Chicago Craigslist Finds This Week...

Set of two leopard Louis XVI fauteuil chairs.
Old Hickory Tannery leather wingback chair.
Mirror wth inscription at the bottom: NOSCE TE IPSUM, meaning KNOW THYSELF (6 by 7.5 ft).
Sixteen light Empire chandelier.
Bellflower acanthus settee.

Bookshelf that costs more than my car.  It will not be coming home with me.

Empire chest.


  1. I would happily purchase numbers 1 and 5.n Great finds!

  2. Ooohhhh dems some great finds Andie!! I would be taking that leather wing chair home if I could. What a great back and sides! That sideways bookcase looks a lot like mine *winks* How much was it can I ask? Also the french wicker settee? Your CL does have some great stuff! Did you bring any of them home? vanna

  3. Love, love, love the wingback! x Sharon

  4. Can't believe you didn't fall for the "French 1900s vintage ornately carved black lacquered loveseat"! It scares me every time I accidentally click on it. Yikes. Why do that to something that could have been lovely?

  5. I wish we had a craigs list in our little town of 400 people in mid America. I have missed you at my blog. Richard at www.myoldhistorichouse.blogspot.com

  6. I didn't buy the bookcase or the Empire chest. I put a payment down on the chair the chandelier and the mirror. The set of chairs I am picking up tomorrow morning!
    The mirror amd the wing back chair were kind of up there in price but I really like them! The people were kind enough to let me make payments.
    Cris, I met the guy who lacquers the French furmiture. His name is John and he sooooo reminds me of Andy Warhol. Very, very nice man! I actually like the pieces but there is no way on the planet I could have patent leather with six cats! LOL!

  7. Do you know anything about the mirror above "Mirror wth inscription at the bottom: NOSCE TE IPSUM, meaning KNOW THYSELF (6 by 7.5 ft)." Do you know who made this mirror and what is the story behind it.

  8. Ever get info on this mirror? I found one exactly like it cjsweetness76@gmail.com


I love hearing what you have to say!
