Craigslist BONANZA

Lately, I've been despairing about the quality of stuff available on craigslist here in Minneapolis.  several bloggers in other parts of the country do round ups pretty regularly, full of awesome stuff for great prices.  And while I've had my fair share of scores (upholstered headboard, campaign dresser, and hanging rattan chair, for example), the fabulousness seems few and far between.

So imagine my surprise today, when wading through the usual sea of bad photos and mattress ads, to find some great stuff.  (It should be noted that I did not find even one of the three things I am looking for.)  But check it out:

Bernhardt Campaign dresser set (chest, nightstand, and desk), $170.  The chrome fittings are so unique!  Here.
