I found this at a garage sale today -- for $5!  The woman having the sale teared up as she took my money as it had belonged to her father, but said she felt better knowing it was going home with someone who would love it.  Another customer asked me (twice!!) if I wanted to sell it for a profit.  Nope -- it's mine!  I'm not too sure what I'll do with the grinder that was fastened to the top (the grinder and cabinet together were $5), but that's a minor issue. ;)
