Navy Cambridge Purse Storage Bin is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible Linen Purse Bin This purse bin is very flexible, it is wide enough in the back to hold large purses (such as a LV) and as you move towards the front, you can then store smaller purses. I was able to put my purses in their cloth storage bags to protect them and then graduate them towards the front. I stuffed some of the bags with tissue so they would stand up and be readily identifiable. I cannot recommend these bins highly enough if you want to protect and store your expensive purses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solution for bags and backpacks It's perfect for bags and I also use another one for backpacks. Very convenient!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strong Chemical Smell Like many reviewers below me, I opened the plastic wrapping to an overwhelming chemical strong coming off this box. Overall could be useful but have not used due to the smell. I tried to air it out with all the windows open but it’s been a week and the smell is still there. It smells like a nail salon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Useful product...unbearable smell My husband and I just purchased a new home. Rather than pay for a custom closet, I decided to look at other storage options mainly for my shoes and purses and I found these bins. They are so right in many ways, but all the positives are outweighed by the horrible chemical smell they emit. After airing them out for two weeks, I found that the smell has only moderatley diminished. These are by far the best and most attractive storage option for my handbags and while I would love to keep them, i think they'll be going back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smell is bad... I purchased these last week. I love them for my purse storage and they fit most of my bags (some totes were too wide). However, their smell has taken over my closet. It hasn’t gone away in about a week so I’m unsure if I should keep them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but terrible smell.... I love everything at container store. I am always satisfied with products I bought. This one, size and color are nice and I can put all my bags nicely but oh my god, some strong smell when I opened the bagl!! What is it? I don't know. I was just surprised. After few days, the smell has gone but I wish they can improve that part....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrid smell-unusable. I have used these in the past because they are the best storage ever. But last month I bought 6 and the smell is just awful. I let them “air” out in my living room for a week; set them in the sun; then decided to try them. Put them in the closet and when I open my doors I’m hit with the chemical smell. It had not disappeared in over a month. These are great but the smell is so bad you can’t use them. The old ones never stunk like this so I’m not sure what had happened. Find another storage alternative. I’m going to go to the store and see if they have other “non stinky” ones because the product itself is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great storage and decor option This is very well made. Holds enough purses to make it look nice and organized. Also adds a nice touch of decor to the closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I love this so much! It is nice to collapse when not in use and it is a great size for a large shelf. The only downside is the price, but if you use it enough, its worth it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad smell I love everything about these, but the smell is so bad! I will be returning them. I have set them outside for multiple days and it hasn’t helped at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These bins smell terrible These bins smell like they were manufactured in a tire facility. It must be the stong smell of the glue to hold the bins together. We "aired" the bins out in the garage for 3 days in hopes that the smell would go away. It did not. We attempted to keep them in our closet and have to return them because they make the whole bedroom smell. It is a strong chemical smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific! I love these grey purse storage bins! Three of them fit perfectly on the top shelf of my coat closet. Two of them hold several purses, and I use the third one for summer hats! So they are not only attractive but can be used for many different purposes. What's more, they fold flat for storage if needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1000% better These will make any closet look 1000 times better!!! You can hide all of your items, Boxes are well made and go well with the other linen items. My only regret is that I wished I purchased them in the grey that is their new color, but I have too many shoe boxes in the tan color so I am committed

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Perfect size, horrible smell 5 stars for style, size, and utility; reduction in stars for stinky smell. I bought a couple of these to store handbags that I use on a regular basis. The color is a very nice grey. The bins are pretty sturdy, and the size is perfect! Large enough to fit large totes for work and medium everyday bags. The thing that ruins this item for me is the smell. The smell reminds me of a mix of chemicals and new tire rubber smell. I pulled all of my bags out of the bins and let them air out, but 3 days later, the smell is still very strong on the bins. If the smell doesn't go away, I can't use these in my closet and I'll probably use these in my garage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roomy and attractive A salesperson showed this to me and I purchased one in the store. They're on sale now so I just ordered 8 online because they are so great: I'll be giving a few away as gifts. They hold a lot, look really nice, and I love the sloping accessible front. My friends will too!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Purse-fect Fit!!!! I love this item so much that I went back and purchased 2 more. They fit perfectly above my armoire. I put all of my purses in these beautiful containers and I even had room for my weekend bag that is quite flexible. All of my purse are in their bags to avoid dust. So, if you put your purse up there without a bag, then it might get dusty. Nonetheless, they are beautiful and keeps all of my purses in one place. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger than it looks I was nicely surprised at how large this was. It is spacious and fit my gym bag and other small bags in it. I like it because on the top closet shelf it hides the contents and gives a clean appearance. Because it is so deep, I wouldn't recommend it for narrow shelves. It hangs over my shelf edge a little because my top shelf is not that deep.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice, but puckering I really like the concept of this and use it as a filing system. However, it has started this weird puckering in numerous places. Debating whether to exchange it for another one...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for clutches and small totes I put this storage bin on the top of a wire shelf in the closet since I don't have a wood shelf. It holds many tote bags, clutches. The only thing is that since my shelf is high, I don't always see what's inside and that means I have to lower the entire bin. Would work nicer eye level or on top of low shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handbag storage Not only is it pretty, but its extremely easy to construct, fits multiple large handbags, has a spot to label the items inside and fits great on a closet shelf. I love it!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solution This organizer is perfect for the issue of my purses on the top shelf of the closet. Before I got these they were flung on the top in their dust covers. Now they are all neatly arranged. They are roomy and very versatile. I got my husband a couple so he can pack away his sweaters when it warms up and he even uses it for his baseball caps. Best purchase ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! If you are a serial purse buyer like me, this product is a must. I buy purses well before I wear old ones out, so I've developed quite the collection. I have three of these and they really help add some style to the growing mass of purses in my closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for big bags I recently bought two of these for my closet and I love the linen look. Ultra classy. I found my larger purses held up in it beautifully but I am still in search of a solution for my smaller purses since some are even to small to be seen from the lowered side of the bin, especially when on a shelf.
Date published: 2013-10-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but I needed something to hold my larger handbags and this does it. However, because the lower portion of the container (in fact the entire container) is opaque, it's a bit difficult to see exactly what I have especially now that they are perched on a shelf. I also wish there was a smaller one for my clutches.

What's the height of the front end of the bin?

There product dimensions say 12", but I believe that's just the back side.

Has the odor issue been resolved?

Asked by: cocox2
This should not be an issue. If they do come with a smell out of the packaging, we recommend allowing it to air out and that should resolve it.

Has the smell situation been resolved on this product? I want to order but not if they come with a strong chemical smell. I’m in Australia and would prefer not to have to return them.

Can you put two of these together to make a top and bottom?

I'm concerned that my things will get dusty without a cover.
Asked by: scochran
No because one would slip off of the other. You could put the items placed in the bin in plastic covers or bags. Mine bin is in a closed closet and dust has not been an issue.
