Nobody Wants Your Stuff.

Here's my roundup of items that have been listed or re-listed for way too long and I'm tired of looking at them. Time to pack it in folks - either no one wants this stuff or Craigslist just isn't your scene. You're clogging up my search.

Or, one of you will finally buy something from this list and make me eat my words...at which time I may or may not apologize (probably may not because I'm tired of looking at them). Feel free to dissent.

$50 - Stupid Old Basket. You've LOST YOUR DAMN MIND.

$345 - Not so Rare or Particularly Attractive MCM Chair. I hate this chair more than anything, ever.

There are many, many more, but, WOW - I feel so much better. I should probably do that at least once a month...

$40 - Vintage Desk Fan

Seller says that it doesn't work very well...great color though.


$300 - Pair 70s Barstools

Love the look, I even love the brown color. Somehow, they don't look too drab to me...


$175 - Hideously Beautiful Barstools

I coudn't help myself...

Is there ANY THING that could save these? That blue is too great to write off... I'm thinking maybe painting the wood crisp white? Ideas??


$60 - SWEET barstool


$1590 - Small MCM Sofa

Sweeeeet Baby Jesus. I love this on so many levels...

They better have an excellent explanation for that price though...any one have any insight?

$350 - Set of 3 Gunlocke Chairs

$800 - George Nelson Herman Miller Side Table

Wow, I've never seen this before...pretty amazing. no idea if it's actually "worth" $800, but built-in lamp is beyond iconic.

Listed District on Open House, Washingtonian Magazine!

Check out more of today's finds in my guest spot over at Washingtonian Magazine's real estate and home design blog, "Open House." Thanks to the Open House crew for such a fun opportunity!

$89 - Vintage Do More Desk Chair

Incredible! There are some cool details on these chairs that the seller's pictures don't really show.

Great price too.


$150 - MCM Accent Chair

I see some (slight) hints of the Soren chair...


$340 - Bamboo Bar Cabinet

Love this, I think a fresh coat of high gloss paint would make it a bit less Golden Girls (don't get me wrong, I love the Golden Girls)! Perhaps Tangerine Tango?! Talk that price down though...geeze.

Get Ready for Some Dead Air...

Dry your eyes...

G and I are making our annual Colorado Pilgrimage to enjoy (among other thing) drinks at the Cruise Room in Denver, log cabin building in Fairplay, camping in Aspen, and the legal limit of margaritas in Boulder.

I'll try to post when I can, but it won't be often! ...see ya in a week.

Pic above shows the Standing Dead outside of Boulder, last October...eerie.
