One of the items that I use almost daily today which I wish I had bought more back in Jakarta, Indonesia where I used to live, is tin boxes. Tin boxes are great for storage and I have them in many different rooms in my current home in Mumbai, India.
These dotted tin boxes in the two photos above and below are my favorite tin boxes which I purchased at Cayenne. I have written about Cayenne in August, 2010 HERE.
There are many stores in Jakarta where you can find tin boxes. Cayenne in Kemang Selatan in Jakarta used to have a variety of tin boxes like these when I still lived in Jakarta. I don’t know if they still carry them any more as they seem to have changed their featured items at the store. I have checked Cayenne’s Instagram account which has many beautiful items that they sell at the store. I was drooling over all the beautiful items at Cayenne and I would love to go to Cayenne right now and shop!
Below are all the tin boxes I bought at Pasar Mayestik in Jakarta (except for the one at the very end). I will post (It’s on the blog. Please click on the name.) the information about the shop “Gatara Bali” where my stylish Japanese friend took me back in May, 2013 in the next post . I took photos then, but I never had a chance to write about the shop as the move came and then I got busy transitioning.
You might laugh that we still have MD’s from 1990’s and we listen to them. This tin box is handy for their storage in the kitchen.
Tin boxes can be a great solution to tidy up a work space where it tends to collect clutter.
This one below was a gift from my friend, so I did not buy it at Pasar Mayestik myself, but I did see boxes in the same size.
I used to have this same box in my son’s nursery when we lived in Jakarta. I kept some wipes and diaper rash cream in the tin box. If you click on the photo, you can jump to the post about the baby boy nursery I had in Jakarta, Indonesia.
There are links above as well, but if you haven’t clicked and still are interested in reading about the shop “Gatara Bali” in Pasar Mayestik where I bought tin boxes in Jakarta, Indonesia, please click HERE. I hope you enjoyed this post!
