Traditional barrister bookcase:
traditional barrister bookcase
Asking: $200
Condition: “Very fragile, but in working order”
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Great Falls, VA
Thoughts: It’s not identified as such, but this looks like barrister bookcase (the ones with the glass fronts on each shelf that open upward), and I love those. Not sure how fragile it is, but $200 seems to be a great price for this style; barrister bookcases always seem to be in the $400+ range when I find them on CL. And I like how dark this one is. (Also, if you like pieces with a story, this one is apparently from the Civil War era and was originally purchased by a veteran of that war.)

Check ’em out. No longer available.

Mid Century/Asian display unit:

Asking: $225 
Condition: Not described

Location: Arlington, VA
Thoughts: You’d have to have the perfect piece to fill that bottom left shelf; otherwise this would look really awkward, but I do love the lines….
