Retro Metal Cabinets for sale
My buddy Joseph has a set of cool retro metal kitchen cabinets for sale at a reasonable price. He has the upper and lower portions, and says they are in great shape and the drawers slide like new. The brand is vintage 1940’s or 1950’s Youngstown steel cabinets. They are an off-white color in pretty good condition, but could be brightened up with some cleaning and polishing. I believe they are currently sitting in his garage collecting dust so if you would like to give them a home, let me know and I’ll hook you up with Joseph’s contact info.
sarah! i have NEVER seen that model before — the “serving center”! Don’t erase or delete this photo, I really want to keep it for History!
Google Younstown Kitchen Servi-Center for the nifty ad that describes all the wonderful features of this particular cabinet! Very interesting! Here’s the link:
hi sarah. me again. i am going to post this on the blog. possible for your friend to tell us what is says on the logo on the upper left? we — me and 52PostnBeam are SUPER INTERESTED!
Did you see the other pics? I can’t believe you have never seen this model before. The owner said it was in his grandma’s lake house – a small little lakeside cabin at the Lake of the Ozarks. Know anyone who might want to buy it?
I feel so much haieppr now I understand all this. Thanks!
This model says it is a Youngstown Kitchens Servi-Center. Also, there are lean out storage bins on each side of the faucet. I will post more pics!
[…] seen yet: A Youngstown Servi-Center, which was originally posted on real estate agent and reader Sarah Snodgrass’ blog, At Home in Brookside, Kansas City. That’s Sarah –> … I always like me a smiling face on the blog. Anyway, this […]
Here’s a link to an ad for this cabinet – it describes ALL the wonderful features of the cabinet for someone wanting to remodel their kitchen in 1958!
Interesting Maginzine. Not only does it have the Youngstown Servi-Center, but a good recepe for Niblets corn, italian dressing wrapped in foil and cooked on the grill. I might try this one out.
Oh, and don’t miss the piece about the launching of the Edmund Fitgerald.
If you look closely that is not frayed wiring by the light, it is the copper plumbing to feed the hot and cold water to the faucet. That light right there is still however a big YIKES! Nothing like getting electrocuted while scrubbing the lasagna pan and mind you this was long before grounding or GFI’s were common.
what a fide! i would love it in my kitchen but i live in france. i’ve been looking for formica kitchens and here they have some gems but none with the sink integrated into the unit which is a space saver since kitchens here are generally small. you can find formica buffets on ebay france but most are non descript. too bad!
I found this post during a search for Youngstown Kitchens. I’m at my parents house at Lake of the Ozarks, mo & my dad has a sink cabinet unit on the dock by Youngstown. He uses it for cleaning fish.
I keep telling him he needs to let me take it home & refinish it!
He got it from a house in St. Louis a friend was rehabbing.
I’m interested in the metal cabinets and wondering how much you would like to sell them for. Are they still available?
Is this still for sale?
Nope, it was snatched up pretty quick. Thanks for asking!
I have a full set of metal kitchen cabinets and stainless steel countertops , even a working vent hood and range. Pristine condition. In Pennsylvania.
I also have a Youngstown metal cabinet it is 18″ wide with a drawer on top and a tip out flower bin with hinged lid on the bottom. The top has a rolled backsplash and is red and white marbled finish with chrome trim. I think it is a stand alone cabinet but it could have been part of a set though my mom only had this particular piece.
I forgot to mention it is white in color like the servi-center in this add and I would sell it gladly so it gets a good home.
Sarah, I have just bought a 1952 condo in downtown Dallas and it has a galley kitchen, and it is entire kitchen is Crane orginial cabinets in great condition. They are all white, no handles and has the Crane logo on the center cabinets. can I send a photo and get some help to sell these to someone, I do not want to trash them, they are in perfect condition for someone remolding and wants a retro kitchen Joy
Thanks for letting me know! Retro Renovation blog has a forum which is a great place to get in contact with folks who want to buy or sell things of this nature. You should also post them on your local Craigslist. If you could send a photo, I would love to see them, and I’m happy to write a post about it too. -Sarah
How do we send pictures ?
I’d add them to Ebay (for pickup only) or find some groups online to share them with. My website is just a personal blog, so it’s not a great place to sell. Retro Renovation blog is a great resource too – and I bet they’d share your listing if you listed them for sale somewhere.
We have St. Charles metal cabinets in our kitchen, from the 1950’s. They are white. If anyone is interested in buying our cabinets, call 314-961-3960.
Did Youngstown make a range hood in the 40’s or 50’s. If so, does anyone know where a person can purchase one?
I have a youngstown cabinet believed to be in the 40’s. It has the emblem and inside the door is an athenticity Decal with the serial number 26546. I’m wanting to know what its worth and looking to find a buyer for this cabinet.
I just bought a house that was built in 1953 which has never been updated. It has an original 1953 kitchen which must have been state-of-the-art then. It has a Thermador Oven, Thermador electric Range top and white metal cabinets, most of which are Crosley. Some are also Geneva brand. There is even a GE dishwasher – drawer type. How many houses had a dishwasher in 1953?! The metal cabinets are in great shape except under the sink where it appears there had been some water issues. These are very solid steel with no dings. Oh yeah, the kitchen still has a 4′ wide cast iron/enamel sink – double basins and drainboards on each side. This house was gently lived in by two sisters for their entire lives.
I need to determine whether I recycle these cabinets, etc. for metal or how I might sell them. I see you have a following of folks who love the retro look. I have pictures, but not sure how to post so others can see. Any thoughts or recommendations?
Thanks for writing. I think the best place is the Retro Renovation Forum – buyers and sellers all over the country check there. Follow this link and scroll down to input your cabinet listing. Be sure to link to photos, or she will delete you.
Your cabinets sound really special; ideally some day I would love to have something exactly like that my hobby/gardening room! Ahh, some day 🙂
I have been searching for retro metal cabinets with the sink for a long time. I have a small kitchen. My problem is that I live in middle Tennessee, everything that is for sale costs twice as much to ship to me than it costs. I can’t find anything close to home that is in good enough shape to purchase. Do you know of anything in my area that ships for free, or that is close enough for me to travel to and pick up? The largest town I live by is Dickson, Tennessee. Thank you
Interested are these available.
I have Youngstown Steel Cabinets with chrome trim around the edges and a chrome backsplash. They’ve been in use in our house since it was built in the mid 40s. I can’t find anyone willing to restore them, so I’m considering selling them.
I’m in southwest Missouri. Have a 1942 house with the original Youngstown Steel Cabinets with chrome trim around the edges and a chrome backsplash. I can’t find anyone willing to restore them. I’m considering selling them. Has the absolutely fabulous double sink with drain boards on each side.
IF this is Still Available, could you please let me know what the asking price is on the Youngs town Servi-Center with sink? Im really I retested!
Thank you so much,
Would you happen to know about updates to the Youngstown Kitchen Cabinet Service Center? Started renovations on my Dad’s house and having a beer difficult time finding anyone to assist with his Youngstown Kitchen Cabinets. The link you have available, is no longer valid. I have searched until I am almost blue in the face. Thank You, Teresa
