This leaflet was included in my package. Inside is some information about the charities that International Blessings currently works with. This month those charities include Ethnic Lanna and Food for the Hungry.
The back of the leaflet includes some information about the items included, plus social media information for International Blessings.
Cross Body Bag
Look at this beautiful cross body bag! I love elephants, so this was an instant hit with me. It’s made of cotton and it’s really roomy. I like the outside pocket, too. The top has a zipper, and the inside is unlined without pockets. International Blessings included some great information on the enclosed leaflet, but there is no mention of who made these items or where they came from, so it is not possible for me to provide values.
Wax Cord Bracelet
This is a very pretty wax cord bracelet. It’s like the mother of all friendship bracelets, isn’t it? It’s very waxy, too – you can mold it into shape, and it holds pretty well! It also has an adjustable cord closure in the back.
Turquoise is about my favorite jewelry in the world, so these little heart-shaped earrings were another instant win for me. Gorgeous!
Leather Belt Ring
What an unusual piece! It’s a miniature leather belt you wear as a ring! That’s amazing! It’s adjustable and everything! I don’t know if you can tell from this picture, but I’m wearing it on my thumb, and it’s not even on the last hole, so this can be adjusted to be quite large.
Verdict: I loved my first package from International Blessings! I especially love the elephant bag! I just wish I knew more about where each item came from and who made these beautiful things. I also can’t really provide a value reference since so little information was given about these items. I can say, however, that I feel like they are well worth the $33 subscription box cost, and it makes me feel great knowing my purchase will be partially given to charity and partially used to support impoverished artisans.
