Please be sure to read my shop front page. Welcome to my etsy store. You have found the original Beadboxman home of cigarbox bead storage. I have been selling these beautiful and functional bead storage boxes on eBay, lampworketc, and justbeads for a couple of years. I make them from cigarboxes. Most are crafted of solid woods, usually aromatic Spanish cedar.
I use 1/8 new aluminum mandrels to support the beads. This size mandrel works well with beads made on 4mm and larger mandrels. The base of most boxes is lined with a matboard. A custom cut foam mat is provided to protect the beads during transport. I will also include removable/replaceable stoppers to place on the ends of the mandrels to keep the beads from slipping off when lifted. These boxes are not only good for transporting and storing beads but making useful selling displays as well.
The photos tell the story. I will list the size of the box in inches, brand of the cigar box and total inches of bead storage. The ruler in the photo should help confirm the size. Shipping varies among the listings. If I overcharge by over a dollar, I will refund the difference. I ship a few times a week.
Cigar box Brand: Unknown, not a cigar box
Box Size in inches: 14.75x8.25x2.25
Total length of bead storage in inches: 101.5
Comments/Rarity: This is for the person that want lots of storage with a refined display. Box is covered in a black leather texured material. Oversized clasp and good quality hinges. Glass (not plastic) top material. This box is only usable with the large hole beads. Bonus: Buy two of these at the same time and I will refund $4 from your paypal purchase, ($2 per box)
For most boxes I will have more of them than I am listing so if you want a matched set let me know and I will list additional ones or offer something similar. A few are unique or hard to come by and I will try to warn you if that is the case. (Usually the price I am asking is a good hint as to if I think it is unusual or hard to find, a typical good box will run $10) I hope to keep at least 20 boxes up at a time. Everyone has their favorites. Varieties include natural wood, painted wood, big ones, little ones, shallow ones, deep ones, frugal cardboard ones, and trays. Personally, I prefer larger flat boxes with a latch in natural wood. For show displays the deeper boxes show off the beads a bit better, but take up a bit more room. A mixture of shorter and taller boxes can make a dramatic sales display. The space below the mandrels can be used for storage of other items. There is a photo of an open box full of beads in each auction to show you what the boxes look like full of beads. Of course these beads are not included.
