Let's start the new year with something fun: containers designed to look like other things. I'll start with the Desktop Dumpsters from Steelplant. You can get one-of-a-kind hand-painted dumpsters, or blank ones you can customize yourself. Not inexpensive, but certainly innovative. [via MoCo Loco]
I'm also intrigued by the ceramic Cargo Containers designed by Daniel Ballou and produced by Areaware. They come in sets of two; the orange and gray are no longer available from Areaware, but you can still get the blue and white. And these are much more affordable than the dumpsters!
And finally, here's a mini shopping cart! It reminds me of the shopping-cart-shaped fruit basket I mentioned in an earlier post, but it's much smaller. Over on Amazon.com, someone mentions using it to gather receipts.
