With Halloween coming so soon, I thought I'd take you on a tour of some Halloween-themed containers and other organizing-related items. I'm enchanted by the wood boxes by stregheria, from Bergamo, Italy - and available on Etsy. But each one is one-of-a-kind, so this one might not be available for long.
Over on CafePress, you can get this keepsake box.
And this keepsake box doesn't have a Halloween theme, but rather the Day of the Dead. Update on Oct. 13, 2009: Unfortunately, Tascha doesn't seem to be selling boxes any more, either on CafePress or Etsy.
Patricia's Pots sells this Halloween-themed pail. Update on Sept. 26, 2012: This website is no longer selling painted pots.
This pumpkin paper mache candy container is an unusual item that appealed to me. Update on Oct. 13, 2009: This isn't available any more.
For something very different, how about these glow-in-the-dark monster magnets from NuitBlanche, on Etsy? Artist Caroline Gaedechens says you can also buy them from druck dealer in Hamburg. [via Rare Bird Finds] Update on Oct. 13, 2009: Sadly, these are no longer available on Etsy; I have no way of knowing if druck dealer still has them.
And finally, here's the only expensive item in the bunch - the Limoges Halloween boxes, this one being just one of many.
