ISO: 4th of July Holiday Goods - I spy a Patriotic Craigslist Buy

"I spy a Patriotic Craigslist buy."

(CURATING CRAIGSLIST) — Independence Day may be my favorite holiday, but it's living in Oklahoma that makes going all-out in celebration on the 4th of July a tradition I can really get behind. Why?

Because in Oklahoma, no one questions your taste if your red, white and blue Independence Day holiday decorations are still up past the 4th of July.Even if you leave your favorite 4th-of-July stuff up year-round (depending, of course, on how well it's done) an Oklahoman is more inclined to admire your patriotism than brand you a redneck — especially if your patriotic July 4th motif depicts a shabby old American flag.

But, I digress.

The results of my Craigslist search for 4th-of-July buys are surprising! 

You might expect slim pickings shopping for the 4th of July holiday at this late date. But that's not the case on Craigslist. Just today I found page after page of Craigslist listings selling all kinds of Independence Day related goods at deeply discounted prices — so many I felt as though I would never get through them all.

What's surprising is why so many Americans pay full retail price for holiday items!

Here are just a few examples of what I found:


This red, white & blue garden bench...

 The metal star embellishments are a nice touch, don't you think?

A Plethora of American Flags...

I found hand crafted wood American flags for sale on Craigslist ranging in style from Cottage and Shabby Chic to Rustic American. I'm a sucker for reclaimed wood (especially barnwood) and metal, so these are probably my favorite.
The stars on the flag in the first photo are made from barbwire. The stars on the flag in the second photo are twelve gauge shotgun shells split in half and the last two photos are of a flag with 45 caliber brass bullet stars.
 The flags range in price from $25 to $50.

—  $35 to $50 on Craigslist (Stillwater)


This nice "American Flag Crate"...

 A husband and wife team in S. OKC makes them.

—  $20 on Craigslist (South OKC)


Oh Baby!

How adorable is this little 4th of July outfit?!

—  $40 on Craigslist. (Mustang)


Are you a holiday bargain shopper? Do you use Craigslist? In your experience, how does shopping on Craigslist compare to retail?
