So see this product below? It went from having 9 in stock, to being sold out and having a ton of sign ups for email notification. Our reorder arrived today and I'm checking it in.

My mystery is - why? This has been around forever, good product, but why the sudden interest? What is it being used for. It must be something other than sponge daubers right?

I've googled, no idea. I even tried putting stickles in it, they don't fit, so that's not it.

Maybe to hold small embellies? Like eyelets, brads, buttons, etc?

Or for jewelry making supplies? Is it cheaper than the boxes made for jewelry crafts?

Maybe GG Loves Mathew has found a new creative use for these and posted it on her blog (gotta love that gg!!!)

Not for Stickles? Not interested then. The 4 reviewers all use them for the daubers. :shrugs: Still a mystery to me.

Maybe for individual alphabet stamps?

I have a set of small alpha stamps that I store in an ammo box I got from the sporting store (it's a little plastic divided box).

How big are the little sections? Would cat-eye inks fit in them?

Cat-eyes won't fit in them. Its tiny, like smaller than your pinkie finger in depth.

Maybe the tiny stamps...

GG, speak up, is it you? LOL!

I was just telling my friend about this case.
I've been waiting to buy it.
I love those little finger daubers.
I have one for black, one brown and one that I wash for other colors. But would love to get more.

...maybe people have built up their supplies and they're buying it for what it was made????

Maybe people just THINK Stickles will fit? You really can't tell how big it is from the pic. Somebody might think they've found the ultimate Stickles storage and be really disappointed when it arrives. I dunno!

I just discovered those little finger daubers (reviewed the large one two days ago, in fact). I don't have enough yet to want the box, but I see it in my future.

Very interesting mystery indeed!

I wonder if it would work for small embellies? I hate when my brads get all mixed up!

Ugh, I hope not. Then they will all return them because stickles does not fit in this. Although I am on the hunt for the perfect stickle storage box. When I find it and get it in the store, I will definately post about it (well, after I buy one for myself LOL!)

I had to make my own perfect Stickles container but still would like something made specifically for Stickles.
