Some building collectors also collect the original boxes which came with the souvenir. Types of boxes vary greatly from cheap paper, plain cardboard, printed cardboard to ornate velvet-covered presentation boxes. Boxes can be considered a form of ephemera, which is paper material which is not intended to be retained or preserved. Other collectible ephemera includes advertising trade cards, catalogues, greeting cards, letters, pamphlets, postcards, posters, stock certificates and tickets. Check out the photo gallery below of some souveneir buildings and their original boxes. Do you collect boxes with your building replicas? Do you save the box when you buy a replica new? Do you believe they are more valuable with the original box?
