A Peek into the C&C Pop-Up Shop’s Storage Unit

Candy Olsen and Courtney Wagner have spent plenty of time in storage lockers on the popular A&E show, Storage Wars: New York. As a result of all their scavenging, these ladies are now in selling mode. Find their wares on Krrb and on the go as these two sell vintage, eclectic and the rare out of their own storage space. Krrb paid a visit to the C&C Pop-Up Shop‘s storage units to check out the goods.

Traveling in style is just not my thing. I wear sweatpants, running shoes and my favorite hoodie. It’s the Californian in me really. Comfort over style every day, every time. But we’ve all seen those drool-worthy jetsetters that make you want to get up that extra hour before your 6am flight to get done up. I’m not sure I’m ready to go that far yet but I think I’ve found the perfect solution — statement luggage. With a gem like this vintage Amelia Earhart suitcase, I can finally fly high.

At Krrb, we believe wholeheartedly in the “Want Not, Waste Not” philosophy. Have as much as you need and what you don’t need, you give on to someone else. It’s a great mantra to practice as your tackle your new year’s resolution to unclutter your life. But it’s an even better mantra to have when we talk about giving back to the community. We did a little research on 5 items you probably have at home that you can donate to those in need

Before we can start getting in with the new in the new year, we need to first get out with the old. Start with clearing out your wardrobes of outdated or unworn clothing. A good rule of thumb is that if you haven’t worn an article of clothing in a year and it is still in good condition, donate it. You’ll find that cleaning out your closet and minimizing your possessions is the easiest way to start fresh and give back to the community—plus it’s tax-deductible too! No clue where to give your goods? No worries! We’ve rounded up a list of non-profit organizations accepting clothing donations in your city

Critical Decor — Twin Peaks, Breaking Down of the Cult Favorite TV Show

Critical Decor — Twin Peaks, Breaking Down of the Cult Favorite TV Show

Diane, spoiler Alert: THERE WILL BE NO SPOILER ALERTS IN THIS POST.  We’re more concerned with “Where do I get that lamp?” than “Who killed Laura Palmer?”. I’ve identified some themes of the sets in hopes to deciefer a code to unlock the secrets buried within David Lynch’s masterpiece. Perhaps through deconstructing it’s decor we can better understand the mysteries of Twin Peaks…or maybe we’ll just get hungry for pie

Martin Luther King Day — A National Day of Service to Your Community

Martin Luther King Day — A National Day of Service to Your Community

Monday is the day to take the day on, not off. Most people have January 20th off and what better way to spend your day than to volunteer for an organization in your hood. In 1994, legislation was signed by congress making Martin Luther King Jr. day a national day of service, tasking all of us to help turn his dreams of a better world into reality through local service

As the holiday dust settles and 2014 finds its footing, more than a few of us have looked up only to find ourselves drowning in STUFF! Whether that stuff is left over wrapping paper that you think you’ll use again but never will, gifts you never really needed (“Thanks Great Aunt Esther, I love you but really, you shouldn’t have”) or simply an accumulation of things that are threatening your sanity, the New Year is always a good time to pair down. But how exactly

Welcome to the daily series, In Search Of, where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today we’re looking for bookends to keep our books standing up straight.

Bookends are fashionable, functional and make great gifts. They’re a great way to showcase that you take your literature seriously, but not seriously enough to pass up on a sombrero in your living room

Welcome to the daily series, In Search Of, where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today we’re looking for velvet!

If it were socially acceptable, we would drape ourselves in velvet. Until that day comes, we’ve scoured the pages of Krrb to help curb our velvet urge

I Want This – Mid-Century Credenza Record Player

I Want This – Mid Century Credenza Record Player

Dance party in the den and old Uncle Doug is spinning! This credenza record player from the 1950s surely sat upon many an avocado shag carpet, maybe with a tray of painted highball glasses on top. It’s easy to imagine yourself surrounded by fake wood paneling, listening to Doo-Wop records or a crackly baseball game playing over the radio.

The fantastic thing is that it can still do all those things! The radio works, the turntable has got four speeds, plus there’s cabinet storage for your vintage vinyl. And just like in the 1950s, by owning it, you’ll be the coolest guy on the block. Count me in!

Find it on Adaptation’s Krrb corner. $795.

We love a good kitchen island. They pull double duty, often working as a chopping station, a breakfast nook and a buffet space. This roundup of stations will have you heating up the kitchen

Resolution — Money Saving Lifehacks for 2014

Resolution — Money Saving Lifehacks for 2014

The new year is here, and I’m as broke as the city of Detroit (as a Michigander I can say that). Like many others reeling from credit card bills post-holiday spending, I’ve decided that this year, I’m going to be smarter about money. I’ve culled some of my favorite money-saving hacks that seem to be the easiest to implement into my life. If these don’t work, I may be forced to marry a millionaire. Either way, its going to be a great year
