5 Things to Buy on Craigslist

Let’s face it.  Craigslist is nirvana for those of us who want to find vintage furnishings and housewares at a good price.  It also helps that you can scour amazing finds without getting out of your pajamas if you so desire!

I’m in the middle of selling and buying things for a new house I’m moving into in a few weeks and even though I doubt I’m going to buy everything I see, it’s still fun to shop!  Here are 5 things I like to buy on craigslist!


Lighting- So many lights, lamps, chandeliers….so little time.  I find the best lamps especially old school style on Craigslist.  I also happen to know a great vintage lighting store in North Hollywood  called Practical Props that will easily fix any loose wires for me.

Vintage Swag Chandelier $195
Vintage emerald Green Table Lamp $50.00

Outdoor furniture-I’m looking for a big wood table for a great outdoor patio I’ll be utilizing.  My plan is to add mismatched, comfy chairs.  In the process of looking though, I came across some amazing outdoor patio furniture that is so much cheaper than buying it new!
