Saw this on timholtz.com and checked and found the "suggested retail" price $50-$60, and suspected it might be overpriced with Tim's designer signature on it. When I saw it on Overstock for less and compared it to the prices of the usual plastic storage units of a similar design, decided to "spring for it" as it does have leather handles. Turns out the leather handles and closures are the best part of the made-in-China case as the light wood construction is basically covered with a designer paper clearly meant to be "grunged" by the buyer. Don't know if I'll go to the trouble of decorating it with Tim's distressed inks. The case, although niclely packaged by Overstock, arrived with some small dings and dents in the paper covering. When I fill this up, I think I'll look for a true 1930s made-in-the-USA suitcase at the flea market to revive. Suggest you save some $ and do the same if you're looking to store your ink and stamps in a vintage case.

I am every happy with my purchase of the Advantus Idea-Ology Paperboard Storage Toolbox with Three Compartments. It fits all my Tim Holtz Ink's and all the Goodies that go along with Inking my projects! I am so happy I purchased it! Overstock had the Best Price too.

I like this case, however I think it could be better constructed, more useful if done a little different, it opens kinda awkward but all in all its a nice case. I love all of Tim Holtz products actually. So I thought this would be great to hold allot of my inks and things. Thats about all I got to say about this
