    Do you keep the collectibles boxes?

    Just curious if any of you keep the boxes that your collectible came in, or do you prefer to have them out in the open for your enjoyment.

    I realize that most items have a higher value if you keep the box, but I don't plan on selling mine, so it doesn't matter to me.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Re: Do you keep the collectibles boxes?

    My Disney collectibles are out of the boxes and on display in my curio since most are porcelain. My Sailor Moon collection is a bit different. The plastic and porcelain figures are out of the box but all my dolls are still in the boxes with the original tape still holding the box shut. They are more valuable that way. I do keep all the boxes, though. I have a room dedicated to my collectibles and it is themed that way. The boxes fit nicely in the closet.

    I have tonz of attic room, so I keep the boxes....so y'know, when my kids finally decide to sell all the Disneyland stuff on ebay 30yrs from now to help get their kids thru college, the stuff will be worth more w/ the boxes!

    Even if I don't think I will ever sell a collectible I try and keep the box. I also think about future generations and try to make sure they can get the most money from my Disney items.

    I live in a small house so I just chuck the boxes away. I know they are worth more with the box, but like Jen said, I am not going to sell my stuff so I don't need the boxes. Who cares what happens to them when I am dead.

    We keep all the boxes for packing and switching out purposes. All empty boxes get tossed into the attic.

    Re: Do you keep the collectibles boxes?

    I keep boxes because I move a lot and feel safer having everything in the right boxes instead of just wrapped up.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I keep the boxes for transporting the item and for storage if I have to rotate my displays (I'm not there yet, but I'm getting closer).

    Ditto and I keep them for value, if for some reason I need to part with it. In some cases it is more valuable with the box.

    Even though I have a small house, never intend on selling my pieces or never ever plan on moving-I keep my boxes.

    Re: Do you keep the collectibles boxes?

    All boxes are tossed......When I die, Mr. Lightyear can just open a small shop and sell them off the shelves....along with all my other collectibles, plus I have no room to store them!

    Re: Do you keep the collectibles boxes?

    I used to keep all of the boxes even though it was annoying to have to find places to store them. Then I noticed that some of the older boxes were falling apart, so now I toss all of them.
