ย The Caramel Jar Fleur de Sal Caramels (3) – Value $2

These were so delicious I’m glad they didn’t send more – I would have eaten them all!

Earth Cookie Creations Fancy Clothespins (Set of 6) – Value $4

These are so cute, and the magnets make them extra useful!

To Boldly Fold Mini Note Book – Value $15? (Couldn’t find this anywhere)

This book is really well made with quality materials – I’m a fan!

Verdict: I love everything in this box. I think Umba box is a great way to discover new indie businesses. What did you think of this month’s box?

  1. Hey Liz, I love your blog!! I went to buy the Clothes pins…Loved them and it is actually $12 for each pack of 6 and there are three different patterns to choose from..Thought I would let you know…It does look like at first that you would get all three sets of 6 for $12 but not the case! Keep those reviews coming…Love them!!

    • Scratch that Liz…You know what your doing was wrong!!

  2. A FEW subscription boxes are fun for certain of us, whether the value equals out in dollars or not. I think Liz really likes Umba, whereas I didn’t, at all, except for my first month with them.
    I have decided that I am just not an Etsy- buying type of person. ( NO disrespect meant towards crafts persons). I just don’t have uses for endless candles, soaps, notepaper, cards.. AND I have gotten a ton of those decorated clothes pins and wondered what in the world they were for. I threw mine away. See? Just not on the same page as you and the Umba people, Liz.

    OTOH, I like making things myself. Looking very forward to my subscription to Amazepack after your review. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve weeded a lot of older subs out and am finding 2 new subs to fill every vacancy, LOL. Shop on, power subscribers!


  3. I subscribed to Umba box for one month but didn’t feel that it was worth the amount I paid. You only got $21 worth of products for $30 (after shipping). I wish they would step up the value.
