Happy Friday, friends! It has been a couple months since my last Facebook Marketplace Finds post, and this month I’m searching close to home, in Park City, Utah. Humble brag- my algorithm is dialed right now, so prepare to see some nice finds! I wish I were in the market for most of these items, but truthfully- I’m on the hunt for one thing in specific. I actually found it, saved it, and am afraid to share it… in case someone beats me to it, ha. Anyway, more inside the post! Click through to check out my finds, and even if you’re not local to my area- remember to save items you like to hone your algorithm. It will serve you similar items based on your actual location.
I’ve been on the hunt for something specific for our basement renovation, found the perfect item, and let’s just say it’s not going well with the seller. I’m not quite ready to share the story with you, as I’ve yet to secure the item and I’m probably one Facebook message away from a restraining order, ha. Fingers crossed it works out, but I’m not very hopeful and have expanded my search to Etsy and Ebay. Ready to see what’s floating around Park City and the surrounding Salt Lake area? These are all items I saved!
Photo disclaimer… I pulled the following images directly from Facebook Marketplace, so the size and quality of some isn’t the best.
Aside from this house looking super charming (I love it!), this Visual Comfort pendant really is a great deal. It retails for $1500. I have a feeling this one will go quick.
These rustic leather chairs scream Park City to me. It’s not the typical style I’m usually after for our house, but I’m very into these! The patina on the seat also gives them that nice antique look. They’d be great at the head of a dining table, in a home office, or an entryway.
If you’re looking for a little project, this vintage table would be perfect for an entryway! With a drawer for closed storage, brass hardware, and capped feet… this classic table is a steal for $50.
What’s not to love about this hefty Henredon dresser? Check out the feet, lion hardware, keyhole hardware, and it has a nero marble top. I definitely think this is worth the $500 asking price, but it has been on the market for a couple of weeks- I bet there is room to negotiate.
I’m hoping these amazing buffet lamps are sold by the time this post goes live. I have a feeling they’re going to go FAST. I love the slender shape, brass base, top finial, and pleated shades. I would have picked these up myself for $35 / pair, if I would have had more time this week.
If you’re looking for lots of classic dining chairs on a budget, look no further. This set of 8 chairs is a great find… don’t let the matching storage unit background fool you. They’re good. The seat upholstery isn’t my favorite, but that can quickly be changed. Click here to learn how to upholster the seat of a chair! I promise, it’s easy.
While not vintage, I’m always keeping my eyes peeled for staples like this. I like the wood turned feet, casters, and it’s a nice neutral color. This would be great as a coffee table, centered in a walk-in closet, or at the foot of a bed… and only $70!
I’d actually love to have these barstools for the basement kitchen, but it’s a set of two and I need 3-4. Someone grab these Henredon swivels! The back has such a fun shape, and the color is fabulous. They’ve been listed for over 9 weeks, so I bet you could easily negotiate.
This coffee table is insane in the best way. I know it’s probably too busy for most, but I love it. The feet, the brass frame, the inlaid top… and it’s Theodore Alexander, so you know the craftsmanship is top notch, heirloom quality. I’m honestly tempted to grab this and swap my current oval coffee table in our formal living room. Should I?!
Last, but not least… woven upholstered chairs from Pottery Barn. There are two up for grabs! These are really nice, with a beautiful heavy duty basketweave.
I’m actually supposed to pick up some chairs in February, but it’s a haul… an 8 hour drive, there and back. Since it’s so far, you know they’re amazing though! I’ll keep you posted. I’m trying not to get prematurely excited.
Great (and frustrating) question, as I’m currently dealing with this. I’ve been trying to purchase something since before Christmas and the seller’s communication is nonexistent… in fact they have a 1 star rating, so I already assumed it wouldn’t be a positive experience. I suppose it depends on how much you want the item? I also find it interesting when people list something to sell, then go MIA. Why even list something in the first place? Your guess is as good as mine for this question.
It totally depends on the item, but I never worry about that (oddly). I’ll bring something directly into our house, give it a dust or scrub, and call it good. Sometimes I’ll also sit something in the sun or leave it in the garage for a few days to air out. I honestly do the least. I do love our little upholstery cleaner though!
What did you think of this one? Anything you’d like me to pick up for you? Ha, halfway joking! Which cities should I search next? Let me know in the comments! Have a fabulous weekend, friends… I’m off to LA > Tokyo. I’ve got posts lined up for next week though- please check back (and know I’ll be a little late on comments)!
