Some of my first antique purchases for our business were pantry boxes. I ADORE them, for so many reasons. I think I'm not alone.
In fact, I found a fellow dealer (Carole Conn) from whom I have purchased a few items (including pantry boxes from her coveted collection) who also loves pantry boxes. She calls her affection for them addiction. I GET it!
I am linking you to her recent informative blog entry about pantry boxes ... how to identify, what is most popular and why, oldest vs. newest, etc.
