Everything in the August box!

aster market august 2015 bagParris Chic Boutique Tote ($14) This tote features hand lettered calligraphy! The tote seemed a bit pricey until I saw that. I could never do that. I love totes, but I have a lot of them. I’m thinking about using this one as a very nice gift bag. I think this is a nice sentiment!

Produce Candle – Peach ($20) I was thrilled that this was in the box – I gifted my Rhubarb Produce Candle to my best friend. This has a great, authentic peach scent, and even my husband was really into it. This is a limited edition scent, and it’s 100% natural soy wax.

These are really nicely done letterpress cards. High quality, and funny too!

This was a nice box, though I expected a tad more value (the August box had $44 of items in it). One more small item would have rounded this box off really nicely. For a first box I was happy with it, and I like the curation, as well as the fact that this box donates 25% of the net proceeds to a charity I choose. In addition, I really appreciated that nothing was imported stuff of questionable quality. One thing to note – 6 and 12 month subscriptions have free shipping! If you like these items, I would sign up for a longer term subscription for a better value (or try one month at 50% off and decide whether to do 6 months). I’m personally excited to see what comes in the next box because everything was really lovely.
