I Know...I Already "Did" Philadelphia PA. But They Just Got So Much Good Cheap Style There! Wanna Check Some More Out? Sure Ya Do. Status: Not My Turf.

Greetings from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Large Letter Postcard

I felt bad only putting up five items last time, so this time I dropped in an extra. Philly really has some good stuff. I bet a lot of get overlooked by the hunters like me too!


QUEEN BEDROOM SET - $100 (Upper Darby)

"Queen size bedroom set (7 pieces) headboard w/frame, dresser w/ 2 mirrors, 2 night stands, bureau. Cash only."

I love this line by Lane...even though I can't ever remember what it's called! At this price you can bet that it'll need a little love but that is just dirt cheap.


Wire Chair - Possibly Outdoor Chair - $40 (Andorra/Roxborough)

"Wire Chair with Cushions. Barely used! It's been in our clean basement for a few years. Let me know if you want to come look at it. Located very close to Andorra Shopping Center. Asking $40 OBO...Cash only please! Thanks!"

 I've got just one word for this chair: Coolest Chair Ever! It's a freakin' piece of art!


Contemporary gray Dining Chairs set of 6 - $200 (Blue Bell Pa)

"Set of 6 gray velvet contemporary dining chairs. Brass trim on bottom of front of chair. 6 for $200. Will not ship, local pick up only."

Looky looky. You can pick yourself up a set of six Panton Model 275 "S" Chairs for a very reasonable $200 bucks! There were a LOT of cool chairs to be found in Philly this time 'round.


Oak+Fabric Side Chairs (2) and Arm Chair (1) - $39 (Ambler/Plymouth Meeting)

"Comfy and Sturdy. Will consider selling individually (but...they're like a little family and they'd rather stay together!) They were lent to a friend who's now moved, and there's no room for them in my place. Slight scratching on one arm (looks worse in photo than in person, I think)."

Again, NOT Oak! These three chair (for just $13 each) are Erik Buck dining chairs! GO! Go get them! Now! GO!


Very Cute Chairs for Sale! $15 and $10 - $10 (1228 Egypt Rd 19465)

"VERY CUTE CHAIRS! Wooden color one is $15 Red modern chair is only $10! Both are in great condition... LIKE SPANKING NEW!"

That wooden one...doesn't that smack of Vladimir Kagan? At any rate, it's Very stylish and worth every bit of $15, me thinks. Somebody'll probably tell me it's IKEA.


Modern Tulip Green Chair - $140 (Philadelphia 19115)

"Modern tulip green chair. Text or call 267-253-4587 with any questions"

It's a Panton (another Panton design!) "Heart Cone" chair! I have to wonder if it's vintage or a modern knock off. If somebody happens to nab this up let me know. $140 is cheap to find out for real!


5 pc. Sectional w/Ottoman - $450 (Port Richmond Area)

"5 pc Sectional Sofa w/ Ottoman. Beige with Sage piping. $450.00 or best offer.
Please TEXT 602-501-8495 or email to reply. Serious inquiries only please."

I dunno for sure...but there is just something about this sectional. Looks a little like a Kagan design. Anybody got any info on this sofa set?


Desk, end table, divider

"Up for sale r some items from my bachelor days,
1. Computer desk, HEAVY DUTY DESK!!! 29"x4' Has holes for computer wires and 2 drawers, no keys for drawers!! Great condition. Asking 40.00 $$ OBO
2. Light up end table. 30.00 $$ Its 20" tall x13" wide
3. Very unique room divider, it holds CDS!!! Its is in great shape, and its white in color. Asking 40.00 OBO"

That $40 desk is a George Nelson design for Herman Miller. A pretty good buy. I like the lighted end table too. I'm big on chrome right now for some reason.


Chairs studded - $75 (South Philly)

"Set of 4..Salmon color + chrome 50's style chair/studded $75.00 call 267-339-4408"

Finding the Cromecraft style tables is easy, finding the chairs in good shape is hard. That makes 'em valuable. I'd buy these up in a heartbeat. They'd sell quick in my booth space.


Vintage Hans Wegner Style Danish Mid Century Modern Folding Chairs - $150 (Phoenixville)

"I have for sale two very cool vintage Hans Wegner Style, Danish/Mid Century Modern folding rope And wood chairs. The condition is not perfect, but it's quite nice for the age. $150 for both."

I don't usually include ads with keywords like "danish modern" or "mid century" because the seller usually bumps the asking up accordingly but these are still a bargain...if they are still available.


Eames style chair with ottoman - $275 (Harrisburg)

"Charlton Lounge chair in the style of Eames. From what I can research, this chair is from the late 60s. The leather is is Perfect condition. Just Perfect. The chair itself wobbles and needs tightened. I can't figure out how that's done but maybe someone out there can. Therefore, I'm selling it at less than half of what other Charlton chairs of this age/condition go for. There are a few scuffs on the wood as is pictured. Thanks for looking!
717-877-7541 cell/text"

Not a bad price on this Eames Lounger knockoff...again, if someone hasn't already snatched it up!
