Based in Atlanta, we're shedding light on the value of clothing that others may have over-looked or simply forgot about. 

Collectively, we salvage retail ruins to provide you with clean looks from the past that you can bring to the present.

Confession: I am a Craigslist junkie

I have a habit of digging up lost treasures and aside from These Odds, Craigslist is my outlet. I wouldn't call it hoarding since I don't collect all the amazing things I see but I definitely get satisfaction out of finding neat items for dirt cheap. 

Well then you have the "Free Stuff" section.... 

If I need a good laugh i browse the free section, if I want to saw awww I browse the free section, but I mostly go to find a steal of a deal without spending a dime. Most of the items that woo me will be antiques or items that are in great shape. I thought I'd share some of the Free items I'm talking about for two reasons. 

1. I have no where to store this or no need for it at the moment.

2. I need to find a reason to share my passive-aggressive Craigslist Junkie behavior.

 ....so here goes

*note: items were found in 5 different cities and were still available as of 7/20/2013 at 8:46 EST

1. ATLANTA : Full size Ibanez Guitar 

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/zip/3949068137.html

okay so after a bit of research this is generally priced for $100+ dollars. This is in great shape...all strings intact and everything. I wish I had a reason to have this but I think this would be ideal for beginners or those looking for a great used guitar.

2. LOS ANGELES: HD Buttercup couch

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/zip/3949035449.html

Yeah, I know what you're thinking...what about the lumps? Nothing that replacement cushioning can't fix. I'll be perfectly honest - I have never heard of HD Buttercup and it may be because I'm in Atlanta. However, after looking at their website there's not a couch on the site retailing for less than $1,000. period. This is a great steal for my west-coasters. 

3. CHICAGO: Couch + 2 Love Seats

http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/zip/3948542069.html

This is going to be a love or a hate reaction...I can feel it. Let me just say that I am in LOVE with these colors. 3 sofas....free? Do you realize you can have 3 jazzy couches for not a single penny. Heck, share them with your two besties in case you're afraid that all 3 might be too much excitement for your living room to handle. 

4. BROOKLYN: Record Player + Records

http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/zip/3948371622.html

When you're into music, how do you turn down a free functional record player WITH records? I think you can sense the excitement I have for the person who picks this one up.

bravo Brooklyn.

5. BOSTON: Women's Schwinn Bicycle

http://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/zip/3944529695.html

I'm envious of the lady who cops this Schwinn. I've been on the lookout for a bike and based on the description, this bike is in merely perfect condition. 

I'm a pretty strong believer that everything you need is already under your nose. I think I rest my case.  

Happy Freebie-ing :D
