Krrb Your Enthusiasm: Sweet Local Offerings For The Home

August is the most common month for birthdays (or so Pop-Up Video told me several years ago), so now’s the time to get yourself a nice new chair. Or a record cabinet. Here are a few tempting deals for the home around Ditmas Park so you can use less gas for stuff transport, and maybe even meet a few new folks in the neighborhood. Happy birthday!

What is it? A space-age rocking chair (shown above)
How much does it cost? $65 on its own
Why do I need it? It’s amazing looking, it rocks, and you know you want to be like this woman. You probably don’t need that little blah of a pillow for $10, though–treat yourself to one from Collyer’s Mansion instead.

What is it? A Thonet-style caned rocking chair
How much does it cost? $65 obo
Why do I need it? It’s light, so it travels easily, it could be perfect in a nursery with an empty corner, and it seems more difficult to find these chairs in light finishes than dark ones.

What is it? A glossy black Windsor chair
How much does it cost? $90
Why do I need it? The shape of the chair is classic, but the fresh coat of paint brings it into the 21st Century. It manages to be sleek and rustic all at once.

krrb record cabinet

What is it? A mid-century wooden record cabinet
How much does it cost? $200 obo
Why do I need it? It’s steeper than the other stuff up for grabs this week, but it’s also surprisingly difficult to find record storage that’s not named Expedit. Plus, we could totally see someone charging twice the price at the Brooklyn Flea.
