i win craigslist.

So, after checking my CL searches daily for about a week, I hit the jackpot. Not uno, but DOS of these sexalicious 70s brass etageres (which btw, I learned from a sticker on the back, are actually vintage Italian pieces... I KNOW.)

I named this one Elton
And this one, uh, Elton #2

Yes, I found two separate people with one of these to sell on the same day. And as you can see in the above picture on the right there's a smaller matching piece. I can't tell if it's actually from the same manufacturer or just looks alike. And if you compare all the pictures you can see how the bottom piece slides in and out...I KNOW.


You might recognize them from Erika's home. I coveted that shit so hard...

ModFruGal has one too...

Yesterday was the first day my husband ever heard the word "etagere" and now he can't stop saying it and keeps referring to me "Madam Etagere"

Now I just need a house to put them in.

  12. I was looking at a house in Moon Valley and the owners had left one (or was it two) of these behind. I wanted to ask the real estate agent about taking it off their hands so bad, but they didn't jive style-wise with my house. But they are so darn good-looking!
