I'm a huge fan of containers... always have been. I can't really stand the smell of cigars, but the boxes they come in, that's a whole different story! When I stumbled upon these $5 finds, I was overjoyed! I happened to be out with some friends at an Albuquerque watering hole that is also a cigar bar and saw a stack of used, empty boxes. There were big ones, little ones, colorful ones, wooden ones, even some gilded with metallic accents. Always willing to inquire, I flagged down a hostess and got my hot little hands on a few.
Perfect for storing sewing notions, trinkets and precious love letters from the mister, these "Romeo y Julieta" cigar boxes are a delightful addition to my ever-growing collection of containers.
