So, Asheville, North Carolina. We were up there visiting family this summer. I did a little exploring around our Holiday Inn and stubbled upon a roll of this wire around behind it. What does the hotel even use it for? I dunno.
Regardless, now it's a mail basket. Wire cutters were a must. I can throw my keys in it, or important papers I need to remember on the way out the door.
Best part: it cost me nothing! :D

i had an old black leather ballet shoe which i cut to the same size as a few antique dictionary page pieces. x-acto knives are MAGIC, y'all. i used a small jewelry ring to attach the little book to a chain i had on hand.
