It’s an age-old conundrum – once you are seeking something specific, you cannot find it. The universe hides it from you (or something). Well universe I need a set of shelves for my kitchen and you can stop playing around now, okay!
Here’s what I’m blabbering about:
Why leave such a random hole in such a random place. Run the counter top to the corner. Put in a few more cabinets. You’re killing me Smalls.
What’s really killing me is Craigslist. I think I may have taken St. Louis offerings for granted but the general style in Phoenix seems to be too much money, not enough good taste.
Above is what I have been finding when I search “baker’s rack” on Craigslist Phoenix. Not quite our style here at Living Analog.
So, like my “Dreaming Of” post, I thought I’d be more proactive in this needle-in-a-haystack search and tell you guys what I am looking for. For starters something like this gorgeous industrial bakers rack via Hudson Goods. This one was listed for $1089 . . . .
Or the amazing Decker Bookcase from Anthropologie at a mere $798 . . .
I did find something to buy on Craigslist under my search term “shelves” . . .
Really stunning but at $850 and with nowhere to put it, someone else is going to have to buy this beauty. (Pretty please and let me visit it. Thanks.)
So that’s what I’m searching for. A three-foot wide set of shelves that is maybe around seven-foot tall. With glass or metal or wood or whatever combination of those makes sense. I know it’s out there and I’m going to keep on keeping on until I find it. What are you searching for? Any particular item that just eludes your grasp? Let’s commiserate. Cheers – CT
