Packing teapots

March 11, 2023 · 2 Comments

So…. this is how I pack my teapots for moving. You buy those butcher paper – enough to wrap them all. Then, just simply wrap the pot with the paper – usually trying to get a sheet between the lid and the body, so it’s at least cushioned if not snug. Although, take care not to be too snug – you could, theoretically, crush your lid that way if you try to force it in and the lid is tight to begin with. Thankfully, with my loose lids, that’s rarely an issue.

Then you just put them in the box – the point is to 1) stop the pots from touching anything else and 2) cushion it enough so that there’s no room for shaking. This is a box that’s filled to the brim, probably something like 60 pots total. There are a few of these boxes that I need to unpack. It’s gonna take me a little while….

    Seeing a new post from you is like getting a beautiful unexpected present. Blogs ain’t dead…I feel it’s more like e-mails. In the world of super quick and disposable news, these are the last resorts of something that’s truly ours, truly in our “own hands” and decisions.
    So thanks a million for all your writings and sharing and looking forward to see more of it.

    Great idea! I have been keeping all the brocade boxes that came with the teapots, and they take a lot of space…
