Ellen Richardson, a graphic designer and Pleasant Plains resident, recently took her Craigslist hunting skills to the next level with the launch of her blog, Listed District. Listed District offers daily DC Craigslist findings of everything from Mid-Century and Industrial furniture, to bikes and the utterly strange. Growing up in north Alabama, Ellen got plenty of flea market and antique mall scouring practice – she’s drawn to the interesting histories of the unique (and strange) so, don’t expect her to post too many IKEA leftovers. Every week Ellen is going to share a roundup of some Phenomenal Finds with PoPville.
I love Fridays. Fridays for me are like Spring-time or New Years – I make all kinds of promises to myself about all of the things that I am or am not going to do, about all of the ways that I’m going to change my life. Fridays also seem like the best day of the week to live in a fantasy world where I don’t give a hoot about the price of anything, a world where money is no object (a world where I am online shopping rather than working…). This week, I didn’t have to go to Design Within Reach to pretend to spend money – Craigslist had everything I needed!
Today’s Phenomenal Finds features some very vintage, very iconic, ‘big-name’ Mid Century pieces that aren’t as easy on the purse strings as the average Listed District finds…but who cares – it’s Friday!
