Always on the search for inexpensive style, an Apartment Therapy reader tipped us off to a great resource for some interesting finds. The University of California at Davis sells equipment and supplies that are no longer needed--and you can browse their inventory online!
The inventory at The Bargain Barn
changes constantly, but when we browsed their offerings today we found this amazing vintage steelcase desk for just $10 as well as a lime green vertical file for $15! It looks like they're in great condition (clearly some cleaning up to do, but overall pretty solid) and are a steal for the price! You can find electronics, drafting tables, card catalogs, desks--and all are pretty cheap. If you have an eye for bargain hunting, this is a great resource.
