I am making steady progress in my search for 59 vintage lunch boxes for a hotel in Portland, Oregon. So far, I have amassed 44. And as you can see, they are taking over my Hoosier cabinet.
Everyone has been asking how theses lunch boxes will ultimately be used. At this point, I really don't know. I imagine them in a display of some sort or resting inside individual cubbies together on a wall. I think that would look quite striking, don't you?
Just 15 more to go!
News flash! I just heard from the project manager as to how these boxes will be used. She said they will be creating a collection of assemblages consisting of a lunchbox, a vintage book, and a porcelain owl on top of a lamp base. I can't quite picture what she means, but she promises me a photo when they are done.
