Art Gallery In A Box Spring 2018 Review
This was my first package from Art Gallery in a Box, and I was really excited to see what was in store for me! My package came with these information pages. They contain details about the artwork and the artisans behind them. It’s really informative and interesting stuff!
“Be Kind” Button by David Gerbstadt – Retail Value $1
Awww, isn’t this sweet? I wore this button to pick up my kids from school right after I got it, and they both noticed it right away! We like it! I think it’s a really nice reminder to always treat others with kindness. The artist, David Gerbstadt, has a really interesting story! He is based in Philadelphia, but has left his works of art all over the world, over 5000 works, free for the taking! A documentary called David Was Here has been made about him, and I plan to watch it when I get a moment.
Abstract Art Print by Amy Lighthall – Retail Value $8
I really like this print! It is exactly my style. I went to Amy Lighthall’s website, and I like a lot of her prints. She is a very prolific artist! She makes great use of white space. She is based out of the Pacific Northwest, and I can see a lot of the naturalistic style in her work that is popular there.
Obvious State Greeting Cards – Estimated Total Value $15 ($5 each)
Obvious State Notebook – Estimated Value $7.99
Neither of these types of products is available on Obvious State’s website, so I did a deep search… I was able to find a similar notebook by them to grab the retail value, but I couldn’t find these greeting cards anywhere! In any case, I think the design on all of these products is very unique and clever. The paper used in the cards and the notebook cover are a nice, heavyweight, and the print quality is outstanding. Plus, I have so many bibliophile friends, I sent all three cards almost immediately. Obvious State is a design company based out of New York. I enjoyed many of the products on their website, including my new most-wanted mug!
Moon and Star Walnut Face Ornaments by Collin Garrity – Retail Value $6
These little ornaments are so cute! They are about 2″ long and 1/8″ thick. They are little trinkets, but they are very nice quality for what they are. They were handmade from walnut by artisan Collin Garrity, a designer based out of St. Louis, Missouri. He focuses on bold, simple designs in his woodworking.
Flying Pig Tote by Eric & Christopher – Estimated Value $35
Of course this is my favorite item in the box! It’s just so whimsical and delightful! The bag (not including the straps) measures about 17″x16″x6″ and is made from a very sturdy cotton canvas. Eric and Christopher are Pennsylvania artisans who paired up their love for screen printing and sewing to make wonderful items like these.
The Verdict: I really enjoyed my first package from Art Gallery in a Box! I feel like everything they sent has a mass appeal, and I usually like my art to be a bit quirky and unique. But, these items were all such high quality and lovely that the mass appeal extended to me. I think the value is also quite good, as I received a total value of about $73 for $50 shipped.
