Sporting a retro, industrial look, the Swim Locker Basket is an attractive, durable storage solution. Originally designed for gym and pool lockers, the steel woven basket is a great way to clean up those piles of mail, files, toys, and pet toys you have lying around.

The Museum of Useful Things sells the Small Swim Locker Basket (8.5″w x 12.5″ d x 8″ h) for $20. They also sell a Large Swim Locker Basket (12″w x 12.5″d x 8″h) for $24.

While we’ve seen similar vintage baskets at the Alameda Antique Faire, they’re usually rusty and have broken wires.
