Cool Vintage File Cabinets at Broadway Antique Market
One of my most prized possessions is an antique wooden filing cabinet that belonged to my great grandfather. He used it to keep patients’ records (he was a doctor here in Chicago); I use it to store purses. But I digress. The cabinet is big—five feet tall—and absolutely gorgeous. Friends are always asking where I got it and how they can get one, too. I finally have an answer to the second question: Head to Broadway Antique Market. They just received a stock and have four left—prices are in the $300 to $400 range. And you don’t need to tell anybody that you use it as a place to keep your shoes or handbags.
