    I snagged a Simplicity Steel Case Cabinet today

    I am so happy!!!!

    Will have to make room in my sewing room for it, but DH has a good attitude about moving it for me.

    It was $25 at an estate sale.
    I know that is a good price.
    I wonder what these things go for.
    I'd have probably paid up to $75 or so, I guess.
    It wasn't on my list of things to look for, but I was happy to see it.

    Do you know what a going rate for these cabinets is?
    I love that the drawers have the dividers.
    It's very clean.

    Do you have one?Name:  IMG_4912.jpg

    That is pretty neat! What good storage. I bet you have several uses for it.

    Great snag! I used to have one of those. Gave it away 2 years ago we we moved. Don't have sewing patterns anymore since I only quilt, and really couldn't find a use for it!

    ​Well done! If you told your fabric stash into pattern sized rectangles, maybe your whole stash can go in it.

    I have one that my DH got years ago from the dumpster behind a Ben Franklin store, it is in my garage and full of clothing patterns from the 70s and 80s.
    When I worked at Monique Fabrics in 1973-74, we could keep discontinued patterns but had to return the pattern envelopes for credit so lots of my patterns are without envelopes!

    Maybe I should clean it out and store fabric in it like Tartan says...

    I have 6 of those in my sewing room, plus one of the older taller Butterick ones, I paid $50 for each of them, then I have a 2 piece counter top on the 6, which makes for my cutting/quilting table, all 7 are full of quilting cottons, then 4 more in our garage, these were free.

    Wonderful!! I tried to buy one when Walmart closed our fabric section at the local store. I never could find anyone to let me now about buying one, I guess they trashed them or sent them back to the company. I would love to have one to store fabric in. I hope to find one to purchase some day, but who knows when or where. Enjoy yours!

    I have two metal lateral files that my company was going to throw away. It fits perfectly in a closet in my spare bedroom. I put all of my fabric stash in them, and it is so much better than how I was storing the fabric before. I can close the doors, and pull out the drawers when needed.

    I had two of them before I left Missouri. I had to leave them there. I stored small pieces of fabric in them to include fat quarters. Just the right size spaces in the drawers. I do miss them.
