SOLD! A 3 Drawer Wooden Cabinet? Nope, It’s a Hidden Trash Can!

UPDATE!  Earlier when I posted this, I got my auctions mixed up.  Two days before I purchased this item, which was clearly identified as a trash can, I purchased a not dissimilar item that is a vegetable bin!  Whoa… too many auctions, perhaps!  (I attended and bid on-line at 8 or 9 that week.)

SO… I’ll just keep my original post below.  But you can rest assured that it was always intended to be a trash can, not a vegetable bin!

The auctioneer called this a vegetable bin, which makes sense because of the long narrow air circulation holes built into the back of the cabinet. 

I’m not sure I’d ever use it as such, although it’s a good way to keep quantities of potatoes.  Because the heavy plastic/rubber trash can is secured firmly inside, it seems to me that you’d always want to use a trash bag with it for cleanliness purposes – so I’m thinking returnables, inside recyclables, or even pet food or bird seed.  Then again, if you’re crafty, you could repaint the entire cabinet and use in a kid’s room.

The piece has a hinged top lid.  The three drawers on front are purely decorative.  

Dimensions:  24″ high x 18″ wide x 13″ deep.

Condition:  It’s in good, used, condition.  There’s a ding on the front of the cabinet as seen in the photos.  That’s real wood on the back, not that fake stuff!  And there are those long narrow air circulation holes built in to the back.

FIRM Price:  $40.00 plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $2.20, for a total of $42.20

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm..

Our Apologies, But Holds Over 24 Hours Must Now Provide a 50% Deposit: As we’ve gotten busier, I’m spending a great deal of time juggling multiple requests for the same item.  Most of the time, something comes up in the customer’s life that prevents him or her from getting here, but sometimes I never do hear from them again. And in the meantime, other customers who are asking about the item end up moving on when the chair or art or garden statue or whatever isn’t immediately available.  So without a deposit, I’ll now have to implement a First Come, First Served policy. 

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup. We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $10.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $10.00.  Shipping isn’t recommended due to the anticipated price of: $30.00.
