Beach Candy Sand Boxes are hand-crafted from authentic (sometimes vintage or antique) cigar boxes. All of which are hand-selected before a multi-step process takes place, transforming each Sand Box into a one-of-a-kind treasure! These are built to last a lifetime...Seriously! Nothing flimsy here - just really great quality. Most of the boxes are lined, and the hardware has been replaced with solid brass hinges and latch. The hand-beaded handles are super strong, too! Turn some heads as you carry a Sand Box on your arm. When you are not using it as a purse, hang it on your wall and just see how many comments you receive! Made with Aloha!
