I got my Hoosier Cabinet a couple months ago, from a couple who were moving and downsizing. My husband and I have added the spice carousel. He has bought the parts to make the Tambour doors, which are missing. I can’t wait to decorate it for Christmas.

This Sellers Hoosier cabinet was owned by my paternal grandmother in the 1920’s in Oak Park, IL and was passed down to my parents in the 1970’s in Riverside, IL. It has all original hardware, though no longer has the roll top or flour bin. It had been painted various colors over the years, but was stripped and restored to white, which is the color I recall it being in my grandmother’s kitchen.

I am currently looking for a historical site in which to donate this gem.

My cabinet belonged to my grandmother. It was sold in an estate sale after both my grandparents died… probably around 1939. This past winter our family was asked by the buyers family of we would like it back. I paid him 100.00 canadian. It was in rough shape but I totally enjoyed bringing it back to life. It’s a treasure!

I recently purchased this cabinet from a buy/ sell site on Facebook. They are really hard to find in our area and I was so excited to be the new owner! It does need some repair but the frame seems to be in really good condition. The boards on the back of it seem to have the most damage. The grocery list is in excellent condition but the other labels are so dark and torn that you can’t really read them. Most of the hardware is there but it’s missing the flour bin. I will be on the hunt for a place to buy the replacement components. I believe it is a Napanee Dutch Cabinet 1917 Model J. The Napanee label is still on it and in great condition.

I acquired my Hoosier cabinet in 1985 from my maternal grandmother’s estate. It is a Napanee cabinet made in Nappanee, IN. It was never stored and was only moved once from her farmhouse into town. Everything is original, including flour bin, bread drawer, pull out shelf, and flatware divider. Everything on the inside of cupboard doors are intact and in excellent condition. The bottom part can be pulled to expand the porcelain top. We had the original finish striped and refinished it.We love it and use it as extra cupboard space.
