I love vintage boxes from chinatown. Years ago, I would spot them while searching for chinatown treasures, and the shopkeepers would usually given them to me - I think that they thought that i was just some crazy white girl! Months later they were on to me, and they would charge me 50 cents per box or so. Now when i go to chinatown, most shops have their old boxes on the shelves for sale for several dollars each! But I still love them and usually will buy 1 or 2 as a treat for myself.
