GlobeIn October 2015 Box Spoiler #2 + Coupon

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

GlobeIn October 2015 Theme

The theme for the upcoming GlobeIn October 2015 Box is… Cozy! More from GlobeIn:

It’s no surprise that the word cozy comes to us from Northern Europe where the winters are long and dark. Coziness is in all the ways the opposing warmth, whether it be soft fabrics, warm lit rooms, hot drinks that tingle down the throat, gatherings with family and friends, or indulging in something sweet before bed.

No matter where you live, fall is a time of year when the light deepens and we all crave to curl up into the season. Your October basket covers the whole constellation of cozy…

And here is the latest spoiler item:

Each Cozy Artisan Box will come with a Fair Trade Scarf by Marquet (Retail $22).

Your scarf is made in Thailand by the members of the Ton Fai, or “Cotton Tree” artisan group, who weave products on a traditional hand-built loom using 100% locally-grown cotton. Whereas many rural Thai are forced to leave their families and seek work in the city to earn a secondary income, the weavers work on their craft between harvesting and planting season, integrating it into their farming lifestyle. Picture your scarf being woven by neighbors working together against the backdrop of their idyllic mountainside home.

And in case you missed the first spoiler:

Each Cozy Box will come with a hand-painted mug by Le Souk Ceramique. (Retail: $15).

The beautiful mug comes from Nabeul, a city on the Mediterranean coast of northeastern Tunisia and the center of Tunisian pottery. Your mug’s skillfully painted lines evoke the air of peace, prosperity, and teamwork embodied by modern Tunisians.

This is no ordinary mug: much bigger in size than mass-produced pieces and lovingly covered by intricate Tunisian designs, it has potential to become much more than your go-to hot drink vessel! Display it as your kitchen’s art statement or add a small flower and use it as a mini vase.

FYI – both items may vary in color/pattern: 4 colors options for scarves and mugs will come in different colors/patterns. All mug patterns will incorporate traditional Tunisian designs.

What do you think of the latest spoiler?

  1. This looks like much more of a functional, keep-me-warm-when-it’s-cold scarf than the decorative scarves we get in other boxes. I’m on the verge of being scarfed out. But this one I look forward to using!

  2. This will be my first benefit box! It’s been on my wishlist for a while. When I saw the theme for October I jumped and I’m so happy I did. I love both spoiler items! Super excited.

  3. This scarf looks like it would be an everyday useful one. Does anyone know what the color varitions will be?

  4. Coupon code isent working for me ?

  5. I love both of the spoilers…great theme at the right time of the year. This is one of my favorite subscriptions! And the scarf looks very different from the others I have received in other boxes. This one looks like you might be able to use it as a shawl too! Hope I get good colors for both spoilers!

  6. I just cancelled my benefit basket after 3 months because I wasn’t impressed for the price, so of course, they have a great artisan basket this month. Guess I’m signing up again.

  7. I’ve been wanted to subscribe to this box forever, and this month’s theme finally pushed me to do it! I can’t wait to get this box.

    • Hi Sam, those are my exact thoughts about this box. I have been waiting and waiting but the theme and the two spoilers hooked me right in. That scarf looks fantastic!

  8. This box looks amazing so far!

  9. Now through 9/30 coupon code “FREEBOX” gets you 1 month free with a 3 month sub which brings it to $22/box. I’m tempted to get a couple for Christmas gifts like some people have suggested.

    • Thanks!!

    • Today is 9/25 and the code does not work — the error code says “This coupon is no longer valid. It is expired.”

  10. True, but this one is appropriate for the season, in a box with a theme that it works with, and appears to be one that could be used for fashion or function. I think for those reasons it’s a good box choice. Though for me, I’m not burned out on scarves in general yet.

  11. I think I don’t mind another scarf because a) it fits the theme b) it’s a good cause and c) it’s much different from those thin little scarves we get from popsugar over and over!

  12. I’ve actually not gotten scarves in any other boxes (I’m relatively new to this addiction though…) so I’m excited about this one. But I definitely get what you’re saying. I think it’s the whole theme of “cozy” that does it for me. I want to live that picture. lol

    • I’m one of the ones who’s excited about this scarf, and I’ve not complained about getting scarfs in other boxes. I think you need to look and see if any of the people who have complained are excited about this one — different people like different things; you can’t generalize and say “gee, people aren’t excited about scarfs except this one”.

  13. Now I think I have to have this box. Time to resubscribe.

    • Seriously. I just cancelled my benefit basket after 3 months because I wasn’t impressed for the price, so of course, they have a great artisan basket this month. Guess I’m signing up again too.

  14. It just gets better and better. . .

  15. Looks cozy! I’m seriously considering signing up for a second box so I can get a set of mugs and gift the second scarf.

  16. Oooh. I really want this box. If I can’t make use, I can definitely gift for Christmas!! Now the dilemma is a one month or 3 month subscription??

  17. Nice!!!
