Growing up in rural AK, I had heard about breadboxes, but never actually seen one, nor even cared. As of yesterday, however, I now own one. It's a rather splendid shade of avocado green, slightly scratched and battered, but it is a breadbox. A cat-proof breadbox. Although it fastens with a magnet, so I may have to put a latch on it....I have now moved Uptown.
