Quirky Post May 2018 Review
This month’s Quirky Post included another “Featured Artist” insert. May is all about California-based artist Marisa Ravel AKA Lazer Kitten! It offers a lengthy, enthusiastic write-up on her work, background, and inspiration.
One out of the four items in this month’s curation was made by Liz, and it was:
Lazer Kitten Fruit Punch Pin – Retail Value $12.00
This fruit punch pin! I love it. Who doesn’t remember folding their empty Capri Sun pouches in half, pulling the yellow straw out like an antenna and making a pretend cell phone out of it as a kid? It’s so nostalgic and cute! The pin itself is about 1-inch tall, and I’m definitely going to festoon it on my jean jacket.
Iron-On Cheeseburger Patch – Retail Value $2.50
This is a pretty tiny patch, and its value reflects that. It’s about 1.5 inches in diameter, which is a little too small for my patch preferences! The colors are vibrant and the texture is thickly woven and high-quality, which is certainly a plus. I do wish it was larger so it could fit in with other patches I have, which are usually around 3-4 inches in diameter.
Scented Nail Art Stickers – Retail Value $3.05 (RM 12.26)
These were cute! Each sticker is about a quarter-inch tall, so they’re small enough to fit on most nails. I scratched-and-sniffed the cute hot dog sticker and it smells like Pixy Stix, almost. (Which is great in my book—cause who wants their nails to smell like hot dogs?)
Nail stickers aren’t really my style, but I’m sure someone who is into creative nail design would have some fun with these.
Quirky Pink Socks – Estimated Retail Value $3.50
And, last but not least: the pair of socks included in every month’s box!
I wasn’t able to find these socks online, so their value is estimated based off of past Quirky Post sock values. I love these, despite their strange and indescribable print. I’d call her an Alien Queen if I had to label it. They’re a great pink color and I love the turquoise accents! I would definitely wear these with black platform sandals in the summer for a playful, quirky-cool street style vibe.
Verdict: This month’s Quirky Post Box once again served up everything that makes its curation so special: bright colors, bold, independent designs, and charming quirkiness. The fruit punch pin was my favorite, for sure! The patch wasn’t as great as past Quirky Post boxes, but the fact that they included a fourth item (when usually just three are included) made up for that.

At $16.60 for this box, here is what we paid approximately per item:
- Pin: $9.46
