Shop Worth Knowing: Three Potato Four

bread tin

Looking for storage options with character? Take a look at Three Potato Four! I found this site through The Haystack Needle, and I'm so grateful to Jen for the pointer. Note that vintage items will sell out - and others may, too - so the specific pieces listed here may not be available later. But there will probably be new wonderful things to admire. I'm just trying to give you an idea of the range of things available. I've been having a wonderful doing some virtual window shopping.

The item above is a vintage Hovis bread tin, size small - there's a larger one available, too.

burlap bucket

Another option are the burlap buckets from Mayamade - each one is "re-purposed from a recycled (fair trade) coffee sack." (Maya also has an Etsy shop, but every time I look, there are no buckets in stock.)

ruler box

I'm very fond of this vintage hardware store yardstick tray organizer, which seems to be a one-of-a-kind item.

There are also a few different old wooden salt codfish boxes.

elephant stapler

For a change of pace, here's a wooden elephant stapler from the 1960s.

And moving beyond containers, the apple coathangers, in three different colors, are another organizing option.
