Hi all. Trying to furnish home office with a vintage, refurbished steelcase (or similar) desk. Any ideas where to look in NJ? Did some searches, but not finding any local dealers.

THanks for any input.

Assume you have searched online and that the following dealers on NJ did not have what you are seeking?

Rockaway, NJ:
Refurbished Office Furniture NJ, Refurbished Steelcase Partitions, New Jersey

Cinnaminson, NJ, and NYC:
http://www.conklinoffice.com/search?...steelcase+desk

Regional locations/Furniture Finders
Used Office Furniture and Used Cubicles - Search at FurnitureFinders

Other alternatives might simply be to check with Salvation Army and other local thrift stores -- they can give you leads on who accepts donated office furniture.

OP here. Thanks for reply. Checked with those dealers and no luck. Looking for the classic "tanker" style desk with steel finish. Will check with Salvation Army.

Here's one that looks like it requires a little "elbow work" but the price might be negotiable- been for sale since August.

One more idea -- have you tried kijiji.com? That is the classified ad section of ebay.

Here is an example of their listings...

50's VINTAGE STEELCASE TANKER DESK w/ EAMES STYLE LEGS! - New York City Business Items For Sale - Kijiji New York City (http://newyork.kijiji.com/c-For-sale-Business-industrial-50s-VINTAGE-STEELCASE-TANKER-DESK-w-EAMES-STYLE-LEGS-W0QQAdIdZ151250817?mpch=ads - broken link)

I bet there is somebody somewhere that is trying to get rid of one, just a matter of finding them. I picked up some desks when a radio station was moving a while back, all free.

Hi Tommyrulz,
I just found this forum. I have a great old Steelcase tank that I've just decided to get rid of. Are you still looking for such a beast?
