Okay . . . I bought the tins and the wooden cubby hole thing they came in on clearance at Roberts (which is a local craft store that is the retail branch of Provo Craft). Sadly, they do not carry them any more. I have been asked about those more than once, so I will continue to search for a source for them (I have been all over the 'net . . . haven't found 'em yet, but I'm sure they are out there SOMEwhere!)!

As for the baskets in the February Stampin' Success . . . I called my friend, Kim Jackson, who is a Sr. Editor at SU (she works a TON on producing Stampin' Success). She said that those baskets have been around for quite a while. They either came from Ikea or Pottery Barn. As most retailers rotate/change their inventory from season to season, you may not be able to find the EXACT basket, but I found some close ones in the links below (I use the baskets like the ones from the Ikea link . . . they fit perfectly in the bottom shelf of my stamp cupboard - which I also bought at Ikea).

http://www.potterybarn.com/shop/acce...%5Fsrc=oldlink

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10087738

You can get those little tags (the circular ones that labeled the baskets) at most craft/scrapbook stores. You can even make your own with this tagmaker (made my Making Memories):

http://www.createforless.com/Making+...utm_medium=cse

I am attaching a few up-close photos I took of the tins, so at least you would know WHAT they look like when you are shopping!

Hope this is helpful to ya!! Let me know if you have any more questions!!

OOh, I can help! The cubby storage is also known as Magpie Storage. I found it on overstock.com:
http://www.overstock.com/Crafts-Sewi...6/product.html

It comes in a couple colors, and the tins do, too! A few of my friends use them to store copics!

Here is another link that has several options of places to buy, as well as places to buy just the tins . . . didn't realize Quickutz was the manufacturer . . . good to know . . .

It looks like all the "magpie" storage systems come WITHOUT the tins included. Just make sure you order the tins as well as the storage box if you want both . . . otherwise you will end up with an empty box!!

Yep, they were at my Big Lots too. I was there last week and they still had plenty of black and a few white ones. I got 2 for $9 each. They are perfect to store all kinds of stuff and one is specifically for my Copic markers.

I think I saw them and the tins on Amazon.com as well.

If you Big Lots has these, RUN~ I just got 4 more at 90% off, so they were $3 each.

Woo hoo! I love a good deal.

Dang!! I missed that altogether!!! I may just have to go make a visit to the local Big Lots (although it looks as if I may be a day late - or more - and a dollar short!)!!

I went and looked at my BL and couldn't find them. Do you know what section they were in?

TIA
