the tethered crate review.

There are a ton of subscription box services out there. From beauty products to styling boxes, even 'green' cleaning products and mommy-friendly products. You name it, you can find a subscription box for it. And you know what? It works-- because who doesn't love snail mail? There's something about seeing a little package waiting for me on my front porch that gives me a thrill. (Yes, a thrill. Sometimes I even squeal, just a tiny bit.)

Anyway, I get a lot of emails about new subscription services coming out, but I was especially giddy about this particular service. The Tethered Crate is all about supporting and spreading love for the handmade world. For just under 20 bucks each month, subscribers get over $40 worth of handmade goodies. Here's what I got in my box this month--

Turban headband from The Poppy Chain
Headband from Suzie Studios
Knit earrings from Sarah Nade
5x7 print from Not Too Shabby

I'm super excited about the headbands that came in my box. I'm a headband girl and I love trying different styles-- like the turban style. Mostly this is great because I now have cute new accessories to distract from the fact that I desperately need a haircut. The knit earrings from Sarah Nade are also adorable. At first I was like, 'Hm, not sure they're my style', but as soon as I slipped them in, I was totally feeling them. I also love that the box comes with enough goodies to keep some and send some along to a friend. I'm planning on slipping this print from Not Too Shabby into my neighbors' mailbox this week as I know it's something she would love. 

If you're looking to try out this whole subscription box thing, The Tethered Crate is a great place to start! My friends, Jessi and Megan are working hard to bring you some of the freshest handmade goodies around! Oh, and a portion of the proceeds each month go to a designated charity, so basically, you should just go join now. 

PS. I just picked the Feral Watches giveaway winner! Almost 350 entries! Congrats to Amber Fussel! Emailed ya, girl!
