    I've been trying to find display cabinets to use in my little space at the antique co-op. At only 10' x 10 ' space is at a premium so shelving and wall units are essential. Our mall has an old vacant Dillard's that is being renovated and the display cases were being sold and while cheap they were too heavy and commercial for my use. Then there's the problem of getting the muscle and a truck to move them. I'd seen this at the Goodwill just up the street from the co-op and I really couldn't let it get away. Just the right size at only 5'4" tall by 4'wide. Beautiful design and birch finish similar to Heywood Wakefield pieces. I didn't see any maker marks but I didn't check all that closely either. I found the exact cabinet on Etsy (4th pic) with no mention of a maker. While the door pulls are original it appears the drawer handles have been changed on my piece. I was also able to get it for fifteen dollars less than the original asking price since it had been sitting there a month already. Luckily one of my fellow vendors can help me move it. So I saved the cost of a truck rental which helped pay for this great cabinet. I'm very pleased ! -Mike-

      Thank you Kivatinitz....the last pic isn't mine though it's from Etsy's site since they had a cabinet exactly like this one. When I get mine I'll fill it up and take a picture to replace this one. I have much better goodies to put in mine...lol :)

      Thank you Phil.....I figured it could use just a subtle amount of ambient light on the interior. :)
