Rain City Box Subscription Box Review – January 2016
Rain City is a subscription box dedicated to bringing you the very best of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest! My husband is from Oregon, so I thought we would enjoy this subcription box together!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Rain City Box
The Cost: $34.99 / month
The Products: Items from small businesses in Seattle and the Pacific Nortwest, centered around a theme
Ships to: US
This is the info card that was included with this package. It details the items included this month, plus gives a bit of the back story on the businesses that provided them. This month’s theme is “Cheers to the New Year.”
Slouch Beanie by Northwest Riders – Value $22
It’s finally cold enough here to wear a hat like this! This one is really cute, warm, and not itchy at all.
Hide & Seek Bottle by Liberty Bottleworks – Value $23
This is a really cool and handy water bottle, made from recycled aluminum and BPA-free. I also have a thing for Bigfoot. That being said, I can’t imagine ever spending $23 for a water bottle! This is from Liberty’s artist series, which is also cool, plus they have very responsible manufacturing practices. They also give back. I love this company, but I hope they don’t drive away too many customers with their prices!
Decal by Love Your Place – Value $2
These are two paper coasters, a decal, and a business card from LYP, which stands for “Love Your Place.”
Customer Planner by Dangbat Industries – Value $4?
I think I have about seven paper planners for this year, yet still I always want more. This one is cute and simple. Every page has a blank calendar page on one side and a page for notes on the other. I like that layout! You can use each page for one day or a week or a month and then write what you like on the other side. Dangbat Industries’ etsy shop is full of bulk notebooks, so I’m estimating the value.
Sprocket the Comic Cat by Sack Lunch Comics – Value $5
I’m not really into comics, but the kids will love this! I should probably check it first and make sure it’s child appropriate. This is a fairly new comic from North Idaho native Matt Brazee.
Verdict: This was a great box from Rain City! I think they are doing a great job showing off the artists, artisans and small businesses of the PNW. The value of the items in this box totals about $56, which is great for a $35 box. I can’t wait to see what’s coming next month!
