<blockquote><HR size='1' color='#dedfdf'> How on earth did you find that gem of a piece of furniture? My DH frequents auctions, yard sales, etc. and he said that they're hard to find and when he does find them, they sell for a BIG price. I think they made them out of solid wood and that they're considered "antiques" now. <HR size='1' color='#dedfdf'></blockquote>
I searched for maybe 10 years for one. I found so many of them on ebay back wast in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey etc, but never found any here in California.
I even used to pend hours every week calling libraries, universities, and school districts in Southern and Central California.
One day two summers ago I hit the jackpot on ebay. Cal State San Bernadino was selling them for an insanely cheap price on ebay. I got mine for $80. We drive three hours to pick it up on the hottest most humid day of the year. Then two and a half hours back.
Its super heavy, too heavy for DH and I together. We needed a third person to help get it off the truck.
Yale has them alot online. Theirs are big and beautiful. They cost about $300 plus shipping unless you could pick them up.

This is my card catalog. I got it from Cal State San Bernadino. I stire a lot of my smaller things in it
These are some of the things:
1&2: Small containers of glitter
3: Pigment powders and Twinkling H2o's
4: I have athing for playing cards so I have a whole drawer full of them
5: Large Bookplates
6: Watercolors and chalks
7: E Beads; I use these when I make my Button Frames
8: Seed Beads and a little bling
9: Chipboard tags
10: Journaling Blocks. I have most of the jourtnaling block stickers in a big Branas basket in one of my Expedits
11: Sanding Blocks. I must have a lifetime supply;p
12: Metal Signage. The Dog Tag Tin is filled with Lil Davis and Making Memories signage
13: Bling, I ahve the rest in my scrapbog, tool bag and in vintage spice jars on a lazy susan on my table
14: Spare blade for craft knives and rotary cutters. I also have my rotary blade sharpener. *If you don't have one of these and you use a rotary trimmer this is a huge money saver.
15: Fabric tabs
16: Larger jars of glitter and small jars of embossing powder. I can't fit my big jars of embossing powder in here.
17: Some of my dry adhesive. I don't store my ATG refills in this drawer.
