Vintage padlock, by Atlas. Nothing makes a storage unit more interesting that a big, tough looking lock. Nothing is more interesting to a storage enthusiast than a cool, vintage padlock.

Cheese Storage Bag. You had us at Cheese. While most blocks of cheese don’t make it very long in my household thanks to a rapacious appetite, it’s always very disappointing to lose a good chunk of cheese to the ravages of refrigerator atmosphere.

As they say in the siding industry, “Vinyl is Final” referring to the ever lasting quality and low maintenance of vinyl siding.

Made of durable steel and walnut, NinthStreetGarage offers this record holder that holds up to 50 records. At $130, it’s a great gift, and displays much nicer than egg crates.
Born out of the industrial revolution was stackable technology. Bring the 19th century to your outdoor patio set, and start saving space. Check out Overstock for the Jardin Outdoor Chair (set of 4). They look so great in storage, you’ll just keep them there.
