Craigslist Finds: 2016 August Long Weekend Edition

Get excited people, there’s a lot of deals to be had this weekend! I had to go through 6 pages of stuff that was posted yesterday, and am anticipating today will be more of the same (so hit that refresh button on your Craigslist furniture page cause it’s bargain time!)

How is this $50? I don’t know. Do you really care? Cause it’s gorgeous, sturdy and $50! Looks like that bottom right drawer may need some help, but the wood inlay alone.. This is by far the best deal of the day, if it’s still available. Re-donk-ulous.

Keep it black or spray paint this bad boy yellow to brighten up the balcony! All metal and sturdy this set is going to last you far longer than some of the more inexpensive options available at the same price point. Wine always needs a bistro set because #friends.

Vintage Ikea Wood Coffee Table – $50

I know the words ‘vintage’ and ‘Ikea’ don’t often go hand and hand, but there are some 80’s and 90’s pieces out there that not only stand the test of style time, but of construction time too. Fast fashion and fast furniture trends be damned. This is a good light wood piece that would work well in a Scandinavian minimalist room, or a den/living room that needs a little lightening up for little monies. Worse come to worse and the top isn’t what you wanted? Paint it. It’s $50!

$375 if you only want the chairs, $300 for just the table. Obviously durable and a great solution for a family friendly kitchen dining table. The chairs could use reupholstering if you’re offended by their retro look, but the quality is there with the whole set!

You could easily spend 3x this on a new fake vintage version of this piece, or help someone out who needs the cash and needs to move, and buy this! Being the exceptional person you are, the choice is obvious. And your booze will thank you because it’s embarrassing being relegated to the corner on the kitchen counter like the olive oil and salt and pepper shakers. You’re better than that.

Dude, how are you not clicking on this right now and getting at least 2 of these? Bargain central and they don’t even need to be reupholstered right away. Super modern design with that angled back rest will have your friends who are coming over this afternoon to judge the house/ enjoy a BBQ drooling with envy. Do it for the people.

You’d be spending more buying brand new side tables, but why bother when these are an option and they are so much more badass? For a more masculine look you can leave up beat up and rustic, or sand em down and repaint a bright orange. And they’re portable! Could even out side to side as a coffee table alternative if you and your partner are watching Stranger Things and need to be eating in front of the TV. Which we totally get. Just finished the series and we miss bike riding adventures already.

Versatile set of MCM chairs that can go with an exiting MCM table or switch it up completely with a modern glass table or something a little more heavy metal (like the $300 table from above, perhaps..?). 4 of these for under $300? You’re laughing. All the way to Roncey where you’d pay 3x this at least. Because #fancystores.

This is a little more on the expensive side of what we normally highlight for sure, but how cool is this thing? Cold be used for plants but also works for other small collections of books, medium sized Munnies/Dunnys/Kid Robot Figurines and even some fancy glassware? This piece get 100% on cool factor, fo sho.

Another ‘vintage’ Ikea find, but again, this is a classic piece (from late 90’s/early 2000’s I think) that has stood the stylistic test of time, and is in pretty decent shape. We encourage you to try to negotiate the price a bit to see if you can get it for $75, as it’s been up a few days now with no takers. Would be great in a downtown loft or a a compliment to a white/light furniture decorated living room or den.

Happy Deal Hunting, peeps! And an even happier Monday off!!!! (cause seriously, eff Mondays)
