I have had my eye on the Magpie tins for quite a while at my local scrapbook store. They sell the set of 3 tins for $9.99. Imagine my surprise when I saw this incredible deal at Scrapbook.com... Three sets of Magpie tins and the wooden storage shelf, for the price of three sets at my local scrapbook store! I had three quickutz binders full of dies, and all of the dies fit into the nine magpie tins. I guess it is made to sit on your table, as there are no wall hangers included. That is easy fixed with a trip to my hardware store. This is a great deal!
Edited to add: I know why there is no mounting hardware. It is pretty heavy when the tins are totally filled with the dies. I think you can still hang it, but you will need anchors to hold it.
I already own one of these and love the ability to organize. If I take them to a crop, I simply take the tins I want and put a rubberband around them (so they don't open in transit). The cabinet is solid and beautiful- it looks like a piece of furniture. I once read that another great way to use these tins is puttin the lid on the bottom, so you have a deep little organizing tin for other embellishments. At this price, I may just buy my second system and do that! I paid $30.00 just for the cabinet at my LSS, and that didn't include the tins! An FYI, it matches beautifully with the Making Memories Carousel & embellishment center as well!
