Red And White Smaller Hoosier Style Cabinet Climbing In Price

Charming Red And White Kitchen Cabinet   

Old kitchen cabinets in mighty fine condition are seeing outrageous jumps in prices in some parts of the country. I am one of those buyers who takes notice of any red and white kitchen Hoosier style cabinet or baking cupboard I come across. I always seem to have a magic number in my head as to how much I will pay for these cabinets which I adore.

Do I Need Another Red And White Hoosier Style cabinet?

I don't even need another red and white kitchen cabinet, but that doesn't mean that I would not buy one at the right price. But lately the prices for cabinets, especially smaller  (narrow) ones that would work well in an apartment or in a small home or tight spot are fetching big bucks.

Readers Guess The Price?

How much do you think the cabinet shown was selling for ? How much would you pay?
How much have you sold similar cabinets for? What part fo the country are you in?

  1. Oh, it's beautiful! I love it. I never see anything that nice here in rural Missouri. If I found one in that condition I would probably splurge and be willing to pay (gulp) $350, which for me is a lot. But I'm guessing it's probably more like $650 to $850. And compared to the price of new furniture (which is usually of inferior quality and never as charming), even at that price it would still be a good deal.

    So how much was it? I'm really curious! :)

    P.S. Just found you via a photo you posted a while back of vintage enamelware (which I LOVE) that somebody pinned on Pinterest. I'm a recovering antiques dealer who still has way too much cool 1920s-1950s stuff but can't help looking in junk shops for more. ;) Great blog, great taste! :)
