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!
