Vintage Chocolate Boxes

I have collected vintage chocolate boxes since the early 1990's.  They are very hard to find in good condition and thus makes them a perfect collectible because the collection stays small and when I do find one, it is so very special.  I have kept the collection to the paper boxes and not the tins.  The tins are very plentiful and are not as desirable to me although I find many of them to be exquisitely beautiful as well.  Since it is the season for chocolates, I thought I would share some of my collection with you.




 The above box, although not vintage, is made with vintage materials and I love it just as much as some of my other boxes.  This one is from Goldbug Studios.  Ashley Carter is the designer and she does some amazing things with boxes and these adorable little people she makes.
I store them all together with some of my other favorite things in a large antique cabinet in our entry way.  Because the cabinet is a true antique, it is not lit up so I put mirrors in the back of it to reflect a little bit of light behind my collection of collections.   Thanks for stopping by.

I have an Elvis heart box that had chocolates one year. Not sure why I even have it, probably couldn't toss the King in the trash.
