I have a 1949 Youngstown Kitchen( Serial # 15-A 71546) complete with Beauty Queen Sink and am looking for someone to give me an idea as what price to ask when selling it. It has 3 double door upper and lower cabinets, 2 single door upper and lower cabinets, sink with double door lower cabinet. The sink unit has 2 drawers on either side. 7 drawers in total. Also there are 2 corner open shelving units. It is in mint condition with original chrome hardware. Help!!!

Have you checked on Ebay? They are always coming up on Ebay for sale. They also have other brands such as GE and St Charles. They all seem to be pretty much in the same price range depending on how many you have. But watch the "mint conditon" statement you made. Mint means like they just came out of the box or were not used. Most 50year old metalcabinets look very used ,hopefully not dented and has anywhere from light rust to severe rust. If there are no noticeable dents they can be refinished nicely. Preferably with a baked on finish from a powder coater or an automotive paint place. If there is severe rust (especially the floor of the sink base cabinet) it means that some of the metal has actually been eaten making the surface very rough or may even have holes which can't be filled. If yours are in "good" condition -- someone out there will definetly want them and will pay for the shipping. Good luck!

I'm interested in the hardware associated with your kitchen cabinet doors. Specifically my doors are held on by metal "bullets" that are spring loaded and pop into place on the top and bottom of the doors. You'd never know they were spring loaded unless you took the doors off as we did. I'm in need of 5 of these spring loaded hinge bullets and springs.

PLS email if you have such items.
