How's About A Quick Look Through The Winchester VA Craigslist? Surely There Are Some Stylish Bargains To Be Had Up There? Status: Not My Turf!

Greetings from Winchester, Virginia - Large Letter Postcard

It's been a little over a week since we poked around someone else's back yard.  Let's stick our collective nose into the Winchester Virginia craigslist and see what truffles we can unearth!


Sm Mid-Century Modern Coffee Table- All Wood - $65 (Purcellville)

"This is a really nice mid-century modern coffee table that I picked up and refinished. It is solid wood, probably birch or ash (?) and was sanded, stained and finished to a nice satin finish, medium stain. Really pretty grain and solid, too. A couple of character scratches in the wood that didn't sand out but beautiful! The yellow glow in the close-up is the light reflecting off of it. It is a smaller table- perfect for an apartment or limited space It measures (approximately) 36" long by 18" wide by 15" tall. Email or text (540) Two-2-six-X-X-X-X to come see, no phone calls please. If you leave your number I will call you back if it is available. Cash only. Thanks."

Is that a Paul McCobb coffee table?


kitchen table - $20 (middle rd)

"White round kitchen table. Could seat 3 comfortably. $20 obo. must pick up"

Dang, seems like every one of these posts gets at least one Tulip Table!  Looks like the IKEA variant.


Kitchen table set - $150 (Oakton)

"Glass top kitchen table with four matching see through plastic chairs."

Dunno if it's vintage but it shore is sparkly! I like it.  I'd have it in my booth at The Green Shag Market gladly.


cypress end table - $50 (linden)

"very unique, $50 obo , cash ,calls only 540 683 XXXX, if ad is up then its still for sale, also have a cypress chair for sale in another ad. thank you"

Not a fan of the stump base but it can easily be removed and you could get some taper legs from the hardware store or from a thrift store table or go with hairpin legs!


Mahoghany Armoire and Matching End Table - $150 (Front Royal)

"have a Mahoghany Armoire and an end table that matches. There is an opening that measures 40"x26" and 3 drawers that measure 26"x8". There is also an end table that matches it that has two drawers that measure15"x26". I'm asking $150/OBO. Make me a god offer. I want gone ASAP. I can be reached via text (540)-683-XXXX"

Look at that Big Beautiful Brutalist Beast!  Think it's Lane?  Didn't another manufacturer do this Paul Evans style back then?  Doesn't matter, there's money left all over this!


coffee table/couch stand - $45 (winchester)

"Gold and glass"

I see tables like this attributed to Karl Springer all the time on 1stDibs.  Gotta be careful with what you read on these internets though.  Still, it's stylish.  It's also got a Ernest Trova feel.


Dining table chairs - $125 (Front Royal)

"Six brown modern dining chairs for sale. Dimensions: 34.1 " H x 17.8 " W x 20.0 " D"

At just a tad over $20 each, I'd call that a bargain...even though they are knockoffs.


Sheep Skin / Hide - $35 (Gore / Close to the State Line)

"We are downsizing and getting rid of a lot of stuff that we can't take with us.
Below we have 3 sheep skin / hides.
The first one is dark chocolate brown ( approx 42" x 29" ) Great shape.
The second one is a cream color ( approx 39" x 26" ) Has a dime size tear on the underside.
The third one is a little lighter brown ( approx 38" x 28" ) A little wear but on the underside.
They have not been dyed. Well loved but in good shape.

Asking $35 each or $90 for all 3.

Need gone ASAP"

These are just great to have around the house in the winter.  Get 'em.

I've been reading on other blogs about how expensive Pyrex is getting.  Not here!


Beautiful Mid Century LANE Dining Room Table & Drexel Walnut Chairs - $345 (Winchester, VA)

"Beautiful Mid Century LANE Dining Room Table & 5 Drexel Walnut Chairs
This is a great set you will love it!
These are used and show wear - nothing major
Great quality furniture!
Needs some refinishing
Two of the chairs have broken rungs and you could mend them easily or make 4 perfect chairs

Table: 4' 8" long, 2"11.5" wide, 2' 5"tall"

Make sure you click through, there are some beautiful Drexel Declaration chairs that come with this Lane Acclaim (super rare! only the second I've seen) dining table.


  1. Not my back yard, but not a total haul either. I didn't even know Winchester had a separate Craigslist from DC's. Interesting. Might go after those Pyrex bowls. I saw a set of that pattern on Etsy recently for $90 and that didn't include shipping.

    1. Hi Alison.

      Pyrex is still pretty easy to come by here in the STL. I should be loading up on it but it's just not really my thing. That seemed like a good deal and I know there are a lot of collectors out there. I was surprised by how many items I found given that it's a smaller craigslist. I bet you will be able to find lots of good deals there if you check it once in a while.

  2. As usual, nice finds! I agree the first table does look like a McCobb. The Acclaim table looks salvageable and with the Declaration chairs (even with the damage) it's definitely a score.

    1. Hi Rich.

      Yeah, I'd so love to be able to snag that Acclaim / Declaration set. And I don't normally include many dealers in my scavenging but that one was too good to pass up!

  3. Do you do this as a hobby?
