Fair Treasure Subscription Box Review – January 2015 Hat

Fair Treasure Exclusive Perfect Slouchy Hat – Value $30?

This hat was commissioned by Fair Treasure for the box, and it is very well-made. It is super slouchy/large though – I can’t tell yet if I can pull of the look – and most hats are usually tight on me!

Fair Treasure Subscription Box Review – January 2015 Candles

Thumbprint Artifacts Hand Painted Taper Candles – Value $10

These candles are beautiful (I’m not sure if this item will vary in style from box to box, but I’m thrilled with this blue and white version).

Verdict: I’m estimating on the value of the knitted cap, but I’d say this box has a retail value of about $40 or more. I think these are both really lovely items, and if I don’t end up keeping the cap it will make a wonderful gift.

What do you think of the January Fair Treasure box?

  1. My hat was green and so huge it fell off my head if I moved too fast, so what I did was stitch a line of elastic around the band of the hat about 3 times, just to bring the band in closer a little. It worked great, any fabric store will carry transparent elastic thread. I like that it is merino wool and anchors, it’s very warm and soft. I also got tapers but mine were white on white, very elegant. I felt that my box was worth every penny, even with adjusting the hat.

    • Ok, in my previous comment anchors should have been angora, darn autocorrect.

  2. Because i received a similar hat a few weeks ago in my popsugar box, the timing of this hat is not as ideal as it could have been.

    I wish they would offer a customized box for that price. I’ve been reading the reviews, and thinking of joining, what is stopping me from joining is I dont want to get stuck with one of two items in the box being an item I can not use. If there would be a guarentee at the very least 3 items in the box I might consider signing up. Right now I’ll skip it. I dont like signing up for 3 month plans to get a lower price unless I can customize the box or the value has been at least 50% more then the paid for price. Gifts are great, yet I have to many gifts to give from the boxes i sub to.

    • If anyone wants to swap or sell their hat, I’m always in the market for a good slouchy beanie for cold weather! [email protected]
