Summary Fair

Assessor Rachel Niswander

Notes The box is not in the best of shape. The edges are creased and worn. Bottom lid is slightly torn from the box. 64 is written on one side, and on that same side, the lettering 'red' has pencil markings on them. Dented on the 'products for the nursery' side. Bottom of the container is not as tightly together.
