I was bummed last week to have missed my weekly Fridays Finest, so I am doing it today to make up for it. This Friday I'll be back in DC to hook up my local friends and I plan on travelling once a month to various locations, just let me know where you want me!
So today I'm feeling quite the Asian Persuasion on Philly's Craigslist. I think I may just have to move there and pick up all of these incredible finds...
Bamboo coffee table $45 (this is screaming hi gloss red)
2 Beige Chairs $10/each (incredible price and remember these gals may have some gorgeous legs, so remove that skirt and if they don't search on google for legs to spice these ladies up, maybe ball and claw)
Mid Century Bamboo Detail Bookshelf $550 (quite pricey, but absolutely gorgeous)
Below is a lovely example of how pretty a simple bamboo bookshelf can look...

Signed Philip and Kelvin LaVerne $4000 (i know, i know expensive for sure, but this is a beauty and probably a good deal for a signed Philip and Kelvin LaVerne coffee table. again, do your research)
I found the exact table and better image of the one above on a high end antique dealer site:
Brass Bamboo Blanket Stand $45 (have a guest room? this would be perfect for hanging extra blankets)
Bamboo Metal/Glass Shelving Unit $85 (really? what an incredible price and what a difference from the one above, but it is less of a bookshelf and more of a display shelf. that wouldn't stop me though)
Stunning Dragon Lamp $50 (i was born in the year of the dragon, so i always seek out dragon images. if you come to my home, you will notice dragons hidden in all sorts of places, nothing in your face. this lamp would be right at home for sure)
Wow Coffee Table $75 (great price for a chic coffee table)
A beautiful inspirational image for the above coffee table...
Vintage Porcelain Asian Man $150 (i just love porcelain asian men, actually wish all men were porcelain ;)
Cherry Headboard $25 (really...this price is incredible!!! just get it and ask questions later, but promise me not to paint it...too gorgeous to paint!)
White Porcelain Lamp $10 (again...just get it and wait for me to pick it up ;)
Asian Cabinet $235 (this would make an awesome bar stand and i would probably paint it white, so the gorgeous details will stand out)
Japanese Screen $350 (how dramatic and gorgeous would this look in front of a grand fireplace, in the summer of course? or to cover up that neglected corner with a bright pop of color. screens add visual interest and this one is stunning.)
Asian Print $20 (simple pretty print with a simple pretty price)
Dragon Fish Lamp $20 (i think this is an absolute steal. note to my sister in law: get this and i'll pay you back. it needs a good polish)
Unique Asian Coffee Table $250 (another fabulous coffee table)
Yellow Vintage Couch $100 (i'm lovin' this girl, she's beautiful! if you get it, tell the owner of this space that the tv shouldn't be the focus of the room. it should be the lovely fireplace that is blocked by the sofa. i almost want to e-mail them and let them know that they have lovely pieces, but the layout is all wrong.)
4 Yellow Chairs $50 (these looks comfy and chic)
Bedroom Set $100 (i know i keep on saying incredible price, but really this is. i would probably not keep all of the pieces together, as i like the eclectic look more. remember: PAINT)
Yellow Vintage Chairs $250 (chic)
Zebra Rug $50 (i like a touch of zebra, but i prefer images and not the real deal...but that's just me)
Fabulous Chairs $200/pair (need side chairs? these are totally fun and in few years when you tire of zebra, remember reupholster and paint if you wish. if you get these, give the adorable kitty a good pet for me)
2 Wingback Chairs $60/both (ummm...reupholster)
2 Unique Upholstered Chairs $50/each (i adore these chairs so unique and fun. i'm diggin' the pink as well)
Hand Carved Louis Chairs $200/pair (i'm running out of words. these are great! ;)
Gold Gilt Mirror Large $150 (perfect above a streamlined entry table or above a fireplace with high ceilings)
My journey is done! Hope you found something of interest and I wish you all a fantastic, inspiring week ahead!
