Craigslist Guy part 2

You saw my first round of loot from the craigslist guy here but I haven’t had a chance to share round 2.

The best purchase of the day, at $75 was….

A printer block cabinet with 20 drawers.

B-E-A-Utiful. I love it.

We also got this Morris Chair which is basically an old fashioned recliner. I have the back cushion as well but it’s in the shed. It needs to be recovered something awful and that old horsehair upholstery gets a bit buggy. I’m planning on using some bug bombs in the house soon and I’ll pull it in when I finally get around to that.

The chair is missing the bar that holds the seat up but I found a guy online that will make a replacement bar in brass for $60 cut to length so we’ll get ordered soon and we’ll be good to go.

The guy is at www.scarboroughmarshfurniture.com if you’re looking for Morris chair parts. I haven’t ordered yet so I can’t give a review but I will once I’ve got some experience.

The Craigslist guy was a big lamp collector. He had a ton of brass lamps..no really, I think there may have been more than 2000 lbs of brass lamps in his house and barn. Maybe that’s an overstatement but it really was incredible.

I showed you the pictures from round 1.

Round 2 we picked up this 2 light ceiling fixture that Stefan regretted not getting the first time.

We also got another table lamp and a handful of brass pendant mounts.

And these cool gas conversion outdoor lanterns. They’ve already been electrified but they need new wiring which should be easy to replace.

And since we got so many lights, we got a bunch of glass shades to go with them.

All in all a good trip. Our friend who introduced us to Craigslist guy also went back and got more stuff. Some map drawers and other misc. items. I’m glad we found this guy. Lamps that we like are so hard to come by. Now we just need to get to polishing and re-wiring…always a project!

      yep great deal for that cabinet. It’s perfect for holding my husband’s sheet music collection.
