Library Card Catalogs for Sale: Nostalgic Beauties in Tennessee

Jan 10, 2011 by

UPDATE:  As of January 19th, the last card catalog has been sold!

UPDATE:  As of January 11th, one of the beauties have found a home, and at this time, only one of these library card catalogs for sale is available.

Lovers of library card catalogs in Tennesee and nearby states are in for a treat!  Two 30-drawer, double-tiered library card catalogs are for sale in Chattanooga, Tennessee!  Better yet, Melinda, the current owner, is thoughtfully willing to drive up to a 50-mile radius to meet the lucky future owners of these card catalogs for sale.

These are dark wood card catalogs from an old library, and according to Melinda, “they are in excellent condition, although a few rods are missing out of one and there may be a few scuffs on them.”

I personally love the double-tiers, which allow you to create an eye-catching display and a fantastic organizational piece with convenient shelves that slide out.  Or you could even separate the two pieces to create even more nooks of library card catalog goodness in your home!

She is selling each card catalog for $400, and she is open to taking PayPal, although it is a local pick-up / meet-up purchase only.  Interested card catalog enthusiasts can contact Melinda to snag one of these beauties at SOLD!
