Trolling Craigslist… San Francisco

Trolling Craigslist San Fran

Ah, San Francisco. Almost close enough to actually buy and hoard. Its one of the most expensive cities in the world and yet there are some good finds, here. Check er out.

san francisco craigslist bamboo vintage eames chair desk chairs

1.  $75 bamboo side table Ok, actually on second thought nix this one. It’s not special and it’s too expensive. You, sir tray, should be $22.

2. $45 50’s retro lamp Now this one can be either HIDEOUS or kinda awesome depending on how you style it. Picture it in a bright white room, next to a white tufted headboard, on a mid century side table and NOT that lampshade. The green would pop and it would be oh-so Anthropologie.

3.$120 Eames Selig Chair That there is a good price for a classic chair. And the color of the leather looks really good.

4.$80 Vintage rolling desk chairs STEAL THESE. Except pay for them. They are awesome and would look super cute in any modern black and white office (or an office of color, any). $80 for two? Don’t be ridiculous.

San Francisco craigslist purple chairs and brass lamp

5. $475/pair Art Deco Chairs They are purple and super feminine, but I love them for the right space. If you are ballsy enough you could even do the scallops different colors. Wha WHAT?

6. $150 Set of Mid Century Chairs Cute. Not amazing. But cheap and cute.

7. $40 Brass Table Lamp This bad boy needs a drum shade then you are in business.

san francisco craigslist vintage couches

8. $200 Vintage Sofa  You are cute and feminine and sweet. Like the red-headed boy in the new Rachel McCaddams movie which i’m watching right now. Whats up with that casting???

9. $80 Mid Century Modern Daybed Oh yeah. I’d even keep that plaid on it (unless its disgusting). $80 for this thing????? A Total steal.

san francisco craigslist pair of chairs

10. $120 Pair of Bertoia chairs If these are real Bertoia chairs for $60 each then that’s insane. So perfect for my front deck.

11. $100 High back bamboo chairs These two are pretty awesome if you have that modern colonial house. Picture them flanking a credenza.

San Francisco lucite towel rack vintage sectional

12. $150 Lucite Towel Rack $150 is too much but I still want it. my towels are being seriously neglected right now just dangling on a hook. Its time I treated them properly and put them on some lucite.

13. $150 Vintage Sectional Its boxy and a lot of cushions, but those lines are good and the proportions of the arms are great and slim.

san francisco craigslist milo baughman and brass table

14. $6800 Restored Milo Baughman Sofa I only included this because its pretty, but OBVIOUSLY one should never spend $6800 on anything on Criagslist. Unless its buying $10,000 of cash. That would be a good deal.

15. $195 Brass Coffee Table What a dreadful picture. ANd not an awesome coffee table, so never mind. I spoke too soon. don’t buy this bad boy. San Francisco has some crazy pricing but I did find some good ones, indeed.

  1. Annie

    Can you edit the link for the eames chair? I’m dyyyying to hoard that!

  2. Taryn

    Dallas next, pretty please?

    • Kara

      Totally agree!! Dallas next please :).

  3. Sarah

    Thaaaaaaannnnkkk yoouuuuuu!

  4. Lily

    Just wrote a post about my own favorite keywords for Craig’s List searches! I can’t exactly suggest my hometown as your next destination (New Haven, CT…) — but I do what I can while I’m here! :)


  5. Elise

    I cracked up at the “don’t spend $6800 unless it’s to buy $10,000 in cash”! But in case any of your readers are, um, slow – let me just say don’t do that. Call the FBI because it’s some sort of money laundering scam. Also call them because FBI agent are cute. At least, they are on TV.

  6. Jenny

    How do you find these wonderful things? What search words do you use?
    I don’t seem to have a lot of luck.
    Love your blog Emily, thank you for such wonderful inspiration.

  7. tammyCA

    Goshdarn, I love those velvet purple chairs & can’t believe they are so low-priced..just rats that they aren’t here. I have a kinda similar one I found at goodwill years ago in a dirty puce-y green that someday I will get re-covered in a pretty rich velvet.

  8. tammyCA

    ha,ha,…goofy me, I read the price wrong on those chairs! I saw $80 instead of $475!…yeah, nevermind.

  9. Rae Ann

    Ok Ms. Queen of all things design ( and yes that is meant in a good way). As for the #2 retro 50’s lamp; isn’t part of the 50’s vibe the whip stritch on the lampshade edge? I would like to know your thinking on why a newer shade would be better?

    P.S Keep the pics of Charlie coming. He is so yummy

  10. Tiffany Troutman

    Can you do a post on how you search these items, keywords, categories, etc?

  11. kelly

    As always, my favorite trolling post never disappoints. BTW, I just voted for your blog on apartment therapy.

  12. Sarah

    I got the brass lamp!
    It is quite substantial and very heavy! How did you know it’d be so awese!
    Now, off to target and or for a decent shade.
    That was so fun!
    Thank you Emily.

    • Sarah

      There’s a low back wood/leather counter chair 1/2 on anthro. Maybe it’s a match for your kitchen?

  17. I’ve been trolling SF Craigslist myself. Check out my Pinterest board!

    • Sarah

      Hot damn! You’re amazing!!!!
      I almost didn’t want to leave a comment cuz I want you to be my secret, but you have found some amazing treasures!!!
      Is it possible to hire you to help me find something????

  18. I love your Craigslist posts. I’m always trolling my local ones (Birmingham, AL). Sometimes I get hesitant on what I should spend on certain items (mostly chairs, I have an addiction) and I like reading your feedback on if it’s a good deal or not. I don’t know if everywhere has this problem(?) but a lot of dealers are selling on Craigslist here and already jacking the prices. So annoying!

  19. Faith

    Pretty please do Orlando! I’ve seen on your instagram (totally not stalking you!) that you sometimes come here…give us some advise!
    PS cute little one; super cute!

  20. The wife and I adore your blog! Great work with the house thus far. Awesome finds on craigs…the bertoias are not authentic though. They have a double edge, authentics are only a single hoop with the metal laid directly on top, rather than sandwiched in between. But still for 60 bucks shoot, I would throw them outside!

  21. Erin

    Ah…. SF my first love. I’m always trolling craigslist for SF and Ptown. I guess I just have withdrawals in the the EU :(

  22. Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.

    If this is the main way in which readers are attracted, the blogger risks having a high bounce rate.
    These steps allow the search engines to identify the content of the images.
    It should compete with fewer websites targeting the same keyword.
