Every now and again, Iâ€™ll be flipping through a magazine or looking at an article online and Iâ€™ll see a photo like one of these:
Or, perhaps itâ€™s not a stack of Hermes boxes. Perhaps, itâ€™s more subtle.
Because who doesnâ€™t have a closet full of Hermes or scads oâ€™ Tiffany baubles and the accompanying boxes?
Here in Jenworld, we too are classy and display our boxes:
This yearâ€™s holiday gifts brought to you (literally) by the Big Brown Truck of Joy.
Tell me honestly: Would / do you display your Hermes and Tiffany boxes for all the world to see?
I would have to own something from one of those places first!
So pretentious….and what a waste of a nice shower space in the first one!
Ha! The fanciest boxes I have are from Converse and Bass shoes. They have a nice flip-top.
My boxes are full of beads and fabric… and things Iâ€™ve forgotten that Iâ€™ve already purchased because I did a stash-n-dash… and paperwork from 1997 that horrifies me when I open the box (so I close it and push it away).
Um, what was the question?
I prefer see-through bins for my pretties.
I guess I donâ€™t flip through those kinds of magazines! I love your brown tower! Itâ€™s already tree shaped!
Thanks to a funky layout and no where else to store them, visitors to our apartment when we first married were greeted by a stack of Tiffanyâ€™s boxes on the steps to nowhere facing our front door. Once we bought our house and had proper storage for those items, that was no longer the case.
But yes, I once had a stack of Tiffany blue boxes greeting visitors.
I canâ€™t say I recognize boxes, unless the name of the business is nice and big. We have mostly Amazon boxes, and we used lots of them for baby-proofing when Emma was young. Weâ€™re been trying to get out of the habit of storing things away in boxes for years now, but somehow those Amazon boxes are still scattered around.
If someone would gift me a few, Iâ€™d proudly display the boxes. However, not owning any Hermes or Tiffany, Iâ€™m afraid the only boxes folks see in my house are Rubermaid ones full of Legos.
(Closest Iâ€™ve ever come to Tiffany: a pair of earrings a dear friend lent me for my wedding. I was terrified Iâ€™d lose one the entire time.)
I think probably boxes are the only things from Hermes I could afford!
Oh my! I have a stack of boxes of all kinds in our garage waiting for the next school paper drive…I WOULD save a stack of old cigar boxes, though. The wooden kind. Iâ€™d stack them in my living room.
