I’m joining Hooked on Fridays today because I’m hooked on craigslist.
I’ve spent a lot of time talking about my thrift store purchases on this blog. You know I love to find a great bargain or unexpected treasure. But what if you’re looking for something specific?
Craigslist is a great place to start. I have found several things that I was intentionally looking for, as well as a few that I just stumbled upon while browsing.
This old 46” square window was $20, and exactly what I was looking for to add interest to my big plain window.
My sectional couch was a steal at $260.
My china cabinet was an accidental find for $35!
I also found a black side-by-side refrigerator for $500, with three years left on the extended service contract the original owners had purchased. We had to use it for a repair right away, because after being stored in their garage over the winter it had developed a leak.
Are you looking for something specific? How about something that you could paint or repurpose? Lots of times the older furniture is solid wood and way better quality than you could get brand-new for a comparable price.
There are bargains to be had out there; you just have to look!
