I get asked pretty frequently how I manage to find such good things on Craigslist. People always tell me they’re jealous of Austin’s Craigslist because it’s so good.
Well, I like to keep it real around here – sometimes it sucks.
Like this week.
My Craigslist isn’t just that awesome, I’m just stubborn – this week, I looked through 13 pages (which, at 100 items per page is well over 1,000 listings) to find these FOUR pieces. You can see more about how I use Craigslist here.
Told you I’m stubborn.
For those of you who are new around these parts or just don’t understand the purpose of Friday Finds, every week I share some of my favorite stuff from around the internet, and some weeks that stuff happens to be great finds I stumbled on through Craigslist. These pieces aren’t always gorgeous, but they always have potential. The intent is to inspire you and remind you that even though things may not look awesome now, you sometimes have to look beyond the paint job or the fabric.
So, let’s get to the only four pieces on Austin’s Craigslist that piqued my interest this week.
Let this week serve as a reminder that sometimes my Craigslist sucks, too. Though, I have to say I think that chair has some major potential – it’d be a pain to recover but the bones are gorgeous!
Anyone else get frustrated with the lack of good stuff on CL sometimes?
