Money Boxes in Toronto - Where to Buy?

Hi Everyone,

Can any of you recommend a good place to buy a money box?? I'm not looking for anything elaborate but something quirky and different. I was thinking of making my own but decided not to becuase I don't really have the time. Any inspiration? Ie. what did you do your money box?

Thanks!

    I asked my very eager BM to make it, lol. PIB

    There are some really cute ones on etsy.com. Check Craigslist too... if you're lucky, you might encounter a bride trying to get rid of a nice one.

    I've actually seen them for rent if that interests you.  Cheaper way to do it so you aren't stuck with it after.

    If you're just looking for something cheap-ish, go to Michaels with one of their 40% off couupons (they always come in the flyers)...they dont have a massive selection, but hey, it's a box! I also had grand plans of making my own, but at this point I just don't have the time (or the patience! lol)

    I also agree with ring_pop, look on Kijiji and Craigslist, I know I've seen a few on there.

    You could make one for far cheaper than buying on, and that would be a one evening project.  Coupons from Michael's would make it even cheaper.

    But for buying, the ideas the other have suggested are all I've got.

    I made my own for $40, but it was destroyed after the wedding because I didn't put a hole in the bottom to get out the cards - oops.  DH's parents were in charge of putting all the envelopes in their hotel room safe mid-reception, and I never saw it again!

    Our wedding planner lent us one - it was basically just a small vintage style suitcase that was open for cards! I think you could find something at Homesense to use! They also had them at bag store I mentioned on here a while ago...Creative Bags on Danforth. I love the idea of using a vintage birdcage!

    I bought mine at Party Packagers (it was on clearance because it's a 25th wedding anniversary box).  I went to the fabric store and bought some padding and pretty silver fabric.  I plan on covering the box and then putting a ribbon on it.  It won't take much time and I am creatively inclined like that. 

    I had a bit of an issue spending much more on the money box given it's purpose and reusability, so that was my creative compromise.  I am covering the guest book in the same fabric

    (chrome to match myfiance's favourite color)

    Creative Bag has some for $14.95 and 10.95.  They are plain white with white flower pattern on it but you simply add a bow and bling and voila.  I think that's what I am going to end up doing
