Crates are Great!
Merchantville Antiques and Salvage offered another "Inspirational Tuesday" post on their Facebook page all about old crates, boxes, and drawers. Co-owner Jaclyn Ricci's personal favorites are the cheese boxes used as a chalk holder for the chalkboard wall in the kitchen and for small tools on her husband's work bench. These unique boxes and crates can be filled with plants, hang on walls for a shadow box effect, or used as storage bins. Merchantville's antique store also has a booth - A14 - at the antique and arts mall, Carnival of Collectibles, in Sicklerville, NJ. Pinterest has nothing on Jaclyn so, stop by the shop - open Wednesday thru Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. - at 27 N. Centre Street, or their booth for some great ideas.
