This box comes with a card detailing the items included.


Bloom Print by Little Low – Value $20

I like the inclusion of a print this month! I’m going to frame it – and I may or may not use it as a Mother’s Day gift. I think it would be a fun spin on the traditional flower bouquet.


Adam Rabbit Pendant – Value $20

I love a gold necklace! I actually have a few pieces similar to this one from a few years ago, though. I think this will be gifed. Fortunately, it is already boxed up and ready to gift!



Urban Oreganics Citrus Lip Butter – Value $12

This lip butter is moisturizing, but it is a little harder than I prefer, so I might end up using it as a cuticle balm instead.



Verdict: This box has a value of about $52. I think that value is pretty good and in line with what I’ve come to expect from Aster Market. For me, this box is most about discovering new independent makers, and getting a box that feels like a curated gift. I think they delivered on both of those parts – this box always feels like it was very thoughtfully put together. (If you are looking for a high-value box, I would not recommend Aster Market).

What do you think of the April Aster Market box?

  1. I love the quality and curation of this box, but the price point is just too high. For a difference of $5, I can just skip the middle man, so to speak, and purchase these items direct from the artist. And not run the risk of paying basically full price on some items I may not want. To me, the benefit of paying for a subscription box is partially in risk/reward. You’re laying out money for potentially receiving a box of things you don’t like, but the “payout” should feel large and worth the risk. I can easily curate my own cart full of products I love when it’s at full price, lol.

    • Not to mention, by cutting out the middle man, the actual artists gets 100% of the profits. Takes your really good “get it myself” point to a great point when you look at it that way.

  2. Art is probably the most personal purchase I make, so I would never be interested in art from a subscription box. Even as a gift, for that matter.

  3. this looks a lot like things I have in my drawer. nice, but nothing to write home about. the print could be good– if it’s silkscreened or embossed, not mass markety stuff.

  4. I like these items…I think I’ll try this one out : )
