For a decent price.Shipping was killing me.Theres a little nurses store(kinda like Salvation Army) by me and I'm getting really cool ones for like $1 or $2 bucks.Alot better than $20 on ebay.

thats why I make my own box's much cheaper in the long run and your not restricted to just a square box.

I want to get into that,but right now I'm wayyyy overstocked on boxes.What do you make them out of?

Now don't go telling everyone or they will disappear, talking from experience....

Ha I know!!!

Thrift stores are good places to find them occasionally but they go fast since people love to use them for a variety of craft projects, not just CBGs, and some people just like the boxes themselves because they look cool.

I've gotten about 40 from plain old antique picking, which I do anyway for our antique mall booths. I'm leaning toward building my own boxes though, just to have more control.

Yeah I know.I bought a really cool box a few years ago that was made into a purse,I just took the handle off to use it for a cbg.I also have ones for all my little cbg parts.

Have a few in the works,but the next one is a gonna be a Winston Churchill biscut tin.Its a decent size and I got it for like $.50 cents at a garage sale.Funny enough the lady said hold on my husband has heard of cbg's,so the old man came out and we had a pretty cool convo about them,then he hooked me up w/ another for free.Its a bit deeper,but another Churchill tin.And they have an ongoing garage sale thats a stones throw away a few houses down the street.So they said they'll set aside any boxes they come across for me.

Thanks for the replys!

Its like the pic,but not as good of condition.
