Flea Market Find #004: Turn-of-the-Century Uncle Sam Wine Box

Turn-of-the-Century Uncle Sam Wine Box

Found at the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market: I’m always on the lookout for cool storage options with great graphics, so this turn-of-the-century Uncle Sam wooden wine box got my blood racing when I spotted it on a dealer’s table. I tried to be discreet about my excitement, and even walked away for about 15 minutes to seem disinterested, so that when I returned I was able to talk the seller into a nice discount. But I would’ve paid full asking price without hesitating.

I cleaned this up and set in on my desk as an inbox for bills and magazines.
