Inspiration: Vintage Storage

Small Space Solutions

We all love the Container Store, but sometimes the best solutions for storing your stuff is the tried and true. From old crates to apothecary jars to salvaged metal lockers, there's plenty of options out there to help keep you organized.

There's really no trick for vintage storage finds. Literally anything can work. Search flea markets, junk stores, garage sales, eBay, Etsy even our very own Marketplace!

Keep your eyes peeled for multiples (four old-timey mail crates are better than one) or objects with lots of compartments. It's a great way to sort things like tools or underwear. And don't pass something up just because its rusty and dusty. A little Formula 409 and some elbow grease goes a long way. Other than that, happy hunting! And organizing.
