Craigslist Hunting: Chicago

When I'm picking for the shop, I almost never turn to Craigslist (for a million reasons that I won't go into here). CL can be great if you are looking for a unique piece or a project, but it can be tough to find good deals. It seems the emotional attachment to an item drives the price. But!!! I don't live anywhere near Chicago. I thought it might be fun to see what is available for less than $150 in a place where I'll (likely) never pick..

Here are my top faves... and if you live in Chicago and these items are gone by the time you read this, don't hate me.

Thanks for the fun, Chicago! Not only do you have Giordano's deep dish pizza and SPRINKLES cupcakes, but you also have some pretty stellar deals and steals. Y'all have a great week!
