Do you have a crock that you don’t know what to do with? Did you recently inherit one and it needs a home but it might not fit your decor?
1. Trash can – Crocks are great for this job – there is No way it’s going to tip over. Also, just about any plastic bag will fit. Think about it: bathroom, laundry room, outside, garage, kitchen, the places are endless.
2. Dog Food storage – Have a crock 8 gallon or larger? Crocks are a great place to store the food. The crock is cool, dry, and can usually hold those large bags. Need a cover? No worries find a round table top or make one your self. Often times you can even find wooden lids in antique shops or advertised on the RWCS Website. Call the RWCS Office, we have a member that makes them custom.
3. Storage for Well everything -
- potatoes and onions need a cool, dry, in the dark place: With just a small round lid a 2-4 gallon crock makes a great place and they can be stacked up.
- magazines: have magazines around you don’t want to get rid of, tuck them in a crock
- blankets, luggage, winter clothes, etc: Large Red Wing Crocks are great for storing bulky items. I have heard of members using them to hold garden tools too!
4. Furniture – Yes consider a nice piece of wood or marble cut as a top of a crock and they make great end tables. Have a few? consider a shelf. And for the serious collector check out this dinning set!
5. Planter – Crocks make great planters. Make sure you put a plastic liner in and you are good to go. Crock to deep? Put a space filling plastic bucket in the bottom upside down. Then fit your liner piece to the top.
I am sure there are other ways to re-purpose at Red Wing Crock. So before you sell, donate, or give it away consider these other uses. Have an idea to use a crock – post it here.
