Fairy Garden Chest June 2018 Review
This month’s box included 4 medium-large items, including 1 seasonal Americana themed piece:
On the top of the opened box, there was an insert that simply said that this was the Fairy Garden Chest. The card is blank on the back, and no packing slip was enclosed.
Nutty Nook Fairy House for Miniture Fairy Gardens (WF525) – Retail Value $21.95
I am so excited to add another house to my collection! This seems to be a quality building, is made of a thick resin and features waterproof paint. It measures 7 ¼” H x 5 ½” D x 5 ¼” W.
Featuring a gray stone and “nut” motif – the little squirrel next to the working door seems to be right at home!
This little crate measures 1 ¾” W x 1 ¼” H and is made of metal, with all-weather paint. It has a rustic, old-fashioned flag look and is an adorable addition to a summer fairy garden! My fairy might stick a few acorns in it – we shall see!
Bird Bell Windchime – Retail Value $3.95
This 8” tall windchime certainly won’t keep you up at night! With a shepherd’s crook top, a little metal cardinal perched on top of a flat bell, and leaf detail this is a perfect all-season accessory that will stay where you put it! I like that it adds a bit of height and dimension to all of the other tiny pieces.
Colorful Fence Corner with Birds – Estimated Value $5.98 (buy a set of 3 for $17.95)
I really like the finished look that this corner fence accent gives to my fairy garden. I received a wooden one, with moss detail and a bird accent. It’s adorable on both sides!
And here are the new additions, with some of my old ones. I think the thing that I’m struggling with now is the merchandising aspect – how to make it seem like one cohesive theme. I’m going to continue to think through the best approach to make it look pretty, and not like a random collection. Off to Pinterest, I go!
The Verdict: Fairy Garden Chest remains one of my favorite subscriptions to get because it is just so different from the others. I liked the selection of products, although I would have liked to add another fairy to my collection! If this was your first box, you might have been disappointed to get these items and no fairy to enjoy them! I personally feel they should include a fairy every month, but others may not agree.
Since I could find all 4 items online, the estimated value is $39.38, which is about 8% off the $36.27 box cost ($27.95 + $8.32 shipping to PA). I really love the house this month!
The Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Their billing cycle renews on the 15th of the month and the boxes ship after that. If you sign up today, I believe that your first box will most likely be the July box.
