My wife and I paid our monthly visit to our favorite Japanese resale shop on Rizal Avenue in downtown Manila ("the armpit of the city", as one poet-friend picturesquely calls it), and I found a couple of very nice wooden boxes (selling for about $3-$5) which I've repurposed for my pens and inks:

The second box came with built-in dividers so it seemed a natural home for inks:

Not bad for less than $10, plus the pen tray, one of which I still thankfully had lying around.

Beautiful boxes, can't quite make out the shape of the ink box but very attractive. And the price is amazing... enjoy!
