I have noticed folks making cool things out of boxes like purses and, ...well, decorated boxes. Anyway, I have a whole bunch of nice wood cigar boxes that I had saved from back when I used to indulge in that particular vice more regularly, (back when I lived near Ybor City "The Cigar Capital of the U.S." and before the dawn of Cigar Asphyxianado and before it became the fad that it did).

Anyway, being the pack-rat that I am, I saved all the boxes (and all the bands too, but I want to keep those) thinking they would be cool to do something with. Now I have more ideas than time and I realize that not only will I not get around to making something out of these boxes, I need the space desperately. So rather than donate them to the thrift store, or worse, chuck them in the trash, I'd like to offer them to any creative Tiki fanatic here on Tiki Central who would make something cool with them. All you have to do is pay for the shipping and they are yours. Oh, and you have to send me pictures of what you do with them.

So who's interested? Flounder? Anybody?

-Duke

There are several kinds and sizes. Mostly larger, "Churchill" size. Honduran, Dominican– an assortment. Some were for torpedo or pyramid sized cigars so the boxes are a funky trapezoidal shape. Ben, send me your address and I'll put a bunch in a box to ship out. How many do you want? You want them all? I'd rather get rid of as many as possible at once, rather than pack up several shipments and make a bunch of trips to the Post Office. Come one! Come all! Step right up and get yer big load of free boxes before Amy kills me for hoarding all this stuff! Who knows what I might have to get rid of next? This baby of ours is requiring all kinds of space.

Hey FLOUNDER, now you want all my boxes too??
Really I don't mind splitting them with you but you gotta come down here to get them..
Or I don't care if Duke wants to split them thats OK, I just thought it would be easier to ship in 1 bundle, depending on the size. I'm for the easiest way for all around.

OK, they are all spoken for. Ben, TikiChris and Flounder get some and I still have a few for spy-tiki if you would like them. I need your address, and yours Flounder if you want me to send them directly to you. Otherwise, I can send the Florida boys one big box to one address and you two can get together and thumb wrestle over them. Just let me know. Hey! this is kinda' like that freecycle thing that dogbytes posted. Anybody need any baby clothes size newborn to 3 months or 3 to 6 months? Logan just turned 6 months and he's a big boy so we have clothes he's already outgrown. Oh, wait. Amy already gave most of those to her cousin who's expecting.
