Making the mini-shipping bin not a one-of-a-kind reward.

Right now, as far as I could see, you can get only two mini-shipping bins in the game, one from a special, non-repeatable quest from Pierre's, and another from a repeatable quest from Lewis that only gifts it the first time you complete it.

Given the inherent limitations of the box (only 9 types of objects, cannot pick up without taking the stuff back first, only obtainable by reasonably difficult quests that come from a roll of dice at the start of the week), I think making them theoretically unlimited (by special quests), wouldn't be that upsetting for the game balance. It's not like you cannot fill your farm with normal shipping bins anyway, and they're perfect for outside-the-farm spots like fishing places and frequently-foraged spots.

Plus, in-game would mean having poor Lewis spenidng the night walking through the whole valley checking every shipping bin for things to pick up, which I think some people would count as a plus.

Lewis' story was hard to believe from the beginning... but now that everybody has a shipping bin in Ginger Island it becomes even more ridiculous...

Did you know that if you pass out on the island, before getting the cabin, the parrots carry you back to your farm? From an island far enough from the valley as to have a perpetual tropical climate! And they even tuck you back in bed and everything. Who's to say they're not carrying your bin to the valley every night?

Yeah, I just repeated the crop order quest hoping to get another mini shipping bin. I was disappointed to find I only got gold. They're super convenient to have inside my farm buildings :/

If the repeatable quest would give you a mini shipping bin every time you completed it, I'd be happy. The fact that it is, rather arbitrarily, limited to 2 as is? Disappointing.

I'm personally interested in more "special" lucky finds the way it is as with the auto-petter in the CC route. Would people consider getting more mini shipping bins from monster drops and skull cavern floors acceptable too or has it got to be easier?
