It's that time again. Time to see what can be found in another city at a bargain price on craigslist. This time it's the San Fransisco area. The Girlfriend and I have been out here twice in the last couple years and I know there's good stuff to be had. I managed to bring home an Overman pod chair and a Dorothy Schindele desk the summer we drove there and back, although they weren't craigslist finds.
You'll have to do a little work but here's a Heywood Wakefield drop leaf extension table for
a Break The Bank asking price of $85. It's not listed as a Heywood Wakefield so it might just
be still available. Shoot A Modern Line a note for info on how to make this beautiful again and
you'll have a stupid cheap treasure!
There's no way to be sure it's vintage but $50 gets you an amazingly stylish all glass coffee
table that I'd be happy to snatch up! The ad says the items on the table aren't available.
Darn. Don't let that black leather (ette?) sofa scare you off. You don't have to have a Man
Cave for this to work!
...But wouldn't that glass coffee table go nicely with this Wassily reproduction chair? This
one is being offered up for only $150. That's a pretty good deal. Seller say's they picked
it up at a flea market and they're moving overseas...so there may be some wiggle room on
If you are looking for an absolute bargain then how about a $15 round coffee table with
taper legs? It looks like the finish could use some help but a couple of bucks for a rattle
can of your favorite color and a Saturday would bring the magic back to this guy. Or go
crazy and actually refinish it! Either way, it's all sweat equity.
Huh, seems like there's an Eames Lounger knockoff everywhere I look! Looking at the
prices for other items on the San Fran C-list, I'd have to say that an asking price of $250
is an especial bargain for this lounger and ottoman. "Eames" was the only real key word
so this might still be available.
If you are perhaps in need of a large group of Danish style dining chairs you could do worse
than this set of 8 for $350. That comes out to less than $45 each! Nice. And they look like
they are in good condition too. No idea who designed or made them. Just your standard
good looking mid'60s Scandinavian dining chairs.
The chairs that are included in this dining set are so wrong that it kinda hurts. But with an
asking price of just $75 and a large, multi leaf dining table that DOES match the china cabinet,
you can afford to buy the chairs above to round the set out properly! Then you can turn
around and sell the included chairs for $75!
Nice! 3 brand new "Bertoa" (Bertoia) barstools for $200. I'd pilfer that booty! Who cares
that they must be repros? Chrome Bertoia chairs and stools look so good. You'll want to ask
the seller if they are Barstool or Counter height as there is a difference. I had no idea until I
got asked that about some of my barstools.
Now this is what "Not My Turf" is all about! $28 for a danish style daybed sofa! Shazam.
Whoever snatches this baby up will be getting the bargain of the day! It looks really nice
too, like you could just buy it and drop it straight into your living room!
Lastly, I really like what the seller has done with this dresser. Don't it really POP?! I couldn't
use it in my particular joint but I love the idea of it. The seller is offering it up at only $150 and
I'd say there's $150 worth of effort expended on the new finish! It takes a certain level of
commitment to live with something like this but I bet it would look great in a childs room!
