Now that it’s been pounded into my head that there are readers outside my fair city of Austin (and beyond the Lone Star State, for that matter), I thought I’d take a wander around random cities’ Craigslist offerings. The rule is, I will randomly pick a city, peruse that city’s furniture listings, and I’ll post the first item that makes me go “hmmmm.” I’ll always include Austin though. Around these parts, we consider it polite to dance with the one who brought ya.

The scale and lines of this lamp are nice and clean…the price is a heck of a deal, considering the going rate.

This might be perfect if you’re planning a powder room update.

LOVE. Very curious about the fabric.

I love using armless loveseats like this in a bedroom.

I also feel compelled to laud this posting’s title.

Somewhat a staple, here’s a good price on an icon.

Phew…I had to go deep for this one. Doesn’t anyone have any cool stuff out there in Miami? I almost gave up.

And I was just talking about ceiling fans yesterday…

I know it seems like I’ve featured a lot of similar mid-century buffet/hutches over the past month, but I couldn’t help it–this was the first thing that spoke to me. The glass doors on the hutch sealed the deal.

Cute, huh? Wish there were a pair.

…and in honor of my recent interviews with the bigs at HGTV:
A sleek entertainment center from Vern Yip’s area. I would advise breaking up the set and using the towers elsewhere (bathrooms? office?), but this is a pretty good deal if the condition’s decent.


A cute console table available in Genevieve Gorder’s hometown.

I know this isn’t exactly representative of Candice Olson’s style, but if you live in her neck of the woods, this is a cute set. If you click through, you’re going to find some HIDEOUS cushions, but I would ditch those babies immediately. Going with basic seat cushions on the chairs (rather than something that wraps around the backs), and smaller square cushions on the ottomans would show off more of the funky lines that drew me to these pieces.
