    Where online can I buy audio cassette storage racks, cases, etc?

    I have been buying used audio cassettes for 25 cents at a cool local second-hand store (Urban Ore in Berkeley as seen on Mythbusters) and now I have a whole bunch of tapes that I need to organize.
    As this is not much of a new format, I'm not having much luck finding cases.
    I would like to store at least 100 tapes with cases.

    If you know of someplace that sells Minidisc storage that would be awesome too!
    Thanks!

    Here is a link to a place in Napa Valley that builds racks I am pretty sure will work. They sell on Ebay and should be close to you (?).

    Another thing is I use to use is auto part boxes. If you know anyone in the auto parts business the size of the boxes used to store the parts on the shelves are a perfect size. Of course the manufacturer will have a mix between their name, part type?, company colors & Logo. Sometimes that is cool. The storage would be standing on end in the boxes with the label upward. You can further categorize each box and write that on the box front. Usually there are printed lines to guide writing with.

    I just happen to use those in my file cabinet for storage of stuff :-) They are usually Outside 5" x 11" with inside when folded at 4-1/2" x 10-3/4". With a 1/2" spine that gives space for about a dozen cassettes. Worked great when going on a long cruise from Diego to Fresno or Phoenix :-) Plenty of listening and easy to pick and choose.

      I've found those Napa Valley cases, but they end up being like $40-$50 plus shipping and they are all used. So hopefully I can find one in a local thrift store.
      Maybe that wouldn't seem so expensive if I had paid more than 25 cents for each one wink

    I miss those old school cassette tape.  But even with the cassette tape, we can no longer buy one that work properly.  I bought a cassette player a while ago, "made in China" and it just ruin those old tapes I got sad

    I used to use shoeboxes, they came in a standard width that was more or less right for the tapes

      Good idea!  I found some cheap cardboard boxes at IKEA ($1.50 each) that hold 15 tapes pretty well so far.

      Cool. I looked at eBay before for those Napa Valley ones. I find it funny that they are used and from the 1990s! smile I found one going for less than $20 (plus shipping) so I bid! Next I need to get some Minidisc organizers!
