Stalking Chattanooga Craigslist IV

Sunday, March 6, 2011

I check with Craig here in Chattanooga at least 3 times each week and lately I've just been coming up with things like this


Chattavegas?

Thankfully, Craig has stepped it up lately.  Here are my favorite finds - all at bargain prices!

$20

$200


$80


$35


$400 - pricey but its mahogany by Hekmann


$80 for all 3 pieces!
So clever how this fits together!


$300, but seller will negotiate.

All for $299

Whaaat?  The heading for this listing was "Chairs Chairs Chairs" . Do you think this is for real or is it a bait & switch?
Yeah, I do have a call into this guy.  


Oh, and the strangest listing..
is this dinette set.  Don't you think we might want to see the table and chairs?

It's a brand new week - make it a good one!!

Too funny! And yes, that first barrel set you showed is very reminiscent of my current post. Amazing the stuff you can find on CL!

I know it never ceases to amaze me what pops up on CL. The other day I spotted a porcelain baby head atop a lucite pillar with a shade on top...it was a floor lamp! Absolutely odd, hideous and yet I found myself drawn to it. Love those yellow queen anne chairs and that campaign dresser...great finds! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!!

Craigslist is always good for a laugh when it comes to furniture. I loved the settees you found!

My mom has that white wicker set but we sprayed it black and recovered the seats. It sits on her patio in a condo they keep here in the city, perfect size - how fun!

Kristen | Cottage Modern said...

Those first finds were hilarious, but you managed to find some real gems! I can't wait to see what you do with these pieces....

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

That dinette set ad is too funny! Love that first sofa - so much potential! Fun post!

Noelle at Gray Paint Decor said...

LOVE the pink sofa! Just realized I'm not following; I'm fixing that now!!

Karen@StrictlySimpleStyle said...

Love the yellow chairs.

Kind of wondering what's hiding under the fabric on that dinette!

Kendall said...

Someone must buy that $400 campaign chest. It is a steal!!!!

Style Attic said...

Oh my heavens, you just totally made me spit out my drink I cracked up so hard at that last line! I was looking at the picture thinking what in the world and then your caption :D That is too funny. I love your stalker series, I too have to step away from that crime of passion. It hurts my wallet too much ;) XO

Carol@TheDesignPages said...

Those are some of the best and worst furniture pieces I've seen. That last one is just downright hilarious. Guess they're not in a hurry to sell that, huh?

Ashley said...

Seems like you worked through a lot of crap to find some awesome listings...aside from the mystery dining set!

Evie said...

That last one is too funny! I am so afraid of Craigslist being a scam, but I (and my boyfriend who I made go with me) picked up a coffee table this weekend from a Craigslist seller, and I couldn't be more in love with it!

Hyphen Interiors said...

Thanks for the comment! Great post! I love the last pic of the table!! Isn't that hilarious!

for $20 that glass table would be all mine! I can only assume what is uner all those coats is not worth seeing! Great finds...-Ann

SHERRY HART said...

Ha Ha...I'll take that last one! But on a serious note that beautiful sofa...with the wood trim. Yum

nancy @ {COZAMIA} said...

Haha! This is funny...but OMG that pink sofa! that pink sofa! THAT PINK SOFA!! why I can't I ever find stuff like that?!?

InteriorGroupie said...

LOVEEEEE that yellow and white desk!! How much to ship to Toronto? ;)

Sharon @ Decorating is Bliss said...

I too live in Tennessee....oh the hideous orange....if it's orange with a "T" on it, it's only decor for a sports bar. Ugh! Love your blog and I'm so glad I found a fellow Tennesseean blogger! Nice to "meet" you!!
