I purchased these as gifts and depending on the person who received the gift are being used in a variety of ways. One person uses one of these to hold toiletries, another uses one of these to hold mail and another uses one of these to hold decorative assessories.
I bought several of these for personal use and have them in my bathroom holding handtowels and toiletries, in my foyer holding keys and mail and in my kitchen filled with fruit. They are useful and attractive. Can't go wrong!
