So how did I start working with cigar boxes? It all started when I managed a busy little chocolate shop that was next to a popular cigar shop. Every day, they put out this little cart with gorgeous empty cigar boxes. I loved their graphic nature, the colors of the (stained) woods, the slight masculinity of their existence. I started buying them for myself, using them to store beads and small computer gadgets in the office. Then, one Christmas, I packaged almost every single gift inside a different cigar box. Many people were excited enough about the box that they forgot the gift inside!
So I knew I liked the cigar boxes, but didn't realize others would too. After setting up my Etsy shop and promptly getting no sales, I listed a few on a whim. And had my first sale a week later! And thus it began... :)
I also own Lucky Mutts, a dog walking and pet sitting…
