Friday Finds. Mid Century Lovin'!

It's favorite Friday finds time!  I love to scour Craigslist to see MCM items for sale, whether I need or can afford them or not.  It's a bit torturous because I inevitably find something I love and want, but I know we all do it.  Come on, admit it!

Here are some current faves for sale on CL Los Angeles & San Diego:

Walnut Storage Display Case Book Case $375 

Space Age Lamps $300/pair

Gerald Thurston Lamp $175

Walnut Wood Frame Lounge Chairs (need work) $120

Mid Century Teak & Tile End Table $150

DUX Lounge with Cane Backrest $300

Broyhill Sculptra Dresser $485

Paul McCobb Nightstand $150

Danish Modern Lamp $75

DUX 63C Lounge $600

Danish Rosewood Credenza $3000

Milo Baughman Lounge $350

Mid Century Chair $175

Mid Century Coffee Table Magazine Rack $120 (I really want this!)
UPDATE on this piece: I tried to get it.  I emailed 10 minutes after it was posted and said I would purchase it. Got an email about an hour later saying "Someone is coming to see it.  I'll update you".  I replied with an offer of a good amount more than she was asking but when she replied it was already sold.  This one hurt.  I really, really wanted this table.  Oh well, can't win them all.  

Mid Century Slat Bench with Cushion $65

I see some deals here. Granted, they aren't the prices my mid-west friends see but for LA some of these aren't too bad.  I've got my eye on a couple of these pieces but unfortunately I'm off to a meeting in 20 minutes and I have a busy day after.  I'm assuming my favorites here won't be there by day's end.  (I was right - the magazine table, gone in a hour!)

The first one! Wow, I love that perfect mod piece! I'm on the prowl for a mod credenza for my "entryway". I have a better chance of making one than find the right one, of course :)

Loving your blog and passion for thrifting/modern design!

There are several pictures in this post that are making me drool a bit, like the walnut bookcase and the Danish Modern lamp, and of course the rosewood credenza. Your CL has so many more good things than ours does!

How funny is that... I totally named my post today Thrifty Friday Finds before I saw your post... must be channeling some Rhan's... :) Those pieces are really cool! Don't you just HATE it when something cool just slips through your hands? Many times I've had that happen to me on Craigslist.

I love that bookcase! I'd buy that one in a heartbeat. Sorry about the table. Always stinks to lose out.
