I love wacky old stuff from the 60's and 70's.
Every time I go to Goodwill (you don't really want to know how often I go to Goodwill, do you? It's a lot...) I look for more of these little flowery suitcases, and train cases. I'm fairly picky. They have to be in good shape, and I won't pay more than $5 for them.
They're awesome for storing things in plain sight. These suitcases hold party supplies (candles, balloons, streamers,) and our seldom-used-in-Texas mittens, scarves, and hats. The train case holds crochet projects.
In a house without much built in storage, we have to get creative.
