New England Sack shipped my box by FedEx, and came in a large heavy box.
First Look: I was really impressed with this box, from the first look! I loved the sealed information card.
Inside the information card, was a list of everything in the box and where to find the company.
Everything in the box was packed in this cute little drawstring sack.
NH: Wonderful Life Farm Cards $14.00 When I am not blogging, I love taking photos. I can appreciate the art in each of these cards. These are beautiful and much better than any card I could buy in a store. They are black on the inside, so you can personalize them for whoever you give them too. I want to frame these and use them for fall decorations.
Ct: The Primitive Home Wooden Plaque $8.99 This wooden plaque is so cute. I love the wooden/primitive home decor and this will fit in my house perfectly. It is sitting on my green hutch as we speak. This sign was customized just for New England Sack subscribers!
ME: Rand Hill Farms Amelia's Clam Chowda $7.95 This clam chowder mix is from Maine, where they know how to make clam chowder. You just add water and clams and then you have great soup. My husband loved clam chowder and he is very excited to try this.
RI: Kenyon's Grist Mill Apples & Spice Pancake Mix $6.82: If you haven't tried pancakes from a real grist mill, you are missing out. I love fresh pancake mix from a mill. I have never tried favored mixes, and this one sounds great, apples and spice. This is the perfect breakfast on a cold morning. Perhaps I will bring this out tomorrow morning, as the first snow is coming tonight (we think).
MA: New England Cranberry Colonial Cranberry Sauce $6.99 This sauce is made with the same recipe used in the Colonial area. This has real food ingredients, no artificial ingredients and no preservatives.
VT: Couture's Maple Shop Maple Syrup: $3.50: Seeing this in my box, brought back memories. A few years ago, our family took a ski vacation to Vermont and visited this exact company! The had fresh maple syrup you would pour over crushed ice, and it made the best Popsicle. We bought a nice stock of syrup while we were there, and used it up. This stuff is fantastic. It is real maple syrup, and you won't find anything better, or at least I haven't. There was also a small piece of maple candy enclosed, which was promptly eaten.
Final Thought: This box packed a retail value of $48.25, simply amazing for an artisan box. I can tell you, if I found each of these items in a store, I would have bought them. I loved everything in the box and I can't wait to use everything. The plaque is so cute, as are the cards. I loved getting a mix of food items and other household items. This box was fantastic and I was really impressed with the retail value. Remember, this box is only $35.00/month. This would make a fantastic Christmas present. New England Sack packed everything in that you would want in a box: unique items, value, presentation and quality. I am impressed with New England Sack and I look forward to seeing what they come out with in future months. To check out New England Sack, click HERE and use the code livelocal10 to save 10%
