Hair Chalk from Sharee Boutique – Value $5.50

I was pretty excited to see this in the box – hair chalk has been one of those hair trends I’ve always wanted to try, but I think I needed it to literally show up at my door for me to give it a try. This will be fun to try this summer!

Mustache Decals for Nail Art from Make It Stick Design – Value $1

I thought I had seen every mustache product since this mustache trend started a few years ago, but this is by far the cutest! They also offer sunglass decals – I may have to buy some for summer!

Baby Off the Hook Crochet Coffee Cozy – Value $6

Verdict: I love discovering new handmade items and artists on Etsy – but sometimes Etsy can feel a little overwhelming! I love the idea of having a curated box of indie goods send to you each month! What do you think of Dottie Box?

  1. How does the Dottie box compare the Umba box? I just ordered my first one this week. Can’t wait to see what’s in it, I have an etsy obsession, and I’m hoping to discover some new stuff!

  2. I like the variety in this box. I feel like some of the other Indie/handmade boxes I’ve seen only include 2 or 3 items, so I don’t really feel like I’m getting my money’s worth.
