bride wants something special to make her wedding unique.
Instead of a guest book, I wanted a fabric covered box
that my guests would place their completed "Thoughts for
the Bride and Groom" scalloped light pink and sage cards
that I had made. Rose pens were made in shades of pink
and placed in a glass vase for their use. My husband
and I would later exchange little gifts, cards, etc.
in the box throughout our marriage. A local event planner
stated she would make a lovely box and sketched out the
design in early March 2005. By early May, she still had
not started but promised I would have it one week before
my wedding, May 28th. I lost my trust and patience and
asked for my money back. After searching the web, I found
Pandora's Hat Boxes. They were more beautiful than what
I originally was having made, but could I get one in
time. My wedding was three weeks away, and I live in
the U.S. I called and Giuseppina told me she had a box
in stock and could add the silk roses in the colors of
my wedding and ship it out in a few days. She and her
husband were so helpful. They really care about what
they do. I had the box several days before my wedding.
The workmanship is absolutely beautiful. I've never seen
anything like it and would definitely buy others as gifts.
It was a true joy to work with them.
Barbara - Illinois, USA
Who would have
thought when we first saw these unique boxes 10 years ago
that we would not only be the proud owners of something
very special and different but that we would also gain the
friendship of a very special and unique person.
Most of our families and friends and relatives in the UK
and Canada are now the proud owners of various Pandora's
Boxes. Thank you.
Elizabeth and Hilda - Arnold, Nottingham, UK
have created the most beautiful, ornamental memory box
for me. The design of the memory box was extremely important
to me for sentimental reasons. Giuseppina followed my
specifications to the letter and also graciously took
some artistic liberties which enhanced the box immensely.
She asked for the décor
of my home to be sure the colors were right; and used the
highest quality fabric and created a needlepoint lid
depicting the image I was trying to portray. The overall
quality of the box is excellent.
Giuseppina is a pleasure to work with. Her prices are excellent
as well. She is one of the best in customer service that
I've encountered and gladly and highly recommend her.
I'd like to add that I live in the USA and all this was
done via email. I didn't have to email photos of what I
wanted. Giuseppina is so very artistic and creative that
photos weren't necessary. She made a very important, sentimental
ornamental box which is now a very special decorative part
of my home, and did it with great ease.
Deborah - Alexandria, Virginia, USA
have arrived in the biggest box I have ever seen!!. I don't
know how you packed them. The two boxes are superb. The
hatbox with the Sanderson fabric is truly beautiful and
you will never guess but it matches my curtains perfectly.
I shall now enjoy putting one of my very best hats in it.
I have loads, some hugely expensive as I was the Mayor of
Runnymede in 2004 and the hats went with the job.
The Harry Potter style box is just fantastic and wonderful
fun. I cannot get over the attention to detail, even the
insides are as beautiful as the exterior of the boxes.
You were an amazing find on the internet. Such craftsmanship
is rare to find these days. I shall be back with a Christmas
order very shortly and shall tell all my lady ex-mayors
about you, as they all have the same problem of finding
storage which is practical but also beautiful and a joy
Many thanks for all your help and incredible service.
Mary - Egham, Surrey, UK
Thank you so much
for the beautiful box it was even better than I had expected.
From the beginning of the order to the delivery of my box
I was impressed with the professional and friendly service
I was given. I will most certainly order from you again.
Carol - Emsworth, Hampshire, UK
The Savoy ballroom
was dressed in chocolate brown and tones of pink. Each
of the 40 tables had a fabulous centre piece, a chocolate
brown velvet covered hat box, filled with a mass of gorgeous
pink roses. Either side of the stage were two giant velvet
covered hat boxes filled with an abundance of roses.
Pandora's Boxes made easy work of one of the many elements
that went towards making this a spectacular wedding. Samples
arrived within days after discussion, the boxes were beautifully
made, and prices were incredibly reasonable.
It was a pleasure to work with Giuseppina, great customer
service, can’t believe how easy it was to do business
over the phone and via emails!’
Katie - Wild At Heart, London, UK
beautiful hat box has fulfilled so many ideas and thoughts
I've had for a while now. My mum died sadly when I was 8
years old and losing her so young has made me realise all
the things I never got to know about her. The simplest of
things like, what did she weigh when she was born, all her
likes and dislikes etc etc, the list is endless.
I have grandchildren of my own now and it is so important
to me that they know as much about me as possible. I wanted
to design something very pretty and feminine in soft fabrics
and pastel colours, that would always look special as the
years go by. I couldn't believe my eyes when I came across
Pandora's Boxes, it was everything and more I had dreamed
of . I spent hours looking at all the different choices
in the hatboxes along with lovely designs and colours. I
had built up a picture in my mind of exactly what I'd like
so I gave them a ring. I spoke to Giuseppina to see if she
could help make my dream come true. She did that and more.
I am now the proud owner of a beautiful hat box which is
filled with some precious memories and photos of me and
my grandchildren, even the occasional secret here and there
and much more.
When I first spoke to Giuseppina it was like speaking to
an old friend I hadn't seen for a while, her priority throughout
has been to make sure I am happy. She is a very special
lady who is passionate about her work, I can't wait for
my grand daughter to be born this year 2007 so I can ask
Giuseppina to work her magic once again.
Thank you once again.

I'm writing to
tell you how fortunate I feel to have found Pandora's Hat Boxes.
Your products are not only Exquisite and Elegant and are the
Perfect Compliment to any decor or gift but are even more spectacular
in person than they are in the pictures. As you know, my company's
name is Classic and Chic Gift Boutique and I create gift baskets
unique to the individuals they are being made for ..... Just
like the people, no two are ever alike. Although I've been
unable to part with several of the boxes ordered from Pandoras,
those that have housed these gifts have certainly done their
share in enforcing our name, Classic & Chic.
Thank you for such lovely products and for making it an absolute
joy to order from Pandora's.
- Owner, Rochester, New York, USA
Thank YOU for
allowing me an opportunity to claim ownership of some
of your boxes and telling buyers how truly special they
are. I do know that God is in the details and that everything
you have sent me speaks to that truth.

again for the many boxes you have supplied me with over the
past 9 years for myself, family and friends and for the black

Not only is the quality excellent but the choice of colours is
so appealing that they look too good to use!

Angela - Healing, Near Grimsby,
The hat boxes
that you designed are absolutely GORGEOUS! They don't have
boxes like these in the USA, if you find any at all. When
I saw the website, I couldn't believe my eyes. I received
them in the USA within the specified time and with no hassles.
Everyone that has seen the boxes just LOVE them. They are
so well made with fine details. Exactly like their online
photos. THANKS SO MUCH, and look forward to doing more business
with Pandora's Hat Boxes. Thanks Giuseppina!

I have ordered
5 of Pandora's boxes over the past year and have been extremely
happy with all of them. They are beautifully made and look
better than the pictures on the website. These beautiful
boxes have given us a little bit of joy during a very sad
time as we lost our 22 month old daughter and sister. Each
of us in the family now has a precious box filled with the
special things of Amber that are dear to us.
Sharon and family - Sammamish, Washington.
of a lingerie trade fair stand design that I was working
on for my client I had agreed to source some beautiful old
fashioned style hatboxes. Little did I know how difficult
it would be, until I found Pandora’s Boxes! They absolutely
exceeded my expectations in every way. Even though I had
given Giuseppina a ridiculously tight deadline, she produced
for me 10 x covered jumbo hatboxes, they were utterly beautiful
and made to a far higher quality than I had requested or
expected. As we where working to such a tight deadline I
trusted Giuseppina on colour and fabric choices, these were
perfect and the boxes looked superb. The service I received
was beyond the call of duty, and I so appreciated the extra
efforts that were made in order to complete the job on time
for me. The boxes received numerous compliments and are
still displayed in my client’s office. I would recommend
Pandora’s Boxes to anyone looking for high quality,
sensitive design, excellent service and ultimately a beautiful
Libby - JLD Intl, London, UK.
Over ten years
ago, I came across Pandora's Boxes, and their creator,
Giuseppina, at a Country Craft Fair near Windsor Castle,
liked what I saw and placed an order ... and have been
doing so ever since.
I've had boxes for storing hats, hair accessories, scarves
and pashminas, jewellery, Christmas and birthday cards.
I've asked for difficult shapes and different sizes, with
requests for trimmings to match my own materials, and
have never been disappointed. The boxes arrive promptly,
are very hard-wearing as well as beautiful, and Giuseppina
makes me feel more like a friend than a customer.
It reminds me that it's time I had another! Like you,
I’ve been very busy, but will be in touch. Seven
grandchildren add, delightfully, to my timetable.

My daughter received
a beautiful custom keepsake box from Pandora's Boxes. The
attention to detail is incredible. Not only is the box unique,
the quality of workmanship is beyond words... Thank you!
Spencer - Oceanside, California, USA
Boxes has been the answer to so many of those creative
gift ideas I always have, but can never figure out how
to bring to fruition. When my daughter Madison was born,
I wanted to have a time capsule for family and friends
to put something special in and to collect memories over
the years. I gave just a few ideas to Giuseppina at Pandora’s
Boxes (the epitome of customer service!!) and she helped
me design a beautiful feminine box, embroidered with my
daughter’s name and birth date. It is such a special
piece of our family, beautiful to look at and a wonderful
keepsake for my daughter to have after her 16th birthday.
When my son was born almost 3 years later, I had to let
this new found tradition continue. Once again Giuseppina
helped me design a wonderful box.....more masculine with
a fabric of the most amazing blue and a darling angel
on the top....it is also embroidered with AJ's name and
birth date. Perhaps a great place for him to keep his
love letters and things he doesn't want mom and dad to
see, after he opens his on his 16th birthday.
My latest experience
with Pandora's Boxes was a very personal one. My father
passed away suddenly and left us all a little lost. When
things settled down a bit, I wanted to give my mom something
to keep the container holding my dad's ashes. She did
not want a traditional urn. I gave Giuseppina the measurement
of the container to store and she designed a lovely box
for my mom with a photo of my dad on the top and his name,
birth date and the date of his death on the inside. My
mother loves it and displays it in her home with some
other small mementos she holds dear.
Pandora's Boxes not only design beautiful things, but
the personal touch they have makes it such a fun experience
which never disappoints.
Stacy - Hilliard, Ohio, USA
me a very special customised memorial box. I had visualised
the box in my mind and when I found her website I knew straight
away that she was the right person to help me.
We discussed my
very specific details and she made my box to perfection.
When my box arrived I was so happy it was exactly how I
imagined it would be and better.
There was complete
communication and she listened to my ideas. There was no
delay and I could not fault her service or end product.
I would recommend anyone wishing for that something extra
special to contact her.
Nila - London, UK
years and many weddings that I have attended I now have
quite a collection of hats that needed a storage place
of their own not just in the top of my wardrobe.
Last year while
looking on the internet for suppliers of hat boxes I came
across Pandora's Boxes, this was going to be the place
where I purchased mine from. I did not want cardboard
hat boxes I wanted something special. I knew at the time
that I was going to be decorating my bedroom in the very
early part of the year so I decided to wait until I had
picked the colour scheme for the room, I could then co-ordinate
the hat boxes accordingly.
I contacted Giuseppina
who was just so helpful, I never once had any doubts of
my hat boxes not being what I wanted. I was kept well
informed of the progress of my order from start to finish
which gives you confidence that you are being treated
as an individual.
When they arrived
I was just over the moon, they are beautiful and match
the bedroom perfectly, the amount of hard work that has
been put into them makes them all the more special.
I hope I can find
a reason to order more boxes, I would like to have at
least one in every bedroom to give it that special touch.
Thank you once
again Giuseppina for all your hard work

decided to get a hatbox for my mother's birthday as there
was a series of family weddings coming up. However, I needed
it before the birthday as the first wedding was in two weeks.
said this was no problem and explained what she could do
in the short period. The hatbox I purchased was excellent,
suiting my mother's tastes very well. She even added a cord

to travel with her hat(s).

C. Skinner - West Sussex, UK
am overjoyed at the quality and designs of my hatboxes ordered
from Giuseppina from Pandoras Boxes. Giuseppina could not do
enough to accommodate my special order requests, after my husband
and I attended Ascot this year, and needed several hatboxes.
The fabrics are devine,
the workmanship exquisite and the service is outstanding. I simply
can not find enough superlatives to express my joy upon receiving
the finished products.
Thank you very much.

The courier even carried it into the house for my husband

So, as in every stage of this transaction, every detail has

a joy to experience.
Thank you so much for all your kindness and interest.
As for the box itself -- I am SO pleased and
delighted. It is EVERYTHING that
I had hoped for ( and more!) Elegant, stylish, useful and
most beautifully made.
Just like my lovely Libby!! A large part of the pleasure
is knowing beyond all doubt

The oh so beautiful box arrived safely this morning and I am very,very delighted
with it. Again, all has been accomplished with great efficiency and professionalism -
all of which adds to the pleasure of ordering from you and the certainty of being
thrilled with the results.
I feel that nothing could be prettier but then I remember all the other gems
on your web-site and the difficulty I had in choosing just one. Suffice to say
that I am more than happy with my choice and that I am sure that my
friend will also marvel at your skill and artistry - and just love it!

The box arrived safely
yesterday and is absolutely wonderful, a sheer delight.
I love everything about it - the pattern, the trimmings
and the intricate decoration on the top. I am pleased
it is so sturdy as I plan to use
it as a memory box, eventually to be passed on to my daughter,
and hopefully it will become a family heirloom.
I am very pleased I found your website as I can foresee
other opportunities where one of your designs would be
just the thing. It is definitely a case of storage made
beautiful as well as functional!
Thank you once again for such a wonderful product,
and for your personal attention in making sure everything
was just as I wanted.
