Craigslist freebie of the day: Vintage subway tiles

Are you redecorating your apartment? Or holding out the hope that one day you can own a place you can redecorate (more likely)? If you are, you’re probably nonplussed by the tile options you have for your bathroom or kitchen. Any idiot can get tiles from a catalog! You want something different, and if you act fast, you can get this Craiglister’s four or five kitchen drawers full of 1920s subway tiles for free. Let’s see the Joneses keep up with that!

Beyond the fact that not everyone can have a bunch of subway tiles for kitchen backsplash, how could you not want something in your apartment that reminds you of the subway day after day. The delightful, stress-free, clean and temperate subway. Even if the tiles turn out to be grody, who cares! Authenticity is the order of the day around here, and nothing is more authentic than a subway tile from 1920 with 100-year-old subway grit stuck on it. The influenza germs on it are probably dead anyway.
