I just moved to Fort Greene (and love it, by the way) with nothing but shoes, books, and few items of clothing (a lot). No furniture. In interest of being able to put it all away and not permanently storing it all on the floor (I know... bizarre concept), I have been vetting all the "economical" buying options from Craigslist to eBay and Ikea.
Along this venture, the never-boring Craigslist, per usual, kicked up some interesting finds. It appears there are some Williamsburg sellers who decided a plain picture of the item for sale just wouldn't cut it. So, they decided to add some interest a la American Apparel. I found these pretty funny-- too good not to share, really.
By the way if you are interested in buying either of these:
-Vintage retro display table (with babe), $60 obo: http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/fuo/1542567892.html
-Vintage end table (with dude), $60 obo: http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/fuo/1542565664.html
