Store kitchen items like rolling pins or large utensils in crocks. Another way to use them in the kitchen is to store dirty table linens and towels in them. A very large crock placed by a fireplace neatly holds firewood.
Bulk dry goods like nuts or dog food stores well in big crocks. Place large dried flower or branch arrangements in them to brighten a room or porch. Use a large crock as a place to stash toys in a children's or family room.
