Whimsey Box Review – Craft Subscription Box – July 2013
About a year ago I signed up for a 3-month subscription to Whimsey Box. The first box I received was right after they upped the cost of the box from $15 to $25, and I wasn’t happy with the quality of materials in the box. (Or the cost of the box). I reached out to Whimsey Box to let them know that I was disappointed in the value and quality of the box, and that I wanted to cancel the rest of my 3-month subscription. I was pleasantly surprised that they immediately wrote back, apologized, cancelled my subscription and refunded me for the entirety of the subscription.
So, after that one experience I wasn’t very happy with the contents of the box and the price, but I was very impressed with their customer service. Since this happened, they lowered the cost of their boxes from $25 back down to $15, and from what I can tell the quality of materials has improved as well. I decided I had to give them another chance – I resubscribed!
The Box: Whimsey Box
The Cost: $15
Coupon: Use coupon code SUMMERLOVIN to get your first box 50% off! (expires 7/31)
The Products: ach box has all the materials and instructions you need to make a DIY project.
This month’s project is a DIY dyed tote bag. This looks like something I will actually use and it seems easy enough to make!
Along with the instructional card, Whimsey Box has more detailed instructions, inspiration and technique advice on their website.
Verdict: I was very happy with the contents of this box. (I also love the packaging!) This canvas tote is a high-quality material, and they’ve included everything else needed to make my own one-of-a-kind tote! If we finally have some nice summer weather this weekend, I will definitely be making this project out on the porch!
Do you subscribe to Whimsey Box? What do you think of it? I was not of fan of the box I received in 2012, but so far my Whimsey Box experience in 2013 is great! I’m glad I resubscribed!
