Well, here's one great option.
This recipe box is from the very intriguingly-named shop, The Regional Assembly of Text, based in Vancouver, BC. This small boutique has an emphasis on text, books, and writing, as you might imagine, and their recipe box carries that quirky, bookish imprint.
It includes 12 dividers and 100 index cards to get you started on all those homemade recipes, and it fits standard 5” x 3” index cards as well. Size: 5 ½” x 3 ½” and 2 ½” deep.
We love the look and the price. It's only $28 -- not bad, considering how much these boxes can run. It's a lovely and practical gift (for someone else or... yourself. Ahem.).
