it's all about repurposing. i've never met something "old" that i didn't love and imagine as something different.
a vintage gum rack holds punches and pens. a chip rack from a gas station of days gone by holds new items.
a milk glass collection holds various embellishments. suitcases hold mini albums. locker baskets hold books, a greeting card display holds letterpress cards, and a notions case holds small embellishments.
i have gotten all of my scrap room organization from flea markets and estate sales.
