Boats at Dawn Notecards from Nana’s Mountain Farm – Value  $6

These cards are so beautiful (and a tad spooky) I might frame them instead of using them as notecards.

 

Verdict: For me, this has been the best Umba box so far – both the items and the value were excellent. What do you think of Umba Box?

  1. I had to go to the site to see how much this sub cost. I don’t think what you received is a good value for $25 (plus shipping!. The “retail” value they gave you for those items are only worth that much if someone’s willing to spend that much on them. In the real world, at least in the stores I shop at, a pack of 4 note cards with a pretty picture on them is not worth $6 and a 5×7 watercolor is only worth $12 if Babe Ruth signed it. Then you say this was your BEST box yet.

    I guess this is why there are a gazillion types of subscription boxes out there now, so there’s something for everyone!

  2. Sure, the necklace is adorable, but too much paper. I would open this and say, ‘Hey, what happened to my box?’

  3. I think i need that necklace! Badly!!!

  4. I can’t justify getting an Umba Box. Maybe as a one time thing, I’d be into it. I like this box though.
