Cold Dead Fingers //7

You guys are seriously blowing me away with your freaking amazing #colddeadfingers posts.  Every new post is just SO good.

I found a pretty great pair of lights on Craigslist last week.  At least I thought they were a pair.  When I called the seller to set up a pick up he told me that he had sold one.  Whyyyyyyy?  If you have a pair of anything, keep it that way, I promise it is worth it!  Lights, chairs, eyes (because who wants just one eye?).  All of the things.  Pairs=Joy

So there was just one light.  Which was fine, it was amazing enough on it’s own.   But there is just something about knowing that there is a mate somewhere out there (sing that like Fievel!)  So if you live in Southern UT and you have the twin, message me.  I will pay you with lots of money and Durangos.

Mid Century Hanging Light

Mid Century Hanging Light-2

Mid Century Hanging Light-3


So today, in memory of my light’s forever lost twin, I thought it would be fun to honor those that still have their life partner.

These chairs.  There is nothing more to say.




Lets just pause for a minute and imagine the insane joy of finding these beauties on Craigslist.




Nightstands?  Yes.  $10 for the pair? $*(&#$*  YES!!




Perfect colors.



It was Shannon’s birthday.  Obviously.

    i am wondering what you might do, if anything, to the chain that lamp is hung on? I have a very vintage hanging lamp and it has a similar chain. Not sure i am in love with my own chain but yours looks good. do you plan on leaving the chain as is? thanks

    i am jealous of all of these.

    Haha! I love love love these posts. Those rattan chairs are amaze…balls. Thanks for including my chairs! I should send you a photo of them now…we unzipped the horrible floral fabric to reveal the original citron velvet fabric underneath. That never happens!

    • Mandi 21.08.2014 at 19:45

      Shannon! I want to see them!!!!

  • Amber 21.08.2014 at 19:47

    Thanks for sharing my night stands!!!


  • Jessica Jewkes 21.08.2014 at 20:21

    I tried buying these a month ago and I could never get the guy to call me, text me, or email me back! You lucky girl, you must have the magic touch….too bad he didn’t keep the pair together:(

  • Pat 21.08.2014 at 20:29

    Yeah ~ if you advertise two/twins, keep it that way!! :)

    Can’t wait to see what you do with the onesie.


  • alela sirah 21.08.2014 at 22:27

    All of the pieces are awesome! You could update them or leave them the way they are…

  • Julie Kinnear 22.08.2014 at 09:51

    Generally, I love how vintage is becoming more and more popular. I sometimes wonder why people might be interested in old things. Then, I see how fashionable it can look! For example, your colorful cups or yellow chairs. Amazing!

    I had to clean out my Mom’s house and move long-distance in a very short time (like, a weekend). In my haste I sold 1 of my Mom’s nightstands (they were large and a pair). I still kick myself over it. Like, stomach in knots when I read your post. UGH!!

    Love those bamboo chairs.

  • Rachel Rardon 22.08.2014 at 15:48

    Oh my goodness, that light. Pair or no pair – it is a standout!

  • NJ Basement Waterproofing 22.08.2014 at 16:42

    Wow, these are awesome finds! Good things always come in pairs :)

  • Becky 22.08.2014 at 18:53

    WOW. Those are amazing finds. If only I could have found those nightstands!!! Green with envy over here.

  • Gerry 24.08.2014 at 10:51

    I love the light, pretty simple but interesting to the eye. Like the style.

  • Casey 25.08.2014 at 19:19

    Such great finds! Thanks for sharing my chairs! They are what dreams are made of!

  • Abbie 25.08.2014 at 20:46

    LOVE the lights and the tea cups! Sometimes Craigslist is really great.

  • Paige @ Little Nostalgia 26.08.2014 at 00:00

    TEA. CUPS. Really, all of them are awesome and I’m sad that you only got one of those lights, but the TEA CUPS. I’m having a moment.

    […] Mandy from Vintage Revivals has this feature on her blog / started the hashtag #colddeadfingers for awesome Craigslist, thrift store, and yard sale finds. Every time I scroll through people’s finds I get insanely jealous! But that also inspires me to scroll through Craigslist more regularly. I am specifically looking for some kitchen cabinets I could used to build in a desk in the basement and an MCM cabinet I can use as a TV cabinet when we move the converted dresser down to the basement. While scrolling through Craigslist during my lunch break on Friday I spotted this little beauty. […]
