As we prepare for the upcoming season of Lemax collecting and decorating, we have to go through all of our samples (so many, cringe) and clean and repair any damage we have done to them during our hustle and bustle during our selling season. As we were going through our figurines and accessories, we decided to write a blog about one of the most common questions we get at trade shows and shops: how do you store those figures and accessories. Like most people we started by keeping all those clam shell packaging you get the Lemax figurines and accessories in. We also asked Lemax if they sell anything to help with this storage process, unfortunately they haven't started a line of products for that yet (baffles me too, I know!). Since it became such a pain every time we set up or tear down our display, we decided to search for alternative methods.
We came across ornament storage boxes. I CANNOT emphasize enough how much trouble it has saved us. We have cut our tear down time in half and our set up time as well! The figures and accessories are less likely to be damaged because they have dividers to keep them separated. We prefer to use the plastic bins over some of the fabric ones that way if you transport them, they are less likely to be damaged.
Here are some of the examples from Amazon of the ones we love to use (click on image and it will take you to where you can buy them):
These storage boxes range from $20-$30. If you have Amazon Prime you can get these easy storage solutions within 2 days!
Here are some photos of how we use the boxes:
Hope this helps many of you as much as it has helped us!
