Umba Box – November Review

I have recently got into this kick where I am obsessed with subscription boxes. In the last 2 months I have managed to subscribe to 3.  They are currently for Umba Box, Julep and for Popsugar Must Have. Yesterday I received my second Umba Box which contains handmade goodies. The says that they will send you 2-3 modern and whimsical handmade products every month. The cost is about $25 a month plus  shipping and they claim to give you at least $25 worth of items. I subscribed for 3 months during a deal where they offered 1 month free for a total of 4 months. The deal was done through their facebook page so I highly recommend that you connect with them to see what goodies they are offering.

So for the unveiling of the November Box you can see all the goodies inside in the above picture. This box contained 3 smaller items that consisted of candy, a hardback notebook and a set of clothed pins.

  

Starting with the biggest item the Notebook is very cute and it is made by To Boldly Fold. It is about 5 by 3.5″ in size and has a hard cover. Looking at both her stores on her website and Etsy I am not able to exactly price the value of this notebook. It seems to be a specially made order for Umbra, but based on her other items I would price this at about $18-20.

The next item was a set of 6 decorated clothes pins from Earth Cookie Creations. These are nice to have to hang maybe pictures or reminders on a string in your home. They also come with handy magnets on the back so you can stick them on your fridge or any other metal surface.  Too bad my fridge is not magnet, otherwise they would be been used there.  Based on her Etsy store, where she hand makes other paper items like pin wheels and note cards,  it looks like the cost of these clothes pins would be about $4.

Last but not least was this tiny bag The Caramel Jar. It contained 3  handmade and wrapped Fleur de Sel Caramels. The label claims that they are 8 oz, but it was more like 2-3 oz. Nonetheless these tasted amazing and were just enough to get you hooked. I gave a try to my boyfriend and he had to have a whole piece to himself. On comparing the size of the bag and what is in her Etsy shop, they are about the size of her wedding sample pack which has a value of $3.50.

Overall this was a good box and total value came out to about $25. I think it was worth it considering you would have to pay shipping for any of the items, and it’s nice to get a mix of different things.

Can’t wait for the December Box!
