You may have gotten the gist that I love vintage school furniture. I’ve found maps, overhead projectors, globes, school chairs, av carts and more av carts and desks from school auctions that are stuffed in every nook and cranny in my house. The banged up the better. Gives it a sense of history and story behind it.
I recently scored this old metal bookcart at a school auction. It was quite the hot commodity but I was determined it was going home with me.
A few accessories and all the sudden it’s a vignette.
There’s just something really unique about a piece in your home that is not “off the rack” so to speak. It’s also versatile enough that I could also use it as a night stand, entertainment stand, bar cart or actually put books on it and use it as a bookcart (novel, eh?).
Every time I share my school auction finds I ALWAYS get a ton of questions about you can find out about school auctions in your area. I’m going to finally share my most guarded shopping secret (that probably isn’t that big of a secret). Publicsurplus.com is where I go and it’s available in most every state. It’s the most popular place that public entities go to sell their old stuff online. Happy school auctioning!
