Object Fetish: Craigslist, May 2005


I love to trawl Craigslist.org for neat bits and pieces, although most of what I come up with is junk - all-MDF made-in-China "authentic Mission oak" entertainment centers and the like. However, in between that stuff are items of note, looking for loving homes; here's what I've found this morning:

  • an attractive 1-drawer telephone table in San Francisco
  • a Barber Bros. armchair, also in San Francisco
  • a tiled A&C/nouveau washstand in Berkeley
  • a Berkeley Mills dining set in Marin
  • a restored quarter-sawn white oak settle in San Francisco
  • an interestingly-framed mirror in San Francisco
  • doorknobs in Seattle
  • a rebuilt Mission pendulum wall clock in Seattle
  • a couple of good looking Couristan rugs in Seattle
  • a Globe Wernicke stacking bookcase in Seattle
  • a very pretty sideboard with mirror, also in Seattle
  • a relatively new-looking Morris rocker in Los Angeles
  • a set of interesting hanging table lamps in Minneapolis
  • a tiger oak piano, also in Minneapolis
  • a rocking chair in Atlanta
  • another, similar chair in San Diego
  • an intricate Nouveau hall stand in San Diego
  • a pretty high-grain golden oak roll-top desk in Manhattan
