Brit and Pieces

Brit and Pieces
Brit over at Sisters Friday found this interesting item at a yardsale and later learned that it was used to organize typeface letters for a printing press! One cannot deny it’s organizational usefulness, so she stayed true to its history and uses it to organize her crafting supplies. 
 All the colorful little boxes within were made by modge podging fabric to makeshift cardboard boxes. 
I have decided that I need one! Not sure what I would put in it, since I am hardly what you’d call crafty. Socks maybe? Who knows? What would you use it for?

    Brilliant! I love it. I think you could use it for socks, or pens and pencils or sewing supplies. I’d use it for my crafty daughter’s craft supplies!

    I could use one of those too! How clever and yet simple! Love the sign!

    Shoes! It looks like it could fit shoes… put it in your mud room for those odd bits of stuff that come home. But what a score!

    What a great way to store things 🙂 I just love it. I’ll have to keep my eyes out for one of these too!!

    That’s really cute. My parents have something like that at home that they almost threw away but then realized I’d want it. It’s waiting there for me and I’m going to make a display of my rock collection. I’d use it for crafts, but I don’t do crafts that often (although I should since I own so much stuff).

    Holy Crap! My MIL is bringing me two of these thingys in a few days when they come to visit and now I know what to do with them! Thanks!

    (Sorry about all the exclamation points!)

    I would fill it with unmatched socks, kind of like eharmony for lonely footware.

    This could be used to display a souvenir shot-glass collection 🙂
