Abstract (en)

A method and apparatus for the storage of goods within a cavity is disclosed. The unique shape and appearance of the enclosure (10) not only allows the enclosure to protect the goods contained therein, but also is quickly and easily identifiable and allows the enclosure to function as an indicator of the source and quality of the goods contained therein. The enclosure (10) is preferably formed from a single piece of material (preferably cardboard or the like) and is folded to form a base (32), left and right sides (34), left and right arms (16, 18), and an upper region (20). The enclosure may also include one or more apertures (30) that allow potential consumers to view and/or touch the goods contained within the cavity (11).
