Craigslist Stalking

I've been teasing my Dad that he has an addiction - he scours Craigslist and Ebay daily on the hunt for mid-century modern furniture. "Where are you going to put it?" and "What is this for?" have become standard answers from my mom and I as he excitedly flips through his finds on his laptop. He has been greatly disappointed with a few last minute losses on Ebay (to which now apparently won't happen again as he has downloaded that last-second swoop in and get the item software - is that really legal?), but also some great pieces. Like the Womb Chair and Ottoman that for now have a nice home in my bedroom...

Anyways, my Dad's addiction has finally started rubbing off on me, and yesterday I spent the morning with my cup of coffee, and after finishing my daily blog reading (I know this luxury will not last with school starting next week), I tackled DC's Craigslist. And, low and behold, I found the EXACT headboard I wanted to buy (seen here from my bedroom teaser post), barely used, being sold for less than half the price of a new one! I emailed straight away, and the girl is even holding it for me until I get back to DC this weekend. I am so excited. Looks like my bedroom might even get "finished" in the next few weeks (I still have a desk chair to hunt down and a nightstand to paint). Thanks Craigslist.

And now I'm headed out for my last girls' day in California. I'm meeting Sara and Karen at the beach, and later having dinner with Jodi - what a great day!

  1. Russ just had to explain to me about the "ebay software" - someone, somewhere was smart to think of that!
