Craigslist Finds: Week of September 17th, 2018

There was so much and not enough to choose from this weekend: people went nuts posting yesterday so it took longer than usual before we even got through everything listed just from the 15th! Here’s our faves in no particular order.

With vinyl sales continuing steadily, care of audiophiles, hipsters and musical purists, why not extend that vintage love to the piece you use to play your records, man?? Yes, there are other players you could get, for far more or less money, but if you have the space and aesthetic inclination, this piece really is the way to go.And it’s less than $500!

If we didn’t have dogs (that we let on the furniture, all the time) this would already be in our living room, legit. A gorgeous piece that is built to last in a timeless style that can fit in to a plethora of decor environments for under $1,000. DO IT.

And this coffee table would actually be totally perfect with the couch above. Can you believe it’s only $150? We like this piece because it’s already kind of dinged and messed up so even you continue to ding or mess it up, that’ll be part of the look instead of a blight on your living room scenery that you will forever notice and never forgive your cousin Dave for causing. Avoid the passive aggressive family get togethers and embrace a table that just gets better with every red wine stain it accumulates!

Cheap and cheerful, we love this for its portable size and versatile lewk. Perfect size for a condo, and perfect price for not breaking the bank!

Even though they aren’t the real thing, at two for $100, you’re still laughing. These Le Corbusier-inspired classics never go out of style, and are an excellent accent for any living room or sitting area!

Yes, we know this style isn’t for everyone. Especially if  this is giving you flashback of your mom’s 1980’s balloon drapes. BUT, that being said, you could easily mix this piece up with some glass nesting tables and a modern chandelier and be the envy of all your ‘contemporary/transitional/beige-style’ friends (zzzzz). THIS. SOFA. IS. EFFIN. FABULOUS.

But just in case the floral explosion is too much, this is a great option that afford you the chance to still go to town with the throw pillows. Perfect for a pop of colour, and at not even half the cost of what this piece would normally cost! Would actually go really well with that condo sized coffee table! New living room for less than $400. Not bad for a Sunday shop.

6 chairs AND the table for under $1,000 is an absolute STEAL. This find will not last long, and even if the upholstery isn’t to your taste, these are some of the easiest chairs out there for you to try your hand at some DIY upholstery (though we quite like the stripe/weave combo, tbh). A super find with a design pedigree like this is the reason we spend so much time looking through all this stuff for you: too good to be true exists sometimes, so get er done!
