Rug for Sale, the New Chairish App, and a HUGE Give Away

It's no secret that I have a seriously intense vintage furniture buying habit. It's the thrill of the hunt that really does it for me. So thank heavens I have a job that gives me a good excuse for all the buying! But sometimes enough is enough and even I hit my limit. Or rather, my storage space hits its limit. So my new rule is if one thing comes home, one thing must leave. And, basically, if I don't have a very specific place for something in the new house, it's on the "must leave" list.

The "must leave" list is ever growing as we continue to empty out the garage and try to get more settled into the house. I am considering doing a big sale sometime soon using Chairish, a site I love and have partnered with in the past. It's a lot like 1st Dibs, but much, much more affordable. It's like a really well-curated Craigslist (basically my dream site).

Chairish recently launched a brand new and really beautiful version of their app that makes selling items a breeze. You basically just take a few photos with your phone and add some descriptive info and press submit. The curators at Chairish will take care of the rest of the listing, including whiting out the background of the main photo.

I decided to list this vintage Persian rug as a test run, and I timed myself just for kicks. It took two minutes and 43 seconds to upload this listing from start to finish! I told you it was a breeze!!

Do you remember this rug from the brownstone? We had it in the garden level entry. I don't have the right space for it in the new house, so, instead of storing it somewhere where it could get damaged, I'd rather see it get sold and properly loved by someone else. Wouldn't you like to have this beauty, with its pops of mint, apricot and hot pink, in your own place? :) The listing is here.

And in even MORE exciting news, if you download the newest version of the Chairish app before February 28, you will be automatically entered to win all of the amazing pieces in the designer room below (worth thousands and thousands of dollars in total). You know I'm especially digging that green sofa!

So to enter the fab giveaway, download the app here (or here if you're reading this from your phone), and that's it! Browsing vintage finds and selling your old treasures has never been easier. I know I've got about five sofas that will be uploaded as soon as I can get them unburied enough to photograph! And I only wish that was an exaggeration. :)

Chairish is a valued sponsor of LGN. Thanks for supporting our partners!

Oh how I love this rug! I'm sure it'll sell in no time.

What a beautiful rug! I am ogling over rugs at the moment - if only I had the money and lived in the US!

Juliet said...

Great rug! I really admire your "rule" for keeping control of the amount of stuff in your home....especially since you have a lot of space and could easily "collect and store" stuff! Awesome mind set...so fresh!

Tracy said...

I can't believe it is already gone!!! What a beautiful rug! I love Chairish as well. I have a couple of beautiful green lamps and some chairs for sale on the site now. In fact, I am off to ship some white Hollywood Regency ceramic pineapple lamps that I just sold using Chairish. I have a vintage obsession as well, so my hubby is thrilled that I am able to make way for the new purchases now.

How are you handling shipping with Chairish?

karen l said...

I agree that Chairish is a terrific idea - however unless you live in the three local areas (LA, San Francisco or New York) prepare to pay as much in shipping as the item costs.
The item listings are actually very reasonable, but shipping is outrageous.

A fun site to look at and get inspired. To bad the app is only for iPhone though! Love those botanical prints!

Amy said...

Oh man! I should have bought this rug last night when I saw it on Chairish, I knew it would go fast! So beautiful

Jamie said...

No Android app?? :(

Margaret Buckley said...

Hi everyone. It's Mugs from Chairish. An Android app is coming soon. Stay tuned.

Downloaded the app! Bam! Love that rug...sigh

What a great giveaway! Wish Chairish would have added the android app first though. Apple isn't everything.:(

Meagan said...

Ya I am so sad that us peeps with Android phones dont get to enter :(

Sarah Cannon said...

Yeah, I'm only seeing an app for iphones. Sad!

Melissa Frye said...

Bummer, no android app.

Perfect! I have a George Nelson for Herman Miller dining room chair that I'm trying unsuccessfully to sell on Craigslist. I am going to give Chairish a try!

Karen said...

Jenny, how do you do Chairish from where you live? I thought you had to be able to pick up what you buy? No?

Katy @ The Non-Consumer Advocate said...

Thanks for the info about Chairish. I went ahead and listed my chair:

Chairish is brilliant! What a super idea! This is exactly what I've been looking for. It's so hard to find quality pieces on Craigslist and yet a site like 1st Dibs is WAY too pricey for me. Thank you for introducing me to this!
