The first year of blogging, I did a thing called 15 under 50 where I featured fifteen things under $50 on Craigslist. Well, like most things, I switched gears and got distracted…I think soft pretzels were involved…with cheese….and a slushie….and other delicious food that makes me gain a bazillion pounds and retreat into the air conditioning during bathing suit season. Speaking of which…you realize, bathing suit season is almost here in Georgia? I finally purged my closet of all bikinis. My stretch marks all got a vote and they won.
See how quickly the conversation gets a mind of its own? Usually a high caloric mind.
Anyhow…I have been trying to sleep train LJ and since his one comfort item is me, well, it makes it hard. So I sit in his room, sitting in the rocking chair….close enough to touch him but try to keep my eyes down and I use my phone as the night light. As long as I don’t make eye contact, he does fine. At least for now 🙂
So while I sit there, avoiding eye contact with my one year old, I troll Craigslist and I thought that it would be fun to virtually shop with you. There aren’t 15 items. They are not under $50. But the idea is the same….here’s stuff I like and think is a good deal….
Which one is your favorite? I love the midcentury modern dresser but the style doesn’t go with our house…so I’d probably pick the glass door hutch (can’t you imagine that in a white coat of paint or a soft green color in a hallway?!) or the Ballard Designs chairs (but only if they were in good shape and even then I would haggle). So what would you pick? These are all Atlanta finds so if you are a local and get one of these, you absolutely have to let me know. You will invite me over to see it and I will bring the soft pretzels 🙂
