Decorating with old crates

THE NEWEST TREND !!!! is decorating with old vintage crates, graphics, and advertisement, shabby, just about anything, pricey?  yes, in antique shops, they are getting $45.00 to $50.00 per crate, in flea markets, antique malls, and shops with a few vendors, cheaper, about $25.00  I visited a shop who houses about 15 vendors all  shabby chic painted furniture and all, their crates were $22.00  a big difference.  Personally I love them and use them, the minute  I get one it sells on Etsy.  The last one I sold was a cranberry crate from Cape Cod, it sold in five minutes, I haven't seen one like it again.
