When I visit my brother in Greenville, TX, we always hit the downtown antique malls like Better Days Antiques and Four Generations Mini Mall. We always find great antiques like chemistry sets and Pachinko machines.

In 2007, I fell in love with this vintage record cabinet, particularly how the turntable flips down. If I had to guess I'd say this is from the late '50s or early '60s? Correct me if I'm wrong. I like how you can keep your favorite records beside the player and the other underneath.

Sadly, this cabinet did not come home with me. It was cheap (less than $100), but I couldn't figure a practical way to get to California, and I was legitimately concerned I would have to move to a smaller place. It has long since been purchased by some other lucky vinyl lover.

    What a great cabinet! It looks to be in really great shape too. Shame you couldn't take it home :(

    So beautiful! That's the drawback to finding great bargains while on vacation. Most places outside of the major areas like SF/Bay Area, LA or NYC are far less expensive for antiques, but then you have to figure out how to get it home.
