Etsy Handmade Storage Bins

I love all things made by hand!
And I love Etsy for bins, boxes, baskets and totes.

Mostly everything in my home is handmade. And my clients love when I find unusual, functional and beautiful organizing options that are a bit unique.
Following are some wonderful storage bins and boxes to help contain your clutter:


This storage bag is made from 100% natural linen and has an inside waterproof lining. It is eco- friendly. Ideal to store toys, books, magazines, crafting supplies and (dare I say-laundry?) anywhere in the house, in your car or take it to the beach or a barbeque. The measurement is approx. 10"X14".

So beautiful. Made with a light blue chambray 80% organic cotton/ 20% linen exterior, lined with natural 100% cotton canvas. It has dark brown leather handles attached with antique brass rivets. Hand printed with gray water based pigment. Measures approximately 9" high and 12" in diameter.
The fabric was hand screen printed in their textile studio and the pattern is an original illustration hand drawn by Jenna Fenwick. It is a great catch-all, especially for carrying and storing needlework projects and such.

  1. I have too much clutter to store, but when I get it under control, these solutions look great. I'm thinking etsy might be a good way to get rid of some "clutter" too -- my vintage stuff might not be clutter to someone else. Thanks for the reminder on etsy! -- Sandy

    Thank you Sandy for writing about and sharing a problem that is more common than many know! Etsy may be a great venue for you. I feel really good when I donate to my favorite charities...
