1. First paying customer gets it. By phone or in person ( 817-332-1772 , call. it’s best to call.)
2. No holds. None. We just can’t.
3. No returns. We never want to see this thing again. ever.
We are getting tired of getting rid of new stuff. We thought we’d throw something old into the mix. I’d really like to be writing a post in which we trash something and talk about how sick we are of it, but I can’t. I’m not sick of this. I could never get sick of it. I don’t even know why we are doing it. It’s never even been discussed as a possibility. But, at Simple Things you are accustom to spur of the moment surprises and the loss of things you have grown to love.
So here goes – you might as well start dialing. This is a vintage medical cabinet. It has glass on all sides – And I mean that – 4 sides AND top AND bottom. It sits atop 4 slightly splayed legs. We lovingly call these kind of things “floaters “- in other words, this can’t be crammed against a wall. It likes a little breathing room – and don’t we all? The frame is metal – it looks like a tarnished dirty brass – in a good way, a real good way. We can’t call it brass though, because actually we have no idea. Its about 5′ tall. The frame has some lovely little detailing in the corners. It has three shelves – 4 shelves if you count the bottom. All this glass set in a minimal frame means you have a sculptural little cabinet that even though it takes up some physical space, it visually takes no space at all. Does that make sense?? The door is a little grumpy but we don’t mind that from something that is approaching 100 years old. “Almost 100 years old” – Did you hear that? This ain’t no Restoration Hardware reproduction.
What do you do with it?? Use it however you see fit. We use it to display collections and do-dads. Anything you set in this little cabinet becomes immediately more special. It can be used in a bathroom to hold bottles, containers and towels. Right now it’s holding some lovely little tea towels in our bedding area. I promise you will find the perfect spot.
You’re crazy if you don’t buy it. Crazy.
Personally, this little handwritten “open” is my favorite part.
