Pick me up off the floor!!!! In the latest episode of our current favorite binge-watching saga, ebay seller nomoredrama4me — Stephanie — sent me this photo yesterday. She calls it Cabinet Mountain, I call it Youngstown Mountain. Yes: Within the warehouse full of New Old stock Hardware store stuff (affiliate link) awaited a mountain o’ steel.
How many cabinets? The original pile measured 40 feet wide… 35 feet deep… 8 feet high.
A few weeks ago, when I first got wind of these, I got on the phone with Stephanie to get more info on this stash. I suggested to her that to sell them, she would need to get them well organized, measured, and checked for any damage. Probably even: Take them out of their boxes so’s potential buyers could see. Like Ben did here, with all the 1948 NOS Youngstowns he found, and which ended up in a museum. But I also told her: Don’t throw out the boxes. The boxes are awesome.
All this week, Stephanie has been working on organizing everything, with the help of her family — that’s daughter Lilly scaling the mountain in the photo. At last count, there were 63 cabinets + countertops (uncounted, I have no photos, can’t wait to see!) plus sinks (ditto, eagerly awaiting.)
A number of the cabinet boxes are marked Monterey. But the doors aren’s wood. They are nubbly textured steel doors painted. Painted Sandalwood. There are blue cabinets, too. And, Stephanie said that yesterday, they uncovered some Whirlpool steel kitchens cabinets. We don’t even have Whirlpools on our list! New discovery!
Stay tuned. More photos to come. This is just a sneak peek. Youngstown Mountain!
