Craigslist

Craigslist finds for the taking!

Similar to drinking water south of the border, Boise’s Craigslist is a gamble.

One day you are stuck with disappointed and at a loss for words or worse, your money. And the next day, you’re Cloud-9 on the sweet set of couches you’re sure no one has procreated on.

By nature, Craigslist is constantly inconsistent. And for many of us, that’s part of its appeal and intrigue.

I was raised by a mother who made every visit to the thrift store a kind of treasure hunt. No matter what day or how much, mom would walk out the door with a fabulous find that others would likely have dismissed. In his eyes, the Unique Boutique was an inexhaustible source of vintage Pyrex, antique jewelry and furniture, and inspiration for creative living. I can only imagine the wonders it would have done if Craigslist had existed in the 80s and early 90s.

An adult by the time Pawn Stars debuted, I remember being energized by the prospect of a complete stranger growing the Civil War bleeding bowl that Aunt Edie wanted them to. And most of the time, the disappointment was just as captivating.

No matter what we’re looking for, there’s an element associated with shopping on Craigslist that harkens back to that same excitement.

While on a recent hunt for this and that, I came across several items that were a total vibe on price and purpose. If something sparks your sense of nostalgia or retail adventure, just click on the title to get in touch with the seller. The categories are: Free Finds, Antiques, and General/Random.
