Alexanders Cigars on Toorak Rd (Melbourne) has a shelf of empty cigar boxes. $3 for a plain one, $4 if it has hardware. Most of the ones they had when I went in were pretty small.

In Brisbane, Palador Fumior Salon (a Cuban Cigars and Coffee Salon -- you can smoke [cigars only] there) has boxes for $5.00 & $10.00, and the money goes to their charities. Several good sizes.

I managed to find a supplier of eyelets in Australia which you may be interested in. Contact Carr Australia Pty Ltd 1 Spireton Place, Pendle Hill, NSW 2145 email aimeereilly@carrgroup.com.au ( Aimme was very pleasant and helpful) They have various sizes in brass, nickel plated and stainless steel. I bought some of each of the following - as shown in the photograph. Top row: EY40BR 40mm brass $1.09 each, EY25BR 25 mm brass $0.80 each, GR5TWB #5 Brass 15mm $0.26 Bottom row: EY25GM 25mm gunmetal finish $1.00, EY25NI 25mm nickel $1.20, EY40NI 40mm nickel $1.20 (same price for 25 and 40 mm nickel could be a mistake)

Brass will match any brass fittings on your box.

Nickel will match any nickel or chrome fittings.

I was also able to get a 25mm nickel eyelet and 15mm brass from a local canvas maker. Regards John D
