Since I moved into my new studio, I have been on the hunt for eclectic, antique furniture and it has become a bit of an obsession. Those of you who have been following my studio’s progression know that I went from having a couple cool, vintage props to being fully obsessed with finding new funky antiques.
If you’re like me, you’re not necessarily a bargain shopper but you can negotiate and get a few bucks knocked off a price. However, since my recent stumble into the wonderful world of craigslist, I have been going crazy! The prices for some of these antique Victorian and French settees and sofas is absolutely ridiculous. They are total steals! Since my good fortune on craigslist for a couple of pieces, I now check it EVERY day and sometimes several times a day just so I don’t miss something. My husband told me last night that I was going overboard with the couches….oops!
I guess I have a soft spot for antiques…especially Victorian sofas with tufted backs. Below is a photo of Ruby and Agador (Cavalier King Charles Spaniels) on one of my craigslist sofas. I need rehab for craigslist I think. Anyone know of a good place?
