Having trays scattered throughout the house is a great way to contain odds and ends and special items you want to display. There are many different styles and sizes to choose from. You can keep them on your nightstand, coffee table, kitchen table, or entry way. They add order and a bit of style to what might otherwise be a chaotic mess of just "stuff" laying around.
I found these on line via kmart, erin condren, ralph lauren, lotus bleu, west elm, z gallerie. Local options where you can find great trays: fowler & moore, fringe, waterleaf, gum tree, reaney design co., erin condren
