TikiPops - I have no idea where your chairs come from either but I really like them. They're going to look fantastic when you get the seat cushions.


Here's my submission. Where I would have liked to shop for Rattan:

NICE set think I saw this also on Craig's List.
Assume you paid some serious $$ for the rattan
furniture grouping?

Was the bar a local Ebay pickup or did you have it
delivered. Majority of those items when they are
listed are always local pickup?

Mahalo,

Thortiki

Hey Thortiki,

I actually got that set for a steal! The asking price was $3,000.00 and considering the shape and band count it was well deserved. I watched the set on craigslist for about a month before offering the seller $1,000.00 after several rounds of negotiation I ended up purchasing it for $1,100.00

As for the bar, I bought it from a seller in San Diego CA. The buy it now price was $400.00 which included the shipping cost. When I picked it up from the arrival destination the shipping receipt totaled $250.00 dollars which meant I bought it for $150.00 and paid %250.00 for shipping. The secrete when buying non-locally is to find products that include shipping.

This frankl 6 band couch is located in Silver Spring on ebay, you should check it out!

http://cgi.ebay.com/Mid-Century-Modern-Paul-Frankl-Rattan-Sofa_W0QQitemZ350101219008QQcmdZViewItemQQptZAntiques_Furniture?hash=item350101219008&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

This couch has been listed several times on ebay, which means they have not had any luck selling it, you should try and contact them locally and negotiate the price


David

WOW! Nice stuff, guys. You're making me very jealous. It seems like everytime I find a complete set, some design genius has painted it a nice pastel color & ruined it, like the awful 80's makeovers the polynesian restaurants got around here. I'll keep looking & when I do find my set, I'll be posting it right away.

Hey Thortiki and Big Kahuna

Thanks for the love.

Thortiki - I love the pink cushions, they rock!!!!!

Big Kahuna - A good trick I have used in the past looking is to search craigslist globally. You can go to google for example and type in frankl rattan and craigslist and should get some good results. If you find a good deal shipping it will be no issue.

David

SO I just completely scored on Craigslist!!!!

I just bought this 3 band pretzel chair for $15.00!!!!!!!!

I can not believe it.

The chair is in brand new condition---just need to wash it down---but it is sturdy and there is not a chip or crack or anything wrong with it.

The cushions need to be replaced...but I have some atomic printed barkcloth for that and will start looking around for someone to assist me since I know nada about sewing.

But regardless $15.00!! I am so beyond stoked.

Nice score! OK, that does it! I've got to start surfing Craig's list! Just what I need, a new way to accumulate stuff!

I've got this set that I got as an xmas surprise this year - needs some re-habbing, for sure.

In fact, the cushions on the chair have turned into SOLID material - some sort of petrified foam at this point.
Most of it is still my grandmother's basement for now.

There's also a 2-tiered corner table that goes with the amoeba table that I don't have a picture of.
The tables & Chair say "?Ritts co "Tropitan". I haven't found a brand on the couch, yet, but haven't had a chance to look real hard, either.
