Craigslist's Knick-Knacks & Paddy Whacks

-Accessories are plenty abundant on craiglist.  But they can be hard to find if you are looking for something specific.  Most of the ones I've found are through searches of other things or searches of their description.  For example, I will type in the word “Rustic” in the search box in the "Household" subdirectory and it will pull up all of the listings if anyone used the word rustic to describe their object.

Here are the “rustic” things I’ve found.

I bought this wine opener for Sun Kissed Husband’s birthday.  We’re big wine drinkers around here.

I was told that in the old days, this bowl was used to let the bread dough rise.  I thought it was cool looking but the history was an added bonus.

When I needed to find lampshades for our bedside lamps, it was a simple search of “white lamp shades”.

If you want to use craiglist to accessorize your home, I recommend using key word searches for what best describes the look you are going for on a daily basis.

Tomorrow I’ll tell you about the craigslist MOTHERLOAD + a mini home tour! I

Crud! You totally used the line I have in a post I've written! I just haven't taken all the photos for it yet.

Oh well, I'm still going to run it. Mostly because I think we can share the awesomeness...

Wow!! you are the superwoman finding a great stuff in Craiglist.
Lovely and very interesting those antiques for a beautiful house you have.

That dough bowl is so cool! I have to confess, I've never looked for lampshades. I love Craigslist, but we don't even have a local area. I have to travel a ways to pick up anything I've ever bought.

See my problem is I stink at decorating, and you are clearly awesome at it. . .so your house looks like it belongs in a magazine, and if I decorated my house with things I found on craigs list it would probably look like a junk pile. Does this come naturally to you, or do you read a lot about decorating? Any suggestions for how to do a fun nursery? :-) I really don't like those pre-made bedding sets, and I'd like to try something different, but I'm afraid it will be a hot mess.

Wine drinkers, eh? I think we have way too much in common.

Wow - you are a Craigslist-a-holic! I love these things. I've never really used it, I must admit. Perhaps I should.
