Glass display case???

Anyone know where you can find a long glass display case like they have at baseball card shops. Like the retail cases at stores for jewelry and at bike shops, etc. Used is ok, just not beat up. I want to display some stuff (collectibles) in my basement and I think that one of these would be perfect. I am going to call a few card shops today and see if they have any for sale. Just trying to find one at a good price.

A curio cabinet would give it an extra touch of class.

They sell a couple pretty nice glass cases at Ikea for about $60 I think, but they are tall cases as opposed to the long--low type you mentioned. I think they're like 4 or 5 shelves tall with each onebeing about a square foot or so.

When i opened my store in Cicero i needed the same cases you want but they were BIG $$$$!!!!

A friend of mine told me to keep an eye open in the paper for Stores that are going out of business. Sure enough i called and went by an old jewelry store and scored BIG time for little $$!!

They are out there if you look locally. Since the second store open i purchased new ones from a distributer in Indiana. Shipped right to the store and pretty reasonable. If you want i can try to find their info. They are roughly a G note for a lighted, locking, 4' case though.......
