Hey Everyone,

I picked up some paper mache boxes at Hobby Lobby last week and decorated them by painting and distressing them with paint and ink.  The inside is painted black.  I have an example in the photo.  I am wondering if anything like this sells in your area and for how much?  The boxes I have are square or round or heart shaped and about 3x3 or 3 inch diameter.

Hi Cindy.
The boxes wouldn't sell around here as they are too small to be useful. I have seen the larger (6inch) boxes at school shows and they're usually under $5.

There's NOTHING at a craft show, or on Etsy, anybody NEEDS. NOTHING.

Indeed, Chris is right, the uses for a 3-inch box aren't numerous. Sure, you can sell them, but you have to sell them for peanuts, around $1 per inch, and you'll have better luck if you're in a show next to a jewelry crafter or someone who sells something that can fit in your box. Probably 15 years ago, or when they weren't so plentiful, I was buying a bit of a collection of boxes, and the 8-inch ones - highly decorated - were still only getting around $15.
