Last week the Midwest was a little quiet when it came to Craigslist. This week we're back with gusto and have gone from a whisper to screaming about the great finds we have to offer. There's an Airstream Trailer in Omaha, Herman Miller Tandem Chairs in St. Louis, Arco lamps in St. Paul and purple Eames Era Seating in Dearborn, Mi. Click through the jump to see these finds and more from our travels all around the great Midwest.

This week's City Of The Week goes to Kansas City! Kansas City is a fluctuating city in the fact that one week you can find only typical thrift store junk and then the next it can be full of amazing Mid Century and modern treasures. This week it's holding it's own, although St. Louis was a close runner up! Check out both cities if you are within driving distance, there's some real steals!
