Crates on the Wall Bench


Charlie Vinz in Chicago built this cool cantilevered milk-crate bench with a hinged wooden top for storage on his bedroom wall. It’s pretty raw and to the point – which is why I love it. via–>South 12th, Oct 21st


Metal people in crates


Chi-town loves the street performers. This metal man style guy has a helper (ok, a mannequin) who is also painted in metal. Anyway, silly story about the whole scene – and of course, a milkcrate is involved. See full story here.


Chicago street musician

I spent last week in Chicago. Almost all the street musicians, and pan handlers rock the milkcrates. This gentleman near the Niketown store, had a sweet milkcrate set up, and some crazy patent leather kicks.
