It was a stark week across the midwest. Don't get us wrong, there's lots of great stuff out there, but we really had to put our Craigslist talents to the test and we still came up short with only 25 new finds for this week. (Several of the pieces we featured last week are still available though!) But what the Midwest lacks in quantity this week, they make up in quality. Click through the jump to see if there's anything near you!

This week the Midwest Scavenger award (or high virtual high five rather) goes out to Minneapolis. They are always packed full of fantastic finds. Not just from consignment stores either, from basements and homes where Mid Century furnishings go by the wayside. If you are within driving distance, it's worth your time to see what gets listed each week!
