Card Catalog for Sale in Florida: A 107 Drawer Beauty from the 1940s!
Update: As of 7/31/11, this lovely card catalog has sold!
Card catalog enthusiasts in Florida are in luck today! Originally from the Winter Park Florida Public Library, this 1940s card catalog for sale is an impressive piece, standing 5 ft wide and 4 ft 9 inches tall. The library retired this lovely piece in 1997 when it went digital, but now it can enjoy a new repurposed life in a happy home. I’ve always wanted a large card catalog cabinet like this in my home, one that could really be the focal point of a room, making its presence known.
This card catalog for sale has 107 drawers, rather than the original 108. However, there is a plaque, noting the history of the piece, that comes with the card catalog that can be placed over any drawer space you desire. (In the photos, it has been placed on the very bottom right).
The listing price for this piece is $845. I’ve seen card catalogs of this size go for $1,000 or more, so if you have always wanted a gorgeous card catalog of this scale, then this is a good deal.
Those interested in purchasing the card catalog for sale can contact Elaine. The card catalog has sold! She lives in the Orlando, Florida area, specifically in the city of Oviedo, near the campus of University of Central Florida.
As always, I would LOVE to see and feature photos of the card catalog in your home!
