Kleenex on eBay?

Kleenex? Yes, I am writing about Kleenex today. I read a decorating post this morning about decorating with Kleenex that was written by blogger Eclectically Vintage about the style of the new Kleenex boxes and I wondered what I'd find if I searched for Kleenex on eBay.

Well, of course, I found lots of Kleenex because you can buy ANYTHING on eBay and you can definitely buy a humble box of Kleenex or even a crate load of them if that is your hearts desire.

You can also buy tissue box covers like the ones that are part of a typical bathroom accessories set. More interestingly, however, is the fact that you can buy Kleenex box covers in all sorts of materials, colours and themes including but in no way limited to ceramic, plastic and metal. Whatever you are into, there is likely a tissue box cover for you.

Some of the themes are very interesting, even if you might not want to own it, like the fairly rare Famicom Nintendo Kleenex box cover, suitable for the family room or the mancave.

The most expensive Kleenex box cover I saw was a wooden one, the Acanthus antique baroque-style Kleenex box cover, which is available in silver and gold. It's is quite elaborate and would suit a fancy bathroom.

Of course, on eBay I also saw a lot of interesting Kleenex items relating to the history of the company Kleenex, a few of which made me smile, like the Disney movie posters for a movie called How To Catch Cold a Disney movie I have never heard of, the Kleenex vending machines that I had no idea existed and a 1962 Chevy Kleenex dispenser, which in my humble opinion  could possibly be one of the most practical car accessories ever invented after, of course, the coffee mug holder.

Of course, knowing that there is a t-shirt for every theme, there are even Kleenex-themed t-shirts, should you be interested.

A visit to Amazon found tons of Kleenex box covers to choose from, like this humorous Egyptian-themed Kleenex box cover featuring King Tut, as well as your ordinary humble boxes of Kleenex.

Personally, I use whatever box Kleenex provides me with and it is often not Kleenex brand.  I enjoy some of the themes the tissue companies create like the Christmastime boxes and, when my boys were little, the children's themed boxes but I will admit that most of the time, I do not think about the box that my Kleenex comes in...

How about you? Do you use a Kleenex box straight from the store or do you dress yours up a bit? And do tell, is your Kleenex or another brand?

You never know
what I might have in store for you!

  1. The picture reminds me of when we went to see the King Tut exhibit at our local museum in Virginia, years and years ago. The boys would have loved having this for our kleenex!

  5. King Tut would roll over in his sarcophagus if he saw this! It's so funny - but I prefer a plain tissue box myself! Glad my post gave you the idea to search for these!

    1. That's funny! It would definitely take a special room to suit the King Tug kleenex box.
