Now I treasure them and they are a permanent part of my stitching supplies.
It was immediate love when I started using it for the ongoing suffrage project. I had so many bits and bobs and it was a dream to be able to clear the table when needed and still have a lovely aide.
Eventually I got a second one on eBay and am using both for this CQJP project and the hanky quilt which use many of the same materials..
It is such a delight to set all my supplies out when working and be able to stack them away.
I am about to start another project in an entirely different color scheme and wanted another set of boxes so went on line last night and found a used set for $10. They are available new at the Happy Mall ... but I find them used on Esty and eBay for very little. I use "Asian stacking boxes" when doing a search but they are sometimes called Bento boxes or also wedding boxes. They would be a great mother's day gift for yourself or as a gift to another stitcher.
Mine are lovely but just plastic. So if I were wealthy I would definitely go for a antique one like this....only $2200.
