Got milk?


Hello everyone!

Are you familiar with the online company called Wuslu?  Once you sign up with them, they send you an email for a "deal of the day" every day.  You can purchase it that day unless it sells out.  Some of their items are mass produced and others are one of a kind.  I was able to purchase this old milk crate from the 1940's from their site. 


I placed it on top of my pot rack in my kitchen.  It adds to that industrial feel that I have going on in there. 




You can see the inscription of the dairy farm it came from.  It is very heavy too.


The inside is filled with wire cubbies that once held the milk bottles.




So, if you decide to buy something that is really old and one of a kind from Wuslu, act fast.  These  sold out quickly!  They may offer them again though.

Now, I just wish these milk crates would make a come back WITH the milk service too!  I grew up having milk delivered to my house and it must've been wonderful for my mom to not have to go out and grab milk at the store all the time.  I can't tell you how many trips I have to make to keep our fridge stocked!  Ha!

Thanks for stopping by!

That is a great find! I really like it--I collect the milk bottles.

We got our milk delivered to our door as well. Sealtest. We had a silver insulated box on the porch that the milkman left the milk in. He also lived across the street so if we ever ran out of something--it was right there! :)

Thanks so much for the info on the site. I'll have a look.

Love how the milk box looks on your to rack.

I get their emails and love the stuff they have.
I remember milk being delivered too but ours came in a metal crate...gone are those days of service, but they say history repeats itself so maybe...

Hi, Kelly....I grew up with home milk delivery and also, when my kids were babies, the milk was delivered. I wish I had asked our milk guy for one of these crates....he probably would have given me one. Never gave it a thought.
Your's is so cute....

Amy Kinser said...

Love that milk crate. I have a similiar and have it filled with old white linens.

I will have to check out this shopping site. Thanks.

Hi Kelly. I thought I had commented on this post but I don't see it.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. No it wasn't the tree trimmer that died. He worked for the county BUT that same one that left the card in our door returned. He is going to do the work for us......but he just called and didn't act like he had been here.....gets stranger as it goes on. But I do know that my husband isn't going to do the trimming after that accident.
