Examples of shoebox in a Sentence

  1. Lecturer Matt Ripa:

    I was curious what was inside and opened the bag. Inside was a shoebox, and inside the shoebox was the dress ! I couldn't believe it, my co-worker and I quickly grabbed some gloves and looked at the dress and took some pictures before putting it back in the box and heading over to the( University) Archives. Needless to say, I have found many interesting things in Gilbert Hartke during my time at Catholic University, but I think this one takes the cake !
