Looking For Some Cool Finds Up There In Idaho? Well Maybe...Just Maybe Ol' Mister Mod Can Give Ya A Helpin' Hand. Let's Take A Quick Poke Around The C-List And See What Kinda Trouble We Can Stir Up! Status: Not My Turf
Order yourself a large fries with that shake and thank the lord almighty for the great state of Idaho. You know...'cuz of the potatoes. Let's get down to business and see what we can see on the Boise craigslist.
COW HIDE RUG WITH HAIR ON - $100 (EAGLE)
"RUG IN EXCELLENT CONDITION PAID 599.00 ORIGINALLY LARGE SIZE PIC IS NOT VERY GOOD 284-2641 THE COFFEE TABLE ON THE RUG IS 4FT X 4FT JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF HOW LARGE THE RUG IS "
Stop with the YELLING! Anyway, these are usually $150 and up here in St. Louis but maybe these grow on trees in Idaho. I've got a pair myself but I know they aren't for everybody.
Long coffee table - $5 (boise)
"Long coffee table, $5 first come first serve no holds. Pictures show everything. I dont think it is real wood! "
Sure, it's a Formica top and that's not as classy as a genuine walnut top...but if you got kids.....
mid century homecrest chair and ottoman - $60 (boise)
"great condition 208.949.XXXX"
Nice...and it's got all it's pads.
NICE TEAR DROP TABLE - $20 (Family to Family)
"Hi There, we just got this cool tear drop table in.. It is pretty unique Light in color and ready to be sold..we are located at 5455 N. Glenwood Garden city, Id across from the fairgrounds by Shorty,s Bar & the bingo Hall.. Open from 10-5 W-M. Ask for Pam 208-703-216nine.We also accept donations during regular business hrs. Thank You & Have a Blessed Day!"
It's a Herman Miller with what looks like an Aluminum Group base. You can't beat the $20 asking.
Cow Hide - $100 (McMillan and Five Mile)
"Brown with some white...nice condition....."
Yup, another cowhide rug. Maybe use this one to upholster a cool retro chair you got on the cheap 'cuz of some ripped upholstery.
Hardwood midcentury media storage OBO - $20 (Downtown Boise)
"One solid wood stand or bookcase, guessing mahogany or cherry. Designed for vinyl record and 8 track storage, it's also a great fit for oversize art books and CD or DVD storage. I've had three different shelves in this exact style over the past several years, and although they're finished on all sides, they work great directly mounted to the wall (legs unscrew) as well. Dimensions: 27 inches high, 27.75 wide, 8 deep.
Bought thinking of painting it, but left as is since I decided to go with a larger bookshelf in the spot I bought it for instead. Has some scuffs plus some corroded areas on the metal caps (see picture). $20 or best offer!"
These occasionally sell for a pretty nice chunk of change on eBay. It's actually an encyclopedia stand but they are right...it would be great for CDs and DVDs...which hardly anybody uses anymore! And books...awe...remember books? They were like the internet only made out of trees!
Retro style spoon fork clock - $15 (S nampa Id)
"Cute. Works great."
That's a George Nelson clock! It's probably a reproduction but still...if you are into a retro kitchen you could do worse!
Russel Wright Pitcher, Bowls & Saucers - $30 (SE Boise)
"A set of Russel Wright Iroquois bowls and saucers (mint green) and blue-green pitcher...A VERY nice collection of popular/modern Russel Wright kitchen-ware pieces..These pieces are in great, barely-used condition. $30/OBO."
Good price on some nice Russel Wright. Plenty of meat left on that bone if you wanna put them in an antique mall and an amazing deal if you are collecting!
Apple iMac g4 - $85 (Meridian)
"$I have two iMac 15" g4's for sale. They are both in great shape and have OS 10.5 installed on them. They are $85/ea."
I've got one of these in our bar at home to show movies on. I've got another at the shop for movies and music and even though it's got a tag on it saying not available people keep gawking at it and asking what the price is! I'm of the belief that this little computer is one of the few that will someday be worth anything to collectors.
Malm Zircon Propane Fireplace - $150 (mccall)
"Malm Zircon in great shape, complete, propane fireplace 32,000 btu, Malm still makes this model and installation manuals are printable from their site, this is an excellent cabin fireplace."
Nice price on this Mod fireplace. If this was in the St. Louis area I'd be snatching that up to flip! Looks like they just need it gone too. You might be able to haggle a better deal.
