    Cedar Boxes

    Does anyone know where I can find a cedar box in the Des Moines/Newton area? My girlfriend's grandfather passed away this week so I want to get her something to put the obituary and wake service cards that they will be preserved. My mom said to look toward Antique Shops for this stuff, but I'm not sure where I should be looking. Any help will be appreciated.

    You can give these guys a call, they have alot of unfinished furniture - not sure if they'd have something like what you're looking for or not.

    Cigar boxes.

    Some are pretty lousy looking, but there are a lot of finely crafted ones out there. As long as you don't mind the cigar brand on the top.

    Check with furniture stores that carry the full size cedar chests. They might know of suppliers.

    A long time ago, senior girls used to get the little cedar boxes as graduation gifts from some company. At least in the school I went to.
