Brocade Magnetic Divided Bin
Cool for Copic Containment!!
I bought a few of these pieces a couple of years back when I got my Martha Stewart Crafting tables - I wanted something in white for my desk top, and these fit the bill perfectly! At that time, I got a few of the pencil cups, a divided bin, a couple of the big bins (for yarn and crochet supplies), and a file holder. Then I starting getting into drawing and coloring with Copic markers, and I wanted a storage system that would compliment my decor, AND allow me to organize the markers by color families. I racked my brain trying to come up with an answer, and while visiting The Container Store web site looking for options I ran across these again. I decided I needed to go into the store and see if an idea I had forming in my head would work. Boy howdy, did it ever!! I am so thrilled with the results - I've posted a few pictures so y'all can see how it is working out for me. I've got plenty of room to add to my marker collection, room to store my ink refills, and my outlining pens too! The magnets weren't quite strong enough to hold the entire thing together by themselves, so I did have to use some epoxy to get them to stay together in this formation, but it looks so nice on my desk top and is super functional - I LOVE IT!!

I bought this item as a desk set, along with the File Holder, Pen/Pencil cup & the Notepaper Holder, and it really POPS in our home office. Clean white and VERY classy looking!!!

Very Happy with this Purchase!
We have a small home with no office, so our refrigerator tends to be the place where important papers become cluttered. This bin is perfect for the side of our fridge where we now keep stray pens, important letters, bills to be paid, etc. It's exactly what we needed. The magnet is quite large and has held strongly no matter what I have placed in it so far. And it's very attractive, to boot!

Bringing Organization to My Desk!
I ordered several pieces of this Brocade line. I love it! I am able to organize the items on my desk and more importantly remember where everything is when I'm looking for it.
