Great thrifty find

I was trolling for cheap books at the thrift shops yesterday.

Great thrifty find, originally uploaded by jckirner.

I put it back 3 times before admitting I'd enjoy having this. The price was a bit steep -- $5.99!

I love the color and graphics and chromed metal hardware.

Sure, it has condition problems - the plastic has cracked, yellowed and gone brittle in places. I'm pleased the metal exterior is in great shape. The latches, clasp and handles are indestructible!

I'll use it as a storage bin for art supplies. Perfect for paints/dyes.
