No problem, just i had someone offer me them for around $2 each, and i wanted to know if i should buy 50 or so and sell off the extras, or just buy the 10 i need.

They are actually those display cases that people keep beeny babies or what ever in, some guy kept a whole crap load of them and sold them all off but he has all his cases left, They are in excellent condition no cracks and no noticeable scratches.
If you would want to order some pm me how many so i know how many to pick up from the guy.

Meaning you think i could sell them if i order 50 instead of 10?
personally if i had a chance to get em at a good price id buy 50. But do what you want, theres always some risk involved in buying to resell but my guess is you would do good.

I've gotten the same exact ones at The Container Store-- if this person wants 2$ try to get them for cheaper, cause they are only around 2$ brand new.

amac cubes/container store

These are not the exact same ones - the lid is bigger. Container Store sells them online for 2.99 - i was just at store location and same price which was cheaper than craft stores.

Amac does carry a flat top arcrylic box like the ones in your photo but i did not see one as tall as that. The container store does carry amac flat top lid series as well but not on the website for some reason.

Do you know what brand the cubes are? How tight the lids fit? i noticed a big difference in the more expensive cubes i bought at Michaels and the cheaper Amac cubes at the Container Store. The less expensive Amac brand have much better, tighter fitting lids! Hope this helps a little.

I emailed the guy about those questions(who made them and how tight the lid is) so if i get a satisfactory response i'll order them and try to sell off about half.

Couldn't find those at TAP plastics, they only had ball display cases and none were a good size.

You may want to check out TAP Plastics before you make the purchase. ;)
I checked their online site and they have some steap prices. There's a store down the street from me but Iv'e never checked it out though.
