Hi Jess, thanks - Iv sent you a friend request so we can sort something out without clogging the forum. I see youre a pinstriper too - very cool. A good pal of mine does striping and I got him to do a few boxes for me a while back - made some wicked guitars with them :)

Hi Roosterman.  What is your going rate -- it varies greatly here in the US?  I got a basement full of boxes, which I may part with.   JA

Hi guys, Anyone Stateside have an overstock of boxes they'd like to turn into $$$? Im Uk based, and usually ship in 30 - 50 at a time, always from a brother on the Nation. A mix of paper covered and wood ones would be great, though mulitples are ok. Of course I'll pay the going rate for boxes and cover the shipping.... and you'll be in the wifes good books for clearing out some boxes. Win win!

Many thanks folks, RM
