Have you ever looked up Craigslist items for sale at a destination you’re going to? Just by happenstance the other day, I found this photo shared here last August in a post about bathroom pedestal sinks:
It was on Craigslist Santa Fe about a year ago. Hmmm. Maybe there’s pretty good stuff on Santa Fe Craigslist, and we’ll be in Santa Fe soon. So I decided to take a look.
If I were to visit some items while in Santa Fe, here’s what I’d check out …
I’ve been planning to get a red Chinese cabinet like this for a corner of our kitchen, whenever we remove a built-in oak desk and overhead cabinets in that spot. This cabinet is only $500 and if it’s antique that’s a fantastic buy. From the photo, it appears to be a rich blue-red, not an orangey-red. Perfect! For that price, it’s worth shipping to Chicago.
This bench may not look like much, but I like its character. I don’t have any use for it and nowhere to put it, but … I like its character.
Really? You can get things like this through Craigslist? I had no idea. This person says he was stationed in Panama in the 60s and has documentation.
A shabby painted headboard that was made from twin headboards. Looking for a new home.
Very cool folk art puppet. It’s almost 2 feet tall and its arms move.
So there are really cool things available any time you check Craigslist. I get overwhelmed by all the Chicago area listings, but Santa Fe was a good size to “eyeball” listings. So what about it, be adventurous and check out Craigslist the next time you’re planning to visit a new city. You never know what you might find.
