This series of posts features Craig's List finds from my area of the country, South Jersey/Philadelphia. Even if you don't live in this area, and most of you don't, I thought it would be fun to show you some interesting and unique pieces and what they are worth. If you are in the market for rare antiques or just trying to gain a knowledge for what pieces are worth, I strongly suggest you visit Craig's List and scour the antique category.
Most sellers will try to give as much information about a piece as possible. So as a regular visitor to CL, I've gained a knowledge of terminology and time-period, as well as an understanding of which pieces are rare as opposed to those that are a dime a dozen. For this series, I'm showing you the ones I think are either rare, very interesting, or an extremely good value.
Please note: Unless otherwise stated, I did NOT purchase any of these items.
WOW! Where does the time go? It's been a few months since I posted this series. My apologies! But no worries - it's back and this one is better than ever! Let's get right to it.
First up is this French Provincial antique sideboard listed for $25.
A similar piece listed for $150.
A pair of antique marble top French Provincial style end tables for $40.
An antique bedroom vanity for $50.
Antique croquet set - $160. A little pricey, but super-cool!!
A stunning mahogany corner cupboard for $175.
Accent chair - $25.
This one is not an antique, but I can think of a few bloggers who would have arm-wrestled for it.
A rooster cabinet for $85.
A set of dressers with bookcase and small desk for $35.
Also not an antique, but a great price is this wood credenza for $35.
And a beautiful accent table for $60.
As mentioned in my disclaimer above, I did not purchase any of these great pieces. My latest CL treasure, and one of my favorites, can be seen by clicking here.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on Craig's List! Thanks for visiting.
