flea market finds - organizers

Clever is the vendor 
who shows how to use an item 

I am not sure what these were meant to hold 
but 
showing them as potential organizers for 
scissors, 
markers, 
plastic and silverware
 is a clever move  

Anyone 
who has worked in marketing 
or 
advertising 
will tell you 
buyers 
need to be shown 
what an item does/cando 
so they realize 
they need it

The vendor here is the same as the one selling the buddhas

  1. makes me wonder what the original use was = but little bunches of flowers would be sweet in one! The distressed look is so trendy now

  4. I too like the distressed paint. I'd have bought one.

  5. I think they'd make good herb planters too. Not that I grow herbs. But someone must.

    Very nice.

    BTW if this guy sells personal organizers who come and make your home wonderfully uncluttered, I'd like to purchase six.

  6. I'm wondering if the vendor does his own distressing or if it comes like that?? Since his other items seem to have the same paint effect...I would have bought one as well if the price was right...

  7. I'd have bought one too -- I like them and would have found plenty of fun uses.

  10. If I had an actual desk (instead of a corner of the dining room table) I would totally want one of those!
