on the hunt for my perfect bread box

after last weekend’s lovely farmer’s market find of fresh bread… i found myself asking myself [and my baking connoisseur roommate] how to store this delectable good.  my mother always stores her loaves the fridge.  in the past i have always just twisty-tied it up and left it on the counter.  DUH – someone must have grappled with this question earlier on in history, and out came the invention of the BREAD BOX.

because I plan on continuing to patron the wonderful farmer’s markets around town and also plan to continue to indulge in wonderful hand-made loaf-deliciousness…

and because these things are just too dang cute not to have in one’s kitchen…

i thought maybe i’d start my hunt for my perfect bread box

here are some beauties i’ve come across… what do you think??

old timey with a roll top

industrial style

lunchpail look-alike

flash of feminine

… and this goes without saying because you’re all smarty-pantses who can figure it out, but not only are these guys great for bread, since they’re so homey and beautiful you could use them to decorate with the additional storage bonus for tucking away little trinkets you don’t want cluttering up your space!
