This vintage-style fruit crate is yet another variation on our classic nested crate offering a unique way to store and display your items. Add nostalgia to your home with this piece of California, inspired by local fruit growers from years past with a 'CalCoast Vegetables' label on a natural crate. The old-fashioned fruit label adds character and interest to this classic crate. Pretty enough to dress up a space all on its own, and practical enough to be used for any number of storage purposes. The crate is durable, well crafted, and unlike actual vintage fruit crates, is clean and ready for storage.
Please note that these crates are sold as single individual crates, not as a set.
The approximate outside dimensions of this crate are: 11.75" L x 8.5" W x 4.5" H
on Main handmade Decorative Wood Crates are hand-crafted, from start to finish,
therefore the crates you receive may have a slight variance in size, color or
texture from what is shown in the photos. The bottoms are a plain wood color
plywood. Each crate is unique, and the natural features have been left
intact. These can be used as a decorative accessory any room in your house.
The crates can be used for: toiletries/cosmetics,
kitchen items (oils, towels, fruit, cooking utensils), plants & seeds,
laundry items, craft or office supplies, shadow box displays & more.
They can be hung on the wall, but only if you
place lightweight items inside (such as small plants, small picture frames or
knickknacks). Please note that these are sturdy but not designed to hold
very heavy objects.
care instructions: When you receive
and unpack your crates, be sure to wipe them down with a slightly damp cloth to
remove excess dust from packaging and shipping. Let the crates air dry
completely before putting any items into the crates. The crates have not been
sealed, so if you desire a smooth finish, you may wish to apply a clear coat of
paint or wood stain. As always, if using
to store fruits or vegetables make sure you wash them thoroughly before eating.
As with all our products this item was assembled and packaged by our job training program for adults with special needs.
