random craigslist finds

Emily Oster

Jeff was out last night so I spent the evening watching girly TV and trolling Craigslist. It goes without saying but this is a great way to enjoy a night alone. Below are some random finds.

These iconic mid-century chairs designed by Harry Bertoia, are an awesome find and would look great on our porch. The price, however, is a little high for me at $225 each.

You sort of need to read the full description on this piece but it's a 14"H x 35"W x 29.5"D antique butcher block. It has four legs to go with it and apparently weighs 300 pounds! The seller doesn't list a price and I am sort of tempted to email to ask. This would be an amazing conversation piece - just make sure to reinforce your floors before bringing it into your kitchen. 

Apparently these tables are Milo Baughman but the stickers got lost somewhere along the way. I love the mix of rattan and chrome and think they would add great texture to a room. If I didn't already have a rattan coffee table I would pursue this find more.

This well crafted little chair just caught my eye. Made of burled walnut, it would be nice recovered and tucked into a corner or in a bedroom. 

If you read this Craigslist post, then you know I like to hunt craigslist for antique sinks. This one appears to be really good find - just wish it had the original faucet to go with it. 

I know, I know more antique four post beds - this one is a full and we need a queen so it doesn't work for us but I really like the height of the posts and the shape of the spools.

cost plus world market

Emily Oster

Our nearest World Market is located next to the Trader Joe's I frequent weekly. So if I have a few minutes and its been a while, I will drop in to see what's new. I shop at World Market sort of how I shop at Ikea. I don't expect things to last very long, if I love it I buy it and don't worry too much about the quality and sometimes I get lucky and find a really good buy. The two main sections, I tend to head for are the baskets and the rugs. The baskets because they are reasonably priced and who doesn't need more aesthetically pleasing organizational tools? The rugs because they sell cowhides and sometimes you can find really good ones - solid, neutral, not overly cow-likes ones. I am especially drawn into the store as it gets warmer because where I think they really excel is in outdoor living. Check out these current indoor and outdoor pieces.
