between jaunting from target to another target and buying chuck taylors (my all time favorite sneaker) i dropped by goodwill. no surprise there.
i normally walk to the furniture area first. apparently the goodwill fairy was waiting on me.
i tweeted about my find and i received several positive comments. i am not really into trends. sometimes i don't even know what's currently popular. i tend to do my own thing, but after such feedback i wanted to know what all the fuss was about. so i bumped around etsy to price and search card catalogs.
after browsing etsy, i went to ebay.
$199 (this seems to be a good price)
it appears vintage card catalogs are quite pricey and a bit hard to come by. although pricey these pieces are quite the russian doll of storage. i mean look at all of those drawers. after seeing these crazy prices, i wanted to know if anyone has blogged about finding one. i also wanted to see if there were any innovative ideas floating around.
aside from just plain ole refinishing it
this one is probably the most dramatic. they did a lot of deconstructing to get it this way. a lot. way to much for me. however, i like the end result
emily anderson used it as a buffet also in a dining room design
the most common one i found was the housing of wine bottles.
ok. so after looking at all of these images and looking at mine, i think mine is missing one cabinet. however, i wont say anything it was such a good deal.
