Rain City Box Subscription Box Review – March 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 “PNW Flavors Box – Seattle Style!”
Belltown Gus Print – Value $5?
Cassie Graus is a Seattle artist who mainly draws cats, but she took it upon herself to come up with a series of neighborhood mascots for the Seattle Area. This is Belltown Gus. I love the idea, but all her mascots are a little disturbing! Is it just me? Anyway, I did find this print online, but in a larger size, so I am estimating the value.
Smoky BBQ Rub – Value $6.50
I can’t believe it’s almost grilling season already! But have you ever heard of Seattle barbecue? I tend to think of Memphis, Louisville, Texas, North Carolina… This will be interesting!
Skillet Original Bacon Spread – Value $6?
Bacon Jam? Yes please! My mouth is seriously watering just thinking about what to write about this. I think it was originally formulated to top the burgers at Skillet’s restaurant, but they also suggest trying it on french toast. I couldn’t find this size on their website, so this is an estimate based on other sizes.
Cookie Cutter by ENGRIt4U – Value $3?
I wish they had included cookies instead of a cookie cutter. I’m no good at baking! Fortunately, they included a recipe for sugar cookies also. The cookie cutter is supposed to make cookies from Dick’s restaurant, so I guess that must be a Seattle thing?
This month’s package was also supposed to include a tee from Marination Station, but I got this note saying that my size is on backorder. They didn’t want to hold up my box, so they will send it along in a week or two.
Instead they sent me…
Townie Shades – Value $24.99
This color scheme is exclusive to Rain City subscribers! How awesome! The lenses are actually highly reflective, so I had to black them out a bit in the first picture because they reflected everything in my house. I love the Seattle skyline on the sides! So fun!
Verdict: Another 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 $45, which is good for a $35 box, and of course the value will be much better when I get my shirt in the next few weeks. I can’t wait to see what’s coming next month!
