sometimes the simplest things are the hardest to find. one might expect to see a range of affordable little second hand bookcases like the one above, on craigslist, but no. anyways, i am after one, should you pass one hanging out on a streetside or at a thrift store, do let me know. image from the selby *it's ok for me to neglect the blog for weeks then just pop in with something random, right? oh, happy new year!

  1. Bookshelves are always so hard to find, and new (decent) ones are more expensive than you think they should be. Good luck!

  2. i can't believe it didn't occur to me until right now that my nightstand should just be a bookcase. that's not especially helpful to you, unfortunately, but i appreciate your turning the light bulb on over here!

  3. Dude, I swear you could find one of those at any corner thrift store! In fact I bet the one up the street from my house has like 4 at least. But you are tooooooo far for me to shop for you. You will find one.

    I always love your home posts. They're so you. (And awesome.)

  4. Ha! Tell me about it: I've been looking for pretty much the exact same thing to accommodate this stalagnite of books growing beneath my desk...

    Happy new year!

  5. I've totally seen these on Craigslist. I've even sold 'em on craigslist. I think you just have to check daily. Some days are wins and some—not so much. I have however, been thinking I need to head east and north instead of just thrifting around here. Much better selection out in the boonies.

    Happy new year!

  6. It's *always* the simple things. Like, I really want a simple bedside table (much like that mini bookcase actually) and can I find one? NO.

    Happy New Year!

  7. Also: I finally met Meg Keene. We had too much mulled wine and dished for four hours. It was marvelous and we talked about dear wonderful YOU, and how hard I kick myself that I didn't get the chance to hang while I was still in the hi-dez. So, there's that. xo

    i just moved into my own first apartment, and my boyfriend BUILT me furniture! Can you build a bookcase? He swears it's so easy. I have a cutie new blue bookshelf, two side tables, and an awesome chalkboard. You can do it, too!
