Unfortunately during this process (I had to unwrap all the little packages and put them in a separate bag) I'm not sure what items belong to what businesses, so I am posting pictures but won't go into a more thorough description of them. Though, some of the pictures have the company identified on the label and there is also a list on their website of all the companies that participated in this month's box,
|October Out of the Box sampler|
|Opening it up|
|Soaps, sugar scrub and wax melt|
|Wax melt, bath tea and lotion|
|Decals, bottlecap fridge magnet, "Boo" earrings (these are cute, I wore them out to a Haunted Walk around|
the city), eyeshadow (light purple and sparkly - very nice), pin.
|I LOVE this! It's a cute little witch decoration :)|
|Picture cards and car air freshener|
|The edibles bag: tea and candy ;)|
Because of this experience, I have an important suggestion for handmade businesses. If you scent your products, PLEASE do not go overboard with the scent. It's just overwhelming for the consumer and also not really fair to the other businesses participating in a sampler box like this, as it will overpower their products as well. Also, if you compile sampler boxes and notice that a business has sent in samples that are way too smelly, PLEASE don't include them with the sample boxes. It just ends up making the entire box smell like that one product, and again, is not good for all the other businesses in that box. It also makes many of the edibles virtually inedible!
