A-6 Small Comalapa Coin Bag - $10.00?
Since the site that these items are from is wholesale only, I can't retrieve pricing information for the review, so I'm going to do my best to guess!
This is a really nicely made coin purse. It's fully lined, and the fabric is vibrant and colorful. It is woven, so the fabric will pull eventually if it's in my purse, but I really like it! It feels like a souvenir that was personally purchased for me from a friend's trip, and I love the principles that back Lucia's Imports.
Beaded Bracelet - $20.00?
This beaded bracelet, is almost what I would consider a cuff. It is beautifully beaded, and since it's multi colored it would go with most everything! The size is probably a bit small - I have smaller than average wrists, and it probably would only go around a wrist one inch larger than mine. In any case, it is beautiful!
Rock Candy Earrings - $15.00?
I received the black rock earrings. They're very pretty, and about an inch long. I do not have pierced ears, but these (and the bracelet) came in a nice jewelry box, ready for gifting! I know I have a few friends that would appreciate these!
Verdict: Obviously, all of the values are estimated, but I did try to do research to find similar items and I estimated as closely as I could to the actual item. I want to do this box justice, since they have a great cause, and I like what they're doing! The value I came up with for this box is around $45, or if you make a value judgement based on the items divided by the cost of the box, each item would have cost you around $11.00. I think it's a great value for the cost, when you take into account that this box is sourcing items from poverty stricken communities, and giving $3 of each box back to a cause they choose each month. I really liked this box, and am eager to see what they do for the next few months!
