Aster Market August 2015 Review + Coupon
Disclosure: I received this box for review.
Aster Market is a brand new artisan subscription box that sends “exceptional small-batch products” from all over the world, in their monthly subscriptions. Month to month subscriptions are $39.95 plus $7.00 shipping. Items can come from a number of different categories like: home dÃ©cor, jewelry, accessories, paper goods, bath products and more.
They also give back, which I love. 25% of their net profits go to a non-profit, and best of all, you can choose. Below is a list of all the categories you can choose from.
Cost: $39.95/month, Longer subscriptions available.
Shipping: $7.00/month. You get free shipping for a 6 or 12 month subscription.
What's in the box? Each month you will get at least two exceptionally made products from all over the world designed to ” ignite conversation and add that special touch to your life! “
Aster Market shipped in a plain white box, with their sticker on the front. I liked they made special note the box as fragile. The front of the box reads “The box that complements your everyday!
First Look: I love it when boxes make a special effort to package their products in an attractive way. The thank you card is for trying the box.
There was an information card with information on the brand and a bit about each product. I would have loved the urls for the products too.
Parris Chic Boutique Totebag $14.00 This tote is made of 100% cotton and it is hand lettered with calligraphy by the owner Alyssa Thiel. If I had to write on a tote, it would look like a first grader did it. I love this!
Produce Candle in Peach $20.00 I have received a Produce candle in another box and I love how much they fill the room with scent. This is a seasonal scent, only available in summer. It's made with natural soy wax and is supposed to “evoke fuzzy feelings”.
Ruff House Art Greeting Cards $5.00 each ($10.00 total) Each card is printed on 100% cotton paper and hand pressed with a vintage hand-operated letterpress. I really enjoy sending greeting cards, these are blank on the inside, so they can be personalized with a special message. The bottom card says ” I love you more than coffee….most days”, very cute.
Final Thought: The total value of this box was $44.00, which is right about the cost of the box ($46.95 w/shipping). I found the value to be right in line with most artisan subscription boxes. I love the hand lettering on the tote and the candle smells amazing. If you love artisan subscription boxes, this is one to check out.
