Good Product at a Good Price First let me confirm that it doesn't come with a liner bag. Not that I wanted one but someone mentioned it. I bought this to replace a virtually identical hamper which was still going strong but was a little torn up from kittens playing king of the hill atop it. I'm quite sure that it was from the same manufacturer. Does BB&B read this? I hope so because there is one small but very significant deficiency in this product. It has no legs or footings of any sort. The unpainted pressed wood bottom sits flat on the ground. On the prior hamper, the one that I said was virtually identical, what they did there was they had the four corner frame posts which are a plastic extrusion extend beyond the bottom about 3/8". No actual feet...just the extrusions are a bit longer. It can't cost them more than a penny or two of extra plastic. BB&B, you should really talk to them about this. It's important. Hampers are often in bathrooms or in the laundry, both places where the floor can be wet. I don't think my old one would have held up 20+ years if it had been sitting in a puddle of water periodically. I went straight from BB&B to a home center and bought some little plastic feet to screw on and I would recommend that to anyone buying this. January 23, 2012
Sturdy and Light--but no bag liner Went out to buy this yesterday. However, contrary to what the first review stated, there were no bag liners in any of these at the BBB store. It would be nice if they had one included, or offered one to buy. The bottom of this hamper is a hard wooded-cardboard material, so it won't last long if it gets wet. August 25, 2011
Perfect size This is the perfect hamper. It looks terrific, is light weight, fits nicely in small bathrooms or bedrooms, and has a bag liner so one can take the bag straight to the laundry room. The color options go with most interior design situations. It would be nice to be able to buy it in black as well. July 13, 2011
