The gas money would certainly put a dent in the CL savings, but if you’re driving to West Virginia in the near future anyway, make a pitstop to pick up this bad boy:

Pier1 hanging egg chair:
Pier1 hanging egg chair
Asking: $250 [No longer available]
Condition: Not described, but looks good
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Martinsburg, WV
Thoughts: I got really excited for a second when I found this–it would be awesome for my little patio space–but alas, I don’t think it’s worth the drive (for me personally, I mean). If WV is on your destination list this summer, though, I think you should grab it.

Check it out.

Minimalist concrete outdoor patio set:

Asking: $75 [No longer available]
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: U Street, DC
Thoughts: You wouldn’t have to look at many of my posts to know that my personal style isn’t minimalist or modern. I like pattern and layering and texture and vintage pieces, and “clean lines” doesn’t fall high on my priority list. But I kind of love this set. And I really love the price. Someone should get it. Coincidentally, it was purchased at my favorite furniture store in Richmond, where I used to live. The set isn’t listed on their website, but I can guarantee the sellers paid significantly more than $75 when they bought it. La Diff isn’t cheap.

Check it out.

Restored campaign cabinet and shelving unit:

Asking: $350
Condition: Brand new paint job and the drawer and doors work perfectly.
Dimensions: 78″ tall, 30″ wide, 18″ deep
Location: Ashburn, VA
Thoughts: DIY is great in theory, but sometimes you just need to LSEDIFY (let someone else do it for you). Whether you’re constrained by time, space or talent, this already-completed piece might be worth the extra pennies you’ll have to spend to avoid getting your hands dirty.

Check it out. Update: No longer listed.

A pair of BFFEs:

Asking: $100 for the pair, can be sold separately
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Fairfax, VA
Thoughts: When my dad was in the Navy, all the sailors got these ceramic elephant statues overseas. They called them “BFFEs” (pronounced: buffies), which stands for Big Fat Fucking Elephants. I’m actually not sure about the order of the F’s, but you get the gist. My parents had a couple, but one didn’t make it through a move. I’ve got dibs on the remaining one, whether my brother knows/likes it or not. But now you can get a pair too!

Check ’em out. Update: No longer listed.

Vintage peacock chairs and matching table:

Asking: $2200 for four chairs and the table
Condition: “Wonderful quality and in pristine condition”
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Annandale, VA
Thoughts: I usually try not to post such expensive things, but the second I saw this set, I thought of this patio, which is quite possibly the happiest patio that’s ever existed. Hopefully someone with more money (and outdoor space) than me can make good use of these cheerful chairs!
