If you are looking for an antique white bookcase it is best to seek out furniture restoration specialists. Another option is to buy a modern design and treat it with an antique finish. These finishes can be obtained in any craft store.
Oak is a good deal as it's a timber of particularly high quality and makes beautiful looking furniture. Solid oak should be used throughout the piece, even in the drawer bases and cabinet backs; these are the places where some manufactures might substitute veneers in an attempt to keep costs down. Quality pieces will facilitate dovetailed joints in the drawers, and when finished in a tough, hard-wearing lacquer such as a resilient satin for instance, this is a pretty tough piece of furniture sure to last generations.
A cube or shelf dedicated to favorite ornaments from your past is a great way to share holiday memories with small children without them being lost on a tree. Holiday decorations from different decades would make an interesting display-- a kind of "though the years with Grandma and Grandpa" or "when I was your age", type of display.
