Vintage Goodies from Arizona....

Hi everyone! I'm back...I was only gone for 4 days but each day felt like a week!!!!

I did find time to stop at my favorite junk man...he has the best stuff!

I could not resist this awesome Doctors/Dentists Cabinet and it was a very reasonable price. 

It's heavy cast iron with perfect chippy white paint.

Wouldn't this be so cool in a bathroom holding towels or even better in my sewing room loaded full of vintage sewing treasures!

Look at those awesome legs!!!

It's missing 2 plate glass shelves but Mr. Wild says that can be fixed.
I just love this thing!

All the pictures here look better if you click on them to enlarge.

 Then there was this mirror and it is large...sort of hard to tell here. I had to do everything so fast in those 4 days that I couldn't take the time to get a nice background. But it's a beautiful vintage mirror in perfect shape for $20.
The original price is written in pencil on the back...$5.50!

It's pretty in it's original gold but it could also be beautiful in white!

 And just a couple other little goodies, bad picture but the candle holder on the left I thought could be fun. It holds a glass chimney and a candle.

Thanks for stopping!
Thanks for the nice comments last week. I got my dad back here and they are doing a ton of tests...mainly, he's 98 and things are just wearing out but his mind is as sharp as ever!

I owned a consignment shop in Chattanooga TN back in the mid-90s, and came across that same cabinet at an auction. It was in my shop for only a few minutes before being purchased. I had put a heafty price on it, but that didn't matter to the new owner. I have regretted selling that cabinet since the minute it left the shop! So nice to be reminded of it - enjoy!
