Midwest Scavenger: 50 Things That Could Be Yours

Midwest Scavenger: 50 Things That Could Be Yours

032009-mwscv.jpg This week for our Midwest Craigslist Scavenger, we decided to add in a little fun. Usually when we are looking for these fabulous steals of deals we are mainly looking at household goods and furniture. But as we were cruising our own Kansas City Craigslist we started checking into the arts+crafts section and the materials section and found some great DIY things. So this week, only 50% of our finds are "typical finds" (ie: retro, dm, mc, modern, vintage) and the other half are things to help you finish up projects around the home for less!

This week the items that are pictured above are bolded below.
