cardboard box love

Selfridges
 regular readers of my blog will know i'm a bit of a cardboard box nerd. here is a selection of what i call 'shop shirt boxes'. These were all found in car boot sales and house clearances. Originally produced by high end retailers to present or post goods, garments and alterations to customers. Always constructed from a hard-wall cardboard with metal stapled joints, never from cheaper corrugated cardboard. often, but not always designed with an area to label the recipient's address. double click images to view larger.
