Fair Treasure Subscription Box Review – July

FAIR Treasure is a monthly subscription service for women that sends you ethically sourced goods from around the globe each month. FAIR Treasure kindly sent me this box to review.

The Subscription Box: FAIR Treasure

The Cost: $30 a month plus shipping (Free shipping with 3 month plan)

The Products: Each box will contain at least $30 in retail value of ethically sourced treasures. Typically, your treasure box will contain 2-3 items.

Fair Treasure Subscription Box Review – July 2014 Cards

Fair Treasure includes a card with each item that gives you the background on the maker and the fair trade practices involved in producing the item.

Fair Treasure Subscription Box Review – July 2014 Pouch

Zen Zen Garden & Home Cosmetic Case/Clutch – Value $15

This pouch is beautifully made and lined on the inside with fabric.

Fair Treasure Subscription Box Review – July 2014 Scarf

World Finds Color Block Scarf – Value $25?

This is my favorite item this month and possibly of all time from Fair Treasure! I love the bold blue colors, and it’s a great lightweight scarf for summer. I think I will be wearing this scarf a lot in the next few months!

Verdict: Based on my estimates, this box has a value of about $40. As always, I think this box provides a value beyond just the retail prices of the products since you get to support fair trade and learn about makers across the world.

What do you think of the July Fair Trade box?

  1. Just a warning to anyone thinking about subscribing to this box- their customer service is awful.
    I sent an email requesting to cancel, and ended up having to send seven emails, post on their fb page, and send a message on Facebook over the course of three weeks before I got a response. I was also charged again during that period. When they finally responded they did refund the charge, but this month again I was charged. I had to file a dispute with my bank and cancel that card to get the charges to stop.
    I’m all for supporting artisans in foreign countries who wish to better themselves. I have a degree in non profit organizations, two in the arts, and I’ve worked for non profits here and abroad. There’s other places you can spend your money to receive fair trade items. Ten Thousand villages is a great non profit, and most of the items from this subscription are actually sourced from there.
    Just know what you’re getting into before you subscribe with fair treasure.

    • OMG. That sounds like a nightmare.

    • Some banks can put a stop to recurring charges from one particular source without changing the card number. I had to do this before (thankfully, just once).

    • They do not auto renew so I am having trouble understanding how you could have an issue with them regarding cancellation and continuing to charge your credit card.

      • I was wrong. The month to month does auto renew. I always get the three month which does not auto renew. I just assumed they were the same. My bad.

  2. I love the Fair Trade subscription box. I received a black clutch and the colors in my scarf are turquoise and yellow. I especially like reading about where the products come from and the story of the artisans. I know people are hesitant to try a “could be anything” box, but I have always found a good home for items I couldn’t personally use. It also makes me feel good by helping to create a market for these hand-crafted items.

  3. Until a few days ago, I could read the entire post in my email…Now it just gives me a paragraph and then a link to the website for the whole article….What changed? I much preferred reading it from my email and not having to click a link to a website (which is banned at work, so I can’t even see it anyway.)

  4. That scarf is amazing and I like that clutch, I may have to hope that someone posts that scarf in swaps, might get me to try it out for the first time, haha!

  5. Please, please, please go back to full view on RSS feeds!!! I use a blog reader to keep up with your posts daily, and I SO look forward to them! However, I just don’t have time to click over from the blog reader to read full blog posts. If you don’t have your full post on the reader, I won’t get to see it! Please don’t make me go find another subscription review blog to read instead – I’d rather read yours! PRETTY PLEASE bring back the full view for RSS feeds!!!!

    • Hi Stacy,

      We were playing around with feed display because of the potential NSFW post we just did for The Fantasy Box. We’ll try to fix it though. Sorry about that! Thanks for letting me know!

      • I second Stacy’s comments…

      • I wasn’t able to read the fantasy review either, and I am on a desk top. Granted, I’m at work, so I think it’s IE from the 80’s, but I wasn’t able to read it.

      • Thanks so much for the quick response, Liz! I love your blog and reading it a feed just makes it so much easier. 🙂

      • Hi Liz,
        I still can’t see the full article in my RSS feeds. Not sure if you knew it was still like that or not. Thanks for helping out!

        • I think we should have it fixed by tomorrow! 🙂

    • Hi Stacy, can you please tell me what the RSS feed is? thank you very much, Michelle

      • Hi Michelle – I am using feedly right now. I used to use Google Reader, but it got shut down. Still trying to find a suitable replacement, but feedly does ok.
