As we comb through the Craigslist postings for multiple midwest cities, we are always impressed at the large concentration of "cool" in particular places. So each Friday for the next 4 weeks we will be featuring a specific city in addition to our top 40 Midwest Finds. Click through the jump to see which city made the top of this week's, "Holy cow, if only we lived there.... list."

This Week's Feature City is Detroit, Mi!
For the last 3 weeks in a row it has been all we could do to not hop in the car and make the drive to Detroit. Their Craigslist has been full of fantastic finds at fantastic Midwest prices. Items are well taken care of and are often times rare in nature. This week, there is a lot of high end furniture selling for reduced prices along with some great smaller finds that can be easily found when searching for hot key phrases. Nice work Detroit!
