Tuesday Thrift ... #craigslist

Sunday afternoon Lance asked me to ride with him to pick up a set of bamboo flatware he wanted to purchase from Craig's List.   $50 for 59 pieces of mint condition Japanese gold bamboo flatware.  $50!!!  The score of the month.  


An hour one way and one trip to the QT and we had scored his new flatware.


I am all about shopping on Ebay and Etsy but I don't shop online garage sales and I have never shopped on Craig's List.  I will admit I am scared to death to buy something from someone in this forum.  They make Lifetime movies about these things.  (I see you nodding)  This experience was easy peasy and the woman could not have been nicer.  I am sure she was thinking the same thing we were ... and yet she was just a nice woman who was selling something fabulous and wanted it to go to a nice new home.  On the way home I started thinking about hunting on Craig's List.  What could I really find ... 

Started with searching "bamboo" ...

494 items! 

 After weeding out the numerous listings for bamboo and bamboo flooring I found some great items!


$450 ... I love this set! 
 It would be amazing as a kitchen table or as a game table in the basement.  And if you owned a beach house ... what a great kitchen set.  Or even on the porch.  Yes, I love it!  High gloss with striped cushions and contrast piping!  Oh, simply perfect!


$59 ... amazing price for such a great piece!!  The chest needs a good coat of lacquer with gold handles!  Such a cute little chest!!  And perfect as a server in that beach house!


Bamboo sofa ... $149!  
Such a amazing piece ... recover these cushions in palm leaf fabric with hot pink piping and lacquer the sofa in white.  Yes, our beach house is taking shape!


OMG ... this chaise lounge is off the chain good.  Another piece that needs to be lacquered.  It would be so amazing in a master bedroom for reading.  I just love this piece!  $250


This listing is for a pair of bamboo chairs ... $350.  Would be darling with our bamboo sofa from above!  Our beach house is taking shape ... 


Mirror ... $25.  A few coats of high gloss spray paint and this would be fantastic!

And that was just the best of the items under bamboo!  Can you imagine what I would find if I searched the Palm Beach Florida Craig's List.  I die at the thought!

Then I got even more curious and typed in "campaign" ... 91 items!  

Maybe I should be shopping on Craig's List!
