Default Looking for: Plastic Bin Ribbon Storage

I had seen a system of plastic bins for ribbon storage and cannot find it now when I need it. The was a purchased system, not DIY. I think each stackable plastic bin was about $15. I don't see what I'm looking for on Amazon or eBay. I think it was from a specialty storage site. These did not use dowels, so you could pull the spools out easily. Does anyone know what site I'm talking about?

I know someone that uses stacking boxes for her ribbons that connect which were purchased at Wal Mart or Michaels.

Lauren Meader has some nifty bins here:
My Crafty Corner! - My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence
Her pics of ribbon are about 3/4 of the way down the page.
And they come from here:

I have five of these I would sell and ship to you. PM me if you might be interested.

I also tried the following: Ribbon - Spool & Store - Products

I still use the tool to roll the ribbons. My issue with changing to this system completely was that I had rolls of ribbon and then ribbons I purchased from shares.

I used the Container Store boxes storing by color, rolling the shorter pieces of ribbon and combining with the ribbon still on rolls (spools). I'm not using them any longer as I freed up some space in the smallest bins (drawers) in my Scrapbox WorkBox.

I'm always 'ribbon storage' challenged - I've tried a number of systems with varied success/failure.

Thanks for posting this system, Diane, it looks convenient and easy peasy

These are what I use, although I don't stack them. I mounted narrow shelves in the corner of my craft room -- just high enough for the boxes to fit. I had gotten the boxes at Michaels, but I don't think they carry them any more. I'm happy to see that someone has them because they work really well for most of my ribbon.
