Thrifty Love {link party #40}

Friday, August 10, 2012

Hey friends! As posted on my facebook page I am super stoked about this find from my local goodwill! This my friends is a super cool library card catalog cabinet. I was so excited to find this but almost passed it by cause I didn't know what I'd do with it. Can you believe that?! Then it came to me it is the perfect housing for all my printed materials for my jewelry business. It's just right to hold all my business cards, jewelry care cards and my shop gift certificates.

Then I came home and looked up the company, Gaylord Bros Inc. This size today sells for $725 brand new! I'd a shot myself if I'd a passed it up, how about you? I wonder what an older one like this sells for? Hum... It is in pretty good shape but it is missing the pull and rod on every drawer and one drawer looks different like it may have come from another cabinet. Oh well it's still fantastic and will go perfectly in my transformed (I wish) office one day. That is if I'm not tempted to sell it!

Here are some features from last week?

How about this one from Woman in Real Life? I say Jelly Beans!

  1. I would have killed for this cabinet! Yay for you!

  2. Are you kidding? That card catalog is amazing! Love love love it!

  3. Totally jealous! I'm on the hunt for a bigger, authentic unit. I've always loved books and the thought of one of these units makes me happy! Don't know if I'll ever find it but I can always hope!

  4. I love the cabinet. Thanks for featuring my jar. I went with buttons, but jelly beans would have been more fun. To tell you the truth, I figured if I put jelly beans in it, it would get broken because my kids would always be opening it. :)

  5. Oh that is an awesome find! I love it! Thank you for sharing at TTF!

  6. Thats on my thrift wishlist and has been for ages! Great find!

  7. I keep looking for those catalog drawers. fond memories of the good old days at the library.

    I just found a toddler table at the local thrift for under $10. Looked online and it is valued over $250.
    I was happy with my find and now I am thrilled!

  8. What wonderful finds!! I love your library card holder! I can't believe you found it at goodwill! :) Happy Monday! xx Holly

  9. You could not have left that behind!

  10. Love those!! Thanx for joining THT!

  11. Perfect that you can repurpose it!
