Old Enough?

Are you old enough to remember library card catalogs? I sure first job in high school was at the local public library! Love these.....a weekend find while out and about. Not sure if they will be keepers or go on the website at Shabbyfufu, and my daughter has her eye on them as well. Great for the crafter for storage.....and vintage is always better than new~don't you think?

Lots of pretty pieces were posted (finally) on the website today, so come on over for a visit!

Talk soon~

I love it! I sure could use something like that for all my little what nots! Maybe I could clear my desk and finally see whats underneath? Thanks for sharing.

That is so weird Janet! A week ago I was just thinking about the old library card catalog system. I used to love the whole process.

Hugs! Nancy

Yes, I remember, and I loved them then! I have those scattered all over my home, including a cupboard as tall as a closet, with three rows of small ones, then the rest are large! I have them filled with doilies, and others filled with herbs and spices, crafty things, ribbons...I have long ones, which store dvds! Can I have those too?? Gorgeous!

Um Errr - YES! Guilty of being old enough to remember the Library Card Catalogs. I'd love to get my hands on a few sets now, lucky you Janet, I think these are keepers for sure.
I've just been to visit your website - All I can say is it was certainly worth the visit!!

I'm with you all, I have to admit I too remember the dewey decimal system. I spent many an hour filing those cards when I worked in the school library. It's a great find Janet.
