need something like this....

keep your eyes peeled durbanites & let me know if you ever spot anything like this or those old dress shop glass cabinets with all the display drawers, so keen for one to store all my bits & pieces in.

My parents have one of these in their house...at one stage they had 2...I will check where the other went to and let you know. Oh and try Gumtree for interesting 2nd hand things x

try itz mary in glenwood and also pop into eclectic, I was in there recently and there wasn't anything exactly like this but they do have new stuff coming in often. unfortunately there's not much like this available in durban, I saw some killer shops in kalk bay with this sort of furniture though, a weekend trip and drive back may be in order! ;-)

Delightful! I hope you do manage to find one like this. Years ago, I saw one something like this at one of the vintage sores in Howick. Maybe a research trip to the Midlands is also a good idea.

Hi Josie
Have a look at WOW-just up from Mooi-was in there last week chatting to owner(Martin?) and sure he said he had something like the glass top one at the bric-a-brac/furniture shop at Vanille(used to be Here & Now)-think that's what you're after?
My mom has something like this pic-but with wood legs-it's from an old post office-she won't part with it though-have already tried my luck!!
sorry i missed your b'day-hope it was good.xxxchants
