Val of "Val's Quilting Studio" stores ribbons in her card catalog. It looks like a Gaylord 5 X 3. There's another closer-up pic at the source, showing the interior of a couple of drawers. She also explains where she got her card catalog.
Anyone near New Haven Connecticut, or the Providence Rhode Island area? This person seems to have tons and tons of card catalogs and similar storage units, as well as something like 400 loose card catalog drawers.
From "krislovesfabric," a picture of a really unusual card catalog. I've never seen one with a cabinet below. She uses hers for kitchen items. There are a lot more (close-up) pictures at the source; she was using it as a backdrop for photos of things she had made.
"THE INSIDE STORI BY MARY STORI: STUDIO STORAGE IDEAS" She uses this card catalog for her threads. I can't tell the brand (maybe Gaylord Bros.), but it's clearly modular -- a top, two 5 X3s, a 2-shelf unit, and a base. I love the versatility of this kind.
