moveout weekend guest post!

All right, kids! Adwoa here: Keyse's workplace has shut down her craigslist viewing pleasure just as the long moveout weekend gets started here in Boston! Me to the rescue (especially because my boss isn't in today, and I have otherwise just been watching Human League videos allllll day long).

I think I'm going to keep it mostly mid-century this time, because I was in over my head with the awesome selection and needed a theme to weed out the weak. So keep feeling fascination, get ready to browse with tabs, and I hope that everyone in Boston with good taste needs a dresser this weekend, because the supply right now may just overwhelm your demands!


This hutch is BALLER! I wrote to the seller last time and she will sell it separately for $300; that may have gone down since it didn't sell last go-round. Ask her!

Peter from Beyond Gorgeosity is the stirrer of some serious CL controversy - plus, his prices are way too high. And I think long compound posts are bad manners. So I was going to dismiss this and move on, until I got caught up by the AMAZING lamp in the middle of it that would change my entryway's life for the better.

All right. I would be a dirty, dirty liar if I said I wasn't planning to keep this to myself and not post it (I have been on the hunt for a credenza FOR LIKE EVER). But it may be too short for my space; just in case, be kind!

Credenza / Mid Century Credenza - $150 (Dunstable, MA)

Someone clearly has an excellent grasp of merchandising: I don't even NEED a medicine cabinet and I'm tempted by all that soothing stone

If you have a need for statuary (or, like the seller, simply enjoy cement porn - yikes)

OLD NUDE GARDEN GIRL CEMENT STATUE - $275 (DEDHAM)

I love these! Have you ever seen the ones in bright colors? They look exactly like citrus!

Vintage Kitchen Table & Chairs (4) Dinette Set - $50 (Stoughton, MA)
http://boston.craigslist.org/sob/fuo/1175985052.html


This dresser is like the little match girl... don't you just want to sidle up to it and whisper in its ear that you'll take it away from all this? (And by this, I mean that poo-tastic shade of brown. You know that Four Seasons song, Rag Doll? Such a pretty face should be dressed in lace - or bright blue!)

And if you want to make a set:
2 Mid Century Chairs - Herman Miller LCW look-a-likes - $150
http://boston.craigslist.org/nos/fuo/1183547686.html

(four Thonet chairs for $300 is pretty fab - with each individual chair taken into account, it wouldn't even strain my $100 craigslist rule)

I need to make a school for people who try to sell their ugly shit on craigslist for inflated prices. At a certain point, there is no way these people leave the house on a regular basis if they don't have a grasp on how unfortunate all of this is.

i am heading out to water my plot in the MIT community garden! let me know if there are any mistakes in the links and i'll update them. but i will also leave you with a disclaimer (by the band of the weekend, natch) in case i've erred:

The Human League - Human

i can't embed it because there's advertising in it, but just remember: i'm only human ;) enjoy your long weekend - check out those garage sales, and i hope you each make moveout weekend work for you!
