My Christmas Gift from Craig


Santa stopped at my house a little early this year- weekend before last he hand-delivered a gift from my good friend Craig S. List. You may have heard of him- he has this great website that I am constantly checking out! Ha!
Anyway, proving my theory that good things come on Craigslist when you are least expecting them, I was browsing around the other week and my heart skipped a beat when I spotted this gorgeous (and HUGE) faux bamboo pagoda mirror. Listed for $50. I wasn't even looking for mirrors per se, but somehow this one found me. After a few emails I finagled my way for the seller to include free same-day delivery!


So here are a few pix of my Christmas present from Craig...which maybe is more accurately described as a Christmas present to myself! I haven't gotten a chance to hang it yet, but hope to do that this weekend.





I swooned over the pagoda top!

Craig was very busy this Christmas - after dropping off your mirror - he delivered my 1905 mahogany breakfront! (Owned by one family). I was just "looking". Harmless window shopping....and there it was. Only 30 blocks from home! Craig let me have it for 10% of what I found on 1st Dibs!!!! SCORE!!!!
