This console from Wisteria has been reduced from $630 to $220 - whoa! - but I'm hoping to find something magical (read: free) from the in-laws' storage shed or on Craigslist.Urban Outfitters:
And this hook (also Urban) is just plain cute:
I also really, really, really (and recently decided that I) want a card catalog. Behold:
(and this lucky duck got hers for free on Craigslist!)
Um, how incredibly great (and versatile!) would one of these be? I could put it in an office and store craft supplies, in a kitchen with all kinds of neat goodies, and what I'm looking for - in the entryway and put all of the little odds & ends - keys, mail, sunglasses, scarves, gloves. I read that they also hold bottles of wine quite nicely (I don't know if I'd do that). Plus, I (briefly) wanted to be a librarian when I was young. Oh card catalog, I want you.
(love the original label on this one)
I found an smaller one (30 drawers) on eBay that could fit the bill with a coat of paint. I showed it to DH, and while I think he secretly liked it (who wouldn't?!), I think he's trying to put a moratorium on adding anything to our home that will later have to be moved. He's always ruining my fun. I was seriously considering bidding on the one I found, since at under $100 it's much cheaper than others I've seen, but I'm sure the shipping costs would be quite high.
What do you think? Should I hold out and hope to come across the perfect card catalog on my local Craigslist? Or am I crazy to want one and should just get a regular, boring console table? (Or make DH happy and not get anything - don't say this option!)
