    DEEPLY envious! I’m a writer and library-lover and crave one of these. Today on our local Craigslist? Saw one for $700… ::sobs::

    I am in bed sick and enjoying your page and decided to punch “free” into my local craigslist. Well sure enough, there was something I needed! A 125 gallon fish tank. I had been debating about getting rid of my class pet (someone donated a turtle) because I don’t like that it is “trapped” in a small aquarium. Now I can give it a big, comfortable home! Absolutely love your blog (and have a card catalog of my own that’s been moving room to room)

    I would use it to hold the stuff that normally ends up in a junk drawer. Have a battery drawer, a post-it drawer, a drawer for pens and pencils, etc – put cute little library tags on the drawers and you will never struggle with a junk drawer again!

    I want that.
    I can come anytime.
    I can move it myself.
    I don’t need your help.

    Cookie cutters. The perfect thing to live in these drawers. If you ever want to sell it I’ll be right over with some cookies and the money! Then I can take my cookie cutters out of their sharpie labeled ziploc bags!

    Wow, oh wow! What a find. I have wanted a wooden card catalogue all my life. Twenty five years ago, they turned up regularly at estate sales, usually out in a tatty garage and filled with boxes of screws or light sockets. Then, about the time I could afford to buy one, they vanished off the face of the planet. I asked everyone. No luck. I tried antiques dealers. No luck. The only card catalogue I could find in a local store was massive, missing some of its drawers, and priced $3,500. Then a few months ago, the heavens parted, and light shone down. Upstairs in a house, in the midst of a busy estate sale, there stood a smallish one. Not as old and cool as yours. A bit mismatched in the drawers, but clean, sturdy, and good. I didn’t care that it was upstairs. I didn’t care that I never saw the rest of the upstairs rooms. It was affordable, and I stood there with one hand clutching my find while I desperately texted for help. Now it’s mine, all mine! Like you, I don’t know what to do with it either. A few drawers hold paperback books. The rest are empty. I don’t care. I LOVE it. Congratulations on your find.

    Hey, I’ll take it off your hands for $100. Looking for just this thing for my essential oils!

    I have a smaller version and I love it! I use it for sewing supplies. One drawer for each color thread. Drawer for sissors. Drawers for seam binding and lace and trims. Drawers for embroidery thread. Etc.

    I use my card catalog to store office supplies, extension cords, etc. Way better than a junk drawer and I can find things.

    “I’ve acquired it, it is awesome, eventually its purpose will be revealed.”

    ’nuff said.

    And yet I have not been able to convince my husband that this is how it works.

    But – spices. Use it for spices. Or socks.

    And who doesn’t like oak??
