While salivating over just about every single item on the website, I came across this:
What in the WHAT?
I completely understand the utility of these crates. I myself have one in the trunk of my car, corralling jumper cables and the like. I’ve used them for files, for laundry, and even as makeshift picnic baskets. They’re strong and easy to carry. Win-win.
What confuses me is the “authentic” part. Yes, I get that these crates are “authentic” in the Pottery Barn hipster sort of way. I still find the word completely superfluous.
“A dairy crate? I don’t understand. What is that?”
“Oh, an AUTHENTIC dairy crate. Now I know EXACTLY what you mean!”
Seriously, though, at $8 on sale these things are a deal. Stock up. And then stack up. (And then stop booing my humor. We all have our moments of weakness.)
