For firewood, magazines, orange trees ... $69-$129 depending on size. Compare to Mecox's:
for $315-$425, or Garrison Rousseau's (can't find a direct link but had to mention as I'm desperately envious of that name). He customizes 'em with copper liners for the likes of Tory Burch.
This is one case where the look for less doesn't look too much, er, less.
