While hunting on Ebay I stumbled upon this wooden beer crate. I like old crates as means of storage in and around the house, but you can also sit on them or use one as a side table. The old American crates are nice because of the typical branding and signage. This typical one caught my eye because has clearly been in use, but it is in a good state.
The Hamm's brand is also interesting. Not only does this brand come from St. Paul, Minnesota, it also has some history. During Prohibition the brand survived by producing soft drinks and food products. Typical is the fact that Hamm's is more famous for its jingle and mascot than their beverages.
