Here are a few of my storage options for crochet-related things...
Nifty fifties "pony tail" pencil case - no pencils, just my trusty crochet hooks.
Old-timey folding yarn/knitting basket (or magazine holder) - and yes, it IS overflowing!
Wee woven sewing basket... gee, I really need to finish those projects!
So, do tell - how do you use vintage for storage?
