With the onset of warmer weather, that mean’s that tag sale season should be ramping up!! Who’s excited?? That’s right, this girl! There was only one last week that I stopped at, I’m hoping there will be more in the coming weeks.
In order to get us all excited for some amazing tag sale treasures, I thought it was time for another Craigslist Treasure Hunt!
Let start with this working vintage GE fridge for $150. Not an amazing steal, but it looks like it’s in pretty nice condition and I just love those lines. I wouldn’t be so bold as to put it in a kitchen (although I’ve seen it done and it can be amazing), I’d actually put this in a game room or basement hang-out. Refreshments for all!
This cast iron sink is FREE if you take it with a pile of wood. In fact, if you want the wood, you MUST take the sink. What?? I know you’re probably thinking that I’m crazy here, but I practically die over these sinks.
Do you think I’m crazy now?

Getting back to Craigslist… Let’s go Mid Century Modern on your space:
$75 for this MCM liquor cabinet could go either way. It’s a neat piece, certainly, and would add some style to a space, but quality might be questionable. Due to the poor photo quality on the listing, I’m not sure if this is actually wood or laminate… if it was wood, $75 is an awesome deal! laminate? meh. I’d hold off.
If you just want to add a small touch of MCM to your space, can I suggest these bar stools? 3 for $60. The black is a little masculine for my taste, but with a new fabric, I’m sold!
$300 might be a bit steep for this Ethan Allen sofa in my opinion, but it has tons of potential. I simply adore the line of the back and the tailored tufting. If you can work the blue into your space, this could be an unbeatable deal. I would definitely recommend, however, removing that skirt (like I did here). With a little leg showing, she’d be a show-stopper. Ideally, I’d love to reupholster this in a textural neutral, but at $300 it might be a bit pricy for that.
As always, I like to assure you that our local craigslist isn’t all amazing deals, sunshine and butterflies… you can also get a gorilla costume HEAD, standard issue hand cuffs, or dentures…. I think I’ll stick to the furniture and architectural salvage…
Have you gotten any amazing finds on craigslist lately?
