Milkcrate Cafe

Milkcrates, coffee and records go hand in hand like nothing else I can think of. In my fair city of Philadelphia, the Milkcrate Cafe is now open for business. The store is located at 400 E Girard Ave., Philadelphia, PA. Their blog is here –> Milkcrate Cafe blog

The Poem Shop


In NYC a group of writers has taken the writing to the streets and is offering a poem writing service.

The Poem Shop service was started by William Chrome and I love that the girl in the photo above is using a milkcrate as her typewriter stand. –> The Poem Shop via Adrian Shirk

Cheap wheels and a few milkcrates makes a nice cheap solution to expensive feed rollers that you’d buy at places like this for $329.99. –> via Toolmonger, A Cheap(-Ass) Saw Feed Roller

Kayak-ers Love Milkcrates


There is a link between the kayak people and the great milkcrate. I don’t yet have a in depth understanding of this relationship and I will someday soon. In the meantime, I’ll keep posting these pics that I find. Pics via Big Water’s Edge, Ocean Prowler 15
