What bins come with it? Each of the pictured bookcases has different bins, and neither matches the description.

And since I want to use it as a bookcase I don't want bins. Can I purchase it without them?
Asked by: djd1950
This item is sold by itself. Any bins pictured are for example only, and would need to be purchased seperately.

how far apart are the shelves, mainly the bottom two? I was thinking about buying this to replace several odd pieces in my craft room and if I can get my 12 x 12 scrapbook albums on one of those shelves I'm sold. Thank you:)
Asked by: clutteredcrafter
Mine are less that 12 Inches apart probably because they in centimeters, not inches. You can call the store and they will measure the floor models for you.

What Container Store bins and baskets work best with this shelf?

Asked by: SLS1208
I played around in the store prior to purchasing this unit and ended up selecting the Cottage Woven Bins. I found that on the bottom shelf I could stack the medium on top of an extra large, and put two of the small bins stacked beside it. On the second to bottom shelf I could stack two large, and again stack two small beside them. The middle shelf has space (or clearance) to stack a medium on top of an extra large (though they have to be turned sideways due to shelf depth). The 2nd to top shelf can handle the height of two of the small baskets stacked with room to spare. (And has room for an even smaller container beside it). The top shelf is more for nick knacks etc. Even with all these bins in use, there is some extra space on the shelves, but hopefully this will give you a basic idea of what it can hold.

How much weight can the shelves hold?

I am looking for something tall and narrow to store books. Are these shelves study enough to hold books?
Asked by: TheDoctor
The tiers of our Encore Narrow Bookshelves, from top to bottom, each have a capacity of 10 pounds, twenty pounds, twenty-five pounds, thirty-five pounds and forty pounds of static, evenly distributed weight.

The assembly instructions show how to secure the unit to the wall. Is this really necessary? Can't the unit stand on its own?

Asked by: Lefty1234
Securing our Encore Narrow Bookshelf to a wall is just a safety feature for environments with small children, in area prone to earthquakes, etc. The unit itself is completely freestanding and stable.
