Craigslist is a great resource for a lot of things, but like all discount shopping experiences, it requires effort. You’re slogging through a million posts–even if you’re gifted at filtering via keyword searches–because there’s just so much schlock to wade through on the site.
Red Chair Market, on the other hand, requires a nominal fee to list furniture and home decor items you want to sell, which ultimately translates into higher quality goods on the site. After all, if you have a dumpy sofa, you’re not going to pay to list it when you can post it on Craigslist for free. Plus, upscale furniture merchants like Five Elements Furniture, Back Home Furniture, and Heather Scott Home are also selling their wares on Red Chair Market, so you can shop for both new and used stuff at the same time.
In the vein of a Craigslist Crawl, here are my picks for the Best of Red Chair Market today:
Red Chair Market is also proving to be a great resource for decorative parts, like interesting lamp finials and chain link in alternative finishes, so the next time you’re in the market for home furnishings or decorative elements, you’ll want to check them out. Right now, the site is Austin-based, but eventually they plan to broaden their scope into other cities.
