How much are you willing to pay for a crate? The answer is probably dependent on how nice of a crate we're talking about. I recently found a reasonably nice (free) one in a neighbor's garage, for example, but it must not be nearly as high quality as The Crate. This particular crate was "designed" by Jasper Morrison and is made out of Douglas Fir. The primary advantage of this crate over, say, one found at the back of a garage, is that this one is in pristine condition and has not been marred by use. That said, is it really worth $175?
