I have a wonderful friend that thought of me when she saw this vintage metal medicine cabinet at a yard sale a few months back. I love it so much and now use it to hold two of my favorite collections-my best comics books and my Steiff collection. My grandmother, originally from Germany would make yearly trips back and often purchase a Steiff while there. The year I went with her I picked out the lamb. I love having such a nice case to display as well as protect a collection I have loved since I was a child :)
