    These vintage wooden crates are salvaged from apple orchards in France. They are handy for storing fruit, vegetables, records, CDs and just about anything else you can think of that would look good in authentic rustic crates. An old wooden crate has real character so can also be a useful prop for industrial, agricultural or urban themed events and cafes. They are also popular lined and used outside as planters or for storing garden tools in a shed.  For more ideas, please see our vintage crate gallery.

    All of these crates are well worn.  If you are looking to buy crates that are cleaner and stronger, then our wooden storage boxes are another option worth considering.

    As these are used crates from French orchards, they are all showing their age and most of them no longer have printing on them.  However, we do separate out the best from the rest, and we classifiy the best as 'checked'.  These checked crates shouldn't have any important bits missing and will be stronger than the unchecked crates.  They will still be worn and rough, but they will be the best we have available.  However, they may still need strengthening if you intend to use them for anything very demanding.  The remaining crates we classify as 'unchecked'.  These may have a broken or misssing slat and will be less robust.  The unchecked crates are ideal for window displays and for use as props.

    The crates are typically 55 x 37 x 30cm, but dimensions vary slightly as they are all genuine used fruit bushel boxes.

    1 unchecked crate £14
    3 unchecked crates £35
    1 checked crate £18 - out of stock
    3 checked crates £50 - out of stock

    Knowing how to store fruit and vegetables is an important skill that we should all seek to acquire. Anyone who has a plum tree or grows runner beans will know what I mean. Once they are ready for picking, they come faster than you can possibly consume them!

    These crates are ideal for apples and pears. Store only perfect specimens (what they say about one bad apple is true), wrap them in paper and place gently in the crate. Store somewhere that is cool and frost free. If you need more advice, Piers Warren's book How to Store Your Garden Produce is well worth a look.
