I’ve been saving ticket stubs in my desk drawer for years. I’ve tossed around ideas in my head on just what to do with them countless times, but none of the things I came up with ever excited me. I wanted something pretty, inexpensive and timeless and I finally found the perfect thing!
Sorting through all of the old tickets was a wonderful trip down memory lane. This is exactly what I wanted to preserve – an accessible, easy way for us to collect these memories. I had anywhere from one to three of each and ultimately decided just to save one from each event or experience. I have sporting events, shows, movies, ballets, and even room keys from some iconic hotels or trips!
I found the lovely gold and glass box on Amazon for a fraction of the price of similar boxes at stores like Pottery Barn and West Elm. It was $30 with prime shipping! It is beautiful and solid and came extremely well packaged.
I tried the little box in a lot of places around the house but ultimately settled on keeping it in the banquette area of our den. It will probably move around over the years, but I loved this spot for how easy it will be to look through and add to.
I think this box would also be lovely to hold jewelry or even little baby booties and rattles. It’s so sweet! Anyhoo, this has been on a long list in my brain for years and it sure feels good to mentally cross it off :-)
