My Craigslist Finds

-My name is Yanet and I am a craigslistaholic.  I admit it.  I have a problem. It doesn’t help that iPhone apps make it so easy to access.  Yeah, that's right, I have an app for that.  It's normal.  Doesn't everybody?
 Darn you iPhone appps!!!!

But it’s sooo addicting, especially when the deals are so great.  I have to admit that I enjoy the thrill of the hunt the most.  It's such a high to find a piece of furniture that cost 100s of dollars for 50 bucks!

Check out the pieces that I’ve found at a fraction of the cost of retail.

See the transformation of this dresser here.

The buffet looked completely different before its makeover.  The hutch was a curbside find.  Read the full story here.

This dresser was originally without knobs.  Read about how these knobs came to be here.

On the way down from a posh, South Beach high-rise, the original owner went on and on about the famous Italian Designer that had created this futon.  I can’t remember the name, I just know it’s super comfortable.

But is it really an addiction when I can stop any time?  I’ll stop tomorrow…maybe.  Check back tomorrow for my CL accessories. I

Holy cow, you are the queen of CL! I love those banana leaf cubes!

Your house is absolutely and totally retro.

And a deal, too...

Holly said...

Ooh, I love that settee! And for $20, what a steal!

How come I didn't know there is a Craigslist iPhone app...?

Wowww!! you found a great deal at Craig List and your house looks so beautiful with all those furnitures. I love a lot CL too, finding and sometimes selling at that place.
Congrat!! and enjoy your cozy home with your family.

I'm incredibly impressed. I furnished much of my first house with Craig's list but I think you beat me in the deal department. I love the china cabinet, buffet and coffee table. My husband doesn't get CL...but you really can find some phenomenal deals~

Brooke said...

No, no, no, if you ever find you have too much CL loot, you'll call me and I'll be a real blog buddy and remove it for you, okay?

I think there is a 12-step for people who can nod politely like they are listening to the conversation while surfing CL on their iPhone like no one notices!

Are you kidding me? AWESOME finds on CL! Do you sell stuff too? My house is pretty much full, so I'd have to get rid of things if I found such amazing deals.
