Archival Ornament Storage Boxes
Could be better
If this box had a weatherproof container to go in (like the $79 Red Moire Ornament Box on this website), it would be perfect. Alas, they do not. So they are not humidity proof. I live in Hawaii and though the ornaments seem fine, the box is showing warping from the humidity. I keep them in my garage which is "closed up" but I suspect that they will need to be replaced soon (I've had them for 5 years now).
It would be great if the manufacturer would make a plastic box that 3 or 4 of these boxes would fit in...

the archival cardboard box looked good and seemed to be what I needed but whenI brought it home and unwrapped it, it stunk...literally it stunk - had a very foul order which stunk up not only my apt but also the car I transported it in. The store clerk also confirmed it stunk (of something like vomit) when it was returned to the Tysons Corner Store - I just hope the Manager also got ibvolved --- because anyone who got close to it would have to smell as the order was very strong - unless you like the smell of rotten cheese, then don't buy this box.

Indoor Ornament Storage
These are nice boxes if you are planning to store your Christmas ornaments in a moisture-free/pest-free location (not an attic, garage or basement). We have the larger size and they hold many ornaments in a compact space. I like that they are archival - though the cardboard itself nicks easily. I wish more inserts were provided with the box - I felt that the individual cells/ compartments were rather large. Also, I think they are rather expensive for what they are - I was expecting more from something that calls itself "The Best Christmas Storage Box Ever ". Still, they suit our purposes, and I would recommend them with some reservations.
