  1. I have been 90% happy with all of my Globe In purchases. The quality is always so much better in real life, compared to the internet pictures. I have a pitcher that is so delicate (not from Globe In), if you sneeze on it wrong I swear it will break. I’m sure the Globe In pitcher will be properly sturdy and pretty too.

  2. That is one tiny pitcher! So cute but 9″ by 9″??

  3. I’m super excited about this one. I’ve been anxiously waiting for that pitcher to show up since they posted a video spoiler awhile back showing them being made. It will go perfect with the swirl tumblers I already have!

  4. This kinda looks like stuff you can get at TJMaxx for like $5.

    • There is a comment like this on every Globein spoiler. That may absolutely be true but these are handmade pieces by artisans who are provided a fair wage around the globe. You get a booklet with the artisan stories and Globein often posts videos and pictures of the people making these pieces online. There was a video spoiler of these pitchers being made awhile back…handblown and formed. I often find these are much better quality pieces than you would find at any discount store and, in addition to that, you know you are helping actual people in need earn a living and not some large corporate mass produce disposable items.

      • I get your point BUT “This kinda looks like stuff you can get at TJMaxx for like $5” still applies.

      • What you say might be try but since you are getting this in a subscription box how much do you think the artisan is gonna make off this hand blow 50 dollar pitcher. Are you helping them. I wonder if they are getting paid for their hard work.

        • GlobeIn in a member of the Fair Trade Federation in which there are many practices you must meet to be accepted. They pay the artisans an ethical, fair wage. And they often provide feedback on what your purchase means to the artisans — employed x number of people for so long, purchased healthcare for x number of people, etc. And as I mentioned before they provide a booklet with pictures of the actual people and try to sustain a relationship by restocking boxes later or offering items for sale in the shop. They make many repeat purchases from what I’ve noticed in my few years of membership and following so it’s not just a one time cash flow and then leave. Do the artistans get paid $50 for that pitcher? I’m sure not. Someone has to pay for the shipping, work it takes to plan this all out, Globein employees and they are not a non-profit. However I guarantee is likely more that many people overseas working in sweatshops to make cheap trinkets found in discount stores earn…which is why you can buy those items for $5 instead.

          • I agree LB! I can’t speak for others, but I don’t subscribe to this subscription box looking for a steal/deal. This one is choosen based on their mission to help others and I believe they are.

    • Yeah but that’s often the problem with GlobeIn.

      • For me, though, the problem is not with the business that buys its inventory from places that pay their workers a livable wage to work with ethically sourced materials in decent working conditions. The problem is with the stores that sell merchandise from sweatshops that barely pay the workers anything. I do hate how holier-than-thou it feels to say that, but it’s like people miss the point of this entirely…yes, everybody knows cheap merchandise from sweatshops is everywhere.
