15 Craigslist finds packed with patriotic, Rustic American charm

"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.

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

The results of my Craigslist search for Rustic American 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 yesterday I found all kinds of Craigslist listings selling Rustic American and Independence Day related goods at deeply discounted prices.

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

Here are just a few examples of the bargains I found:






This red, white & blue garden bench...

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

Plus a Plethora of American Flags!

I found a number of wonderful American flags hand-crafted from wood 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 flags are my favorite patriotic Independence Day Craigslist finds so far this year. 
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 third and fourth photos are different angle shots of  a flag with 45 caliber brass bullet stars.
 The flags range in price from $25 to $50.
