Little treasures themselves, sweets and accessories come in the most beautiful boxes - especially the French ones. Tiny boxes are one of my favorite kinds of ephemera, and also one of the most practical, as they double as storage for other tiny pieces of ephemera that would otherwise clutter up my life. In particular I appreciate Fauchon’s anticipation of reuse by producing less ephemeral tin chocolate boxes.
