Callibox July 2014 Review – Handmade Subscription Box

Callibox July 2014 Review

Callibox July 2014 Review

Callibox is a new subscription box that sends 3 to 5 handmade items each month.  I was given a discount code to try Callibox.  I love handmade items and I regularly check out new vendors on Etsy.  I love having unique items, rather than the same item everyone else has, unless it’s a designer purse.  I also like supporting small businesses.

The Details:

Cost: $20.00/monthly, $25.00/1 time box, $12.50/Mini box (2-3 items). $30.00/Themed boxes (one time only)

Shipping: Free Shipping

Details: As a subscriber, each month you will receive a curated box that contains 3 to 5 Handmade Items. Each item is selected from Artisans who are making their products in the USA.

When does the box ship? Ship dates are the 3rd – 5th of each month.

Callibox shipped in a red poly mailer bag

 The box was a rectangle and cute.  It was secured with a ribbon and sticker.

Callibox included an information card with links to all the artists in the box.  I love it when businesses do this!

054

Purse and Pocket Quote Magnet $4.00  The quote on this magnet reads “Liberty, taking the word in its concrete sense, consists in the ability to choose.” Simone Weil  I like this quote and will add it to my magnet collection.

053

Meyer Market Designs $8.00:  There are two card in the box.  One is for birthday and one is a Thank You note.  I like both of these cards, because they can be used for so many people.  I do think $8.00 for two cards is a bit expensive though.

051

Ribbon Bookmarks $4.00:  This was made by the Callibox team.  This wrap around a book to mark your place.  I didn’t know how these work, but they work for all my books I am reading right now, which if you are wondering, is two.

050

For the Love of Suds Lip Balm $3.00 I don’t drink margaritas but I like the smell.  When I put this on, I imagine myself on a nice beach somewhere.

049

JCSpock Flexible Refrigerator Magnet $4.00 This magnet is made on FSC certified and recyclable/eco-friendly photo paper.  The card on the package is also made form recycled material.  This is cute, but I wish there wasn’t two magnets in the same box.

048

Bottle Opener Key Chain $4.00:  This was made by Callibox.  It is a key chain with a flag bottom front.  This is a bit big and I don’t find myself needing a bottle opener on my keys.

047

Whimsical Button Bow Earrings $5.00: These are cute and something I will save for Veterans Day and 4th of July.

046

Handmade In Chico Monthly Quote Magnet $6.96.  The magnet is made on a scrabble tile.  This is really cute and my favorite item in the box.  It says the popular phrase, “Keep Calm and Carry On”.

045

 Final Thought:  The total value of this box is $38.95, which is about double of the cost.  My favorite item is the necklace. I liked the quote magnet and lip balm.  The earrings are cute, but something I would wear for holidays.  I do wish there wasn’t two magnets in the same box and I wish the book marks were a bit larger.  I really like the information card and the websites listed.  If you are interested in Callibox, click HERE
