Cruising Craigslist: Suitcases And Wooden Trunks And Tigers, Oh My!

Behold a sample of the best and brightest of housewares from Seattle's Craigslist. This week: suitcases, trunks, and tiger skins.

The piece: A leather suitcase from the '20s or '30s
The Price: $200
Use it for: Styling your house like a J. Crew store with ancient luggage you just happen to have lying around, you classy jetsetter, you.

The piece: A wooden trunk of an undisclosed vintage
The Price: $75
Use it for: Sneakily storing sweaters at the foot of your bed and looking like you collect antiques.

The piece: A tiger skin rug. No, seriously. It's a Sumatran tiger from the 1920s and it's apparently "100% legal to own in Washington."
The Price: $4300
Use it for: Jumping on the animal print trend the design mags are all over these days, furnishing your man-cave like it's an actual cave, or taunting PETA.
