  1. I really don’t get where the Grand Canyon theme fits the contents. The vase was the only tie in and the star item of this box… the hat and tassel were giveaway items for me. I fully understand the covid challenges but this is no longer an appealing box. I want to be excited about this subscription but it’s becoming more and more difficult.

  2. The newsletter really helps me to understand a bit of the frustrations being experienced by Kevia and her team during these difficult times. I have adjusted my expectations and really looking forward to this box and finding out what the other surprises may be. Thank you Kevia for the update and extra items to be included in this box.

  3. Now this is interesting — I haven’t received an email or newsletter and was getting antsy about the delay. So I logged into my account and the Grand Canyon box I paid for on May 13 is now, under the same order number, called “JourneeWell Family Monthly Subscription”. Does anyone else see the same wording?

    I might actually enjoy getting *one* JourneeWell Family Monthly box in place of the Grand Canyon box, especially if it can be sent in July! However, I’m quarterly and cancelled future JourneeBoxes. (Overdid it with subscriptions, but perhaps I’ll sign back up closer to the time the Zero Waste box is ready to ship.)

    From the looks of that Family Monthly box on Facebook, the sanitizing items would last me an entire year, and I definitely couldn’t use a continuing subscription. (Also, it’s been impossible so far for me to find a complete description of what is *in* this JourneeWell box, and its retail value. I keep getting a privacy error every time I try to visit the new website.)

    I placed orders from the store earlier this year and had outstanding service then, but this is disconcerting. I hope it works out well in the end.

    • Hi,

      This is definitely an error, we will get this fixed with the subscription company on Monday. Apologies.

    • Please contact us an email or order number so we can clear this up on Monday. Happy 4th.

      • I will do that now. Happy 4th to you, as well!

  4. Anyone else a little confused by the Journeebox summer box email update? The tassel that was spoiler #4 now replaces the terracotta vase and it says the straw hat was added so quarterly members get 8 items ( including the bonus wipes). So now the box includes 1. earrings, 2.water bottle, 3. straw hat and 4.suede tassel, plus bonus wipes make 5 items. Annual and quarterly will get three more mystery items ( one of which, based on past boxes will be a food item) plus annuals will get a bonus item that will not be revealed until July 17th. Boxes will not start shipping until August 15th. Understand that Covid has slowed everything down and created many obstacle for small businesses, but already the winter box was skipped completely and now summer box will not be recieved until end of August, early, September. I have one more box after the Grand Canyon on my prepaid annual starting last fall that is going to end up being more like a 15 to 16 month, 4 box subscription. Have enjoyed my previous boxes, hope they are able to survive these turbulent times.

  5. Just got a long email about the continuing delay for this box. Many legitimate reasons due to COVID.

    Also: …”cut the terracotta vase from the box and replace it with a suede and gemstone tassel necklace… In recognition of our inability to ship on time, I added the straw hat to the box so that Quarterly members get 8 items (two extra including the wipes) and annual members will have 9 items You have my deepest apology, an updated schedule is below:

    Customization and add-on open July 15th
    The current start ship for the box is August 15th
    Annual member spoiler item released July 17th
    Quarterly subscribers billed July 24th
    Annual member renewal, if due, July 30th”

    • I just made it through the email too… I’ve got to admit that I’m pretty disappointed about the vase. I’ve actually liked it since I first saw it! While I realize that many things are beyond the company’s control, I wish this had been presented differently. Spoilers 5 and 6 were posted as something we were getting in addition to the vase, and I was happy with them in that light. In the email, it sounds like they’ve known this would be a problem for a while, but are only letting us know now that the hat and lariat are instead of the vase… which makes it feel like a let down for me. I still look forward to the box, just without my favorite spoiled item to date.

      • My thoughts exactly.

      • I agree. I have no interest in the hat (it’s not going to fit my enormous head) or lariat, and would have at least liked the vase. I wish I could skip this box altogether and get the next one.

      • I feel this, too. The vase was my favorite part and I was so looking forward to it! Then I saw the hat and tassel as spoilers and wasn’t excited for these at all, but thought that the vase was a win so the hat and tassel being duds (for me) wasn’t a big deal… then to hear that the hat and tassel replaced the vase… I feel disappointed but more so I feel tricked. I appreciated the email from Kevia explaining everything but I think she really nailed it for me when she said she screwed up by not being upfront sooner – I feel deeply disappointed, deceived, disenchanted… but I do respect this level of honesty. I’ll be interested in hearing what the other items are and how they are planning for the next box in light of these struggles.

      • The vase was announced as spoiler #4 a month ago and customer service commented under that MSA post that the Grand Canyon box would begin shipping in July. Find it odd that they would not even have started production on an item that is to be shipped out in one month. Seems as if Journeebox has been putting all their time and production focus into their new mask and hand sanitizer subscriptions. If the box does start shipping by August 15th that is over five months since the last box of my annual (advertised as quarterly) shipped. So the vase is not included now because of “production delays in drying times” just doesn’t sit right to me when they have had 3 1/2 months to date since their last box shipped plus another month and a half before this box even starts shipping. Guess it takes months for clay vases to dry!

  6. Best box. But website management is mediocre at best, which even though they have apparently a new company, isn’t cutting it for customers. Kevin’s work deserves better representation (agree on the flashing pics…) and more communication for a box that is worth every penny and more!

    • Sorry about autocorrect. Kevia!

  7. Its a cute box but doesn’t really represent the Grand Canyon to me. Its an odd array of items. When I think of spending long days hiking in the Canyon – this isn’t the type of Headwear that would be practical, a straw hat is for the beach. None of these items except the design on the wet wipes box strikes me as very Southwestern and none of it is indicative of Grand Canyon.

  8. Cute hat. I’m happy so far and can’t wait to make my choices!

  9. Does anyone know when we can start customizing our boxes?

    • Hey Monica,

      We know everyone is curious about customization. We will be sending out a newsletter to our subscribers within the next few days to update everyone on the status of the Grand Canyon Box with exact dates for customization and shipping!

      Best,
      CS

      • I haven’t yet received a newsletter or email regarding customization. I have been checking here daily for updates. It would be nice if your website could give us some information about when customization will open.

        I signed up for an annual in late October. I have received two boxes which I have LOVED. I am torn about renewing because I do not like your website which doesn’t communicate anything regarding upcoming boxes. I was excited to receive timely spoilers for this next box, but the waiting for the next piece of info drives me crazy.

      • And “a few days” in customer expectation doesn’t work out to over a week. I’m pulling for this box big time!

      • I am anxiously awaiting the newsletter!!

  10. Am I the only one that hates that flashing picture that doesn’t allow actual viewing of the product? SMH

  11. Don’t know if next box will be considered fall or late summer? Got summer box seasonal last year then upgraded to annual and recieved my fall box in late October. Next box, Quindao, arrived in late March. Seems Journeebox is no longer going by a true seasonal schedule, which isn’t a problem for me…I’m happy as long as I get all four! Have enjoyed them all thus far.

    • I think Journeebox is technically more seasonal than other boxes in the sense that the first day of summer just happened and they’re getting ready to send out the summer boxes. Most subs ship way ahead of the actual season and I think that’s what we’ve gotten used to, but “technically” summer just started.

    • I just had an exchange with JourneeBox as I was also confused. This Grand Canyon box is actually the “SPRING” box. I also signed up for a year starting with last summer’s box (with the tunic). After that was Jaipur and then Qingdao. So this is my 4th box. I assume things have been held up as with the pandemic.

      • Hello All!

        JourneeBox is actually moving away from the seasonally named and themed boxes.

        However, the Grand Canyon Box will technically be our summer release.

        Hope that clears things up,
        CS

      • To Customer Service: I hope this is not true since that is what attracted me to Journeebox.. The themes all over the world is the reason I subscribed.

      • Hello All,
        We are moving away from the seasonal names because it is causing a lot of confusion. Grand Canyon is the “summer box”. Our schedule is not in sync with other quarterly boxes because our first box shipped January 2019 instead of December 2018. In 2019 we shipped 4 boxes. Qingdao (the spring box for 2020, shipped April. Summer box is Grand Canyon, which was scheduled to start shipping July 15th (this is when we shipped the “summer box” last year). We are experiencing delays on every aspect of the box. I have held off on contact because I wanted to have definitive dates, however given the feedback here that was the wrong decision. I apologize and understand your frustration. Customization will open July 15th. The product packaging is so beautiful and the quality of products is inline with what we always do. There are also some questions about the Zero Waste box, specifically how it ties into our travel theme. This box will feature items that represent how various countries are minimizing waste and the use of petrol plastic specifically. The countries represented so far include Sweden, Japan, and Vietnam. It is our first multi-country box. I will expedite the formal Grand Canyon box update email so that it goes out today. Apologies again.
        Take care,

        Kevia

  12. Hoping the hat and lariat have some people wanting to swap them, I love them but have no use for any of the other items… 🤞🤞 ps I have bumbum 😛

    • Mine will be going up for swap 🙂

      • I’ll keep an eye out!

  13. I am a relatively new subscriber, having only received one box. I do find the quality to be high, and the careful curation is definitely a factor I’m looking for. That said, this box could not be further from anything I would use (or don’t have multiples of) or have in my home. I’m wondering if it’s possible to skip a box?

    • Hi Maria,

      Subscribers always have the option to skip a box. Just log into your account to manage your subscription or contact us and we would be happy to help!

      CS

  14. I love everything southwest which is what drew me try Journee box.. Does anyone know when we can expect to get the email where we would get to make choices?

    • Hi Janet,

      Keep an eye out for our newsletter in the next few days. This will give you all the updates about the Grand Canyon Box including when customization will be opening!

      Thanks,
      CS

  15. I absolutely love this subscription. I cannot say it enough.

    I am stealing a comment from one of the best MSA quotes I’ve seen. I can’t remember who said it and I am paraphrasing from memory.

    Journee Box feels like it was curated by a well travelled friend.

  16. Does anyone know where the products are made? Is the vase actually made in AZ?

    • I would not be surprised if Kevia made it herself.

      Journee Box boasts ethically made sustainable products delivered to your door.

      You can email their customer service. They are amazing!!

    • Jen, in this box’s 4th spoiler’s comments section, Kevia posted some information about the box and its contents that you might be interested in reading. I copied this part, but there is a lot more info in the original post:

      “Our sourcing with a Navajo nation business for the box was disrupted by COVID-19, but even these items were based on native plants and agriculture. Without the input and partnership from Native people I was not comfortable moving forward with culturally specific designs. In the packaging we do however use some patterns that are inspired by both regional art and geographic terrain.”

  17. I love the style of this hat, but I have an extra-large head and thick hair — I’ve never tried on a women’s one-size-fits-all hat that fit me. I’m determined to wear this one, though, and I saw that there are kits for adding chin straps to straw hats. If I did that, at least it wouldn’t fall or blow off. Has anyone tried doing this to a hat; and can you recommend the best method?

    • I have the opposite problem. Hats are often so big on me that they fly right off my head in the smallest breeze. I might try to find a way to add a chin strap also.

  18. I received an email with the spoilers on Friday and I’m still on the fence about this box.

  19. in case you didn’t see it in the top photo: use

    SUMFUN2020 for $10 off a new sub!

  20. This is SOOOOoooo far from my personal style…and I’m honestly super excited! I would NEVER buy these things for myself, so this feels like it’s broadening my horizons haha.

    Totally nerding out about all the different ways I could customize this hat…

  21. I will use almost everything in this box so far – except the earrings which are more my sister’s style. I love how subscription boxes help me “shop” for gifts lol. The hat is nice and timely as my current one is looking a bit worn from working outside in the garden. – I will use this one for the beach! 😉

  22. I was curiously awaiting the comments on this post, and it appears I’m an outlier. That hat/lariat is a hard no for me, although I can appreciate that others would love it. I’m not a hat person and definitely not a big floppy hat person. But I do really like the remainder of the box. Obviously this is the chance we all take with sub boxes, that we may or may not personally like something in the box. I guess I’m just a little bummed since it’s my first box. Ah well, I will swap or gift the hat/lariat and enjoy the rest. I’m still excited about this sub and have been so happy with how responsive and helpful CS has been.

    • Haha, it is funny. 🙂 The only things I like in the box so far are the hat and the lariat. I adore floppy hats and my most beloved one could use replacing. Sadly, can’t bring myself to splurge on this box for only the hat and the lariat.

    • @Sherri… I’m with you … hard no… will wait to see what the fall box brings!!! 😊

  23. (Sighs) Kevia curates her boxes to perfection.
    (squeals with delight) I lived in Tucson and this is spot on 💕

  24. This will be my first box. If I recall correctly from what I’ve been received in emails, choice will be an option in email, but will that also be when the Add Ons will become available? I’d like to look at Add Ons as soon as those are available. Add Ons are always fun.

    • For add-ons you have the chance to add both variation of the choice items. For instance, both pair of earrings or more than once color water bottle. They aren’t different items.

    • I’ve received two boxes so far and last quarter was the first time I did add-ons. I don’t remember if the variations for choice items were part of the add-ons, but I did add-on an earing set that was from a prior box. The earings were discounted as part of the add-ons.

  25. I think this hat is great! It’s a wonderful summer item, and I do need to replace my hats from time to time due to wear and tear. I also like that we can modify it with the lariat for a different look. I really enjoy that I feel like a different sort of woman when I wear the items from each Journeebox (cuff and blouse from the French box, scarf and necklaces from the Chinese box, just as examples) yet each box makes me happy. The more I see of this box, the more I understand its cohesion, and the more I look forward to it.

  26. I love this box a lot, but really wish that they didn’t always have earrings. When you don’t have pierced ears, it is frustrating to see earrings in every box. But overall, it is amazing, as is their customer service.

    • Agreed. Would be nice to have an alternative. It’s The main reason I’m not signing up for this box.

  27. Journeebox is my absolute favorite sub and I love the curation. Just some feedback for Kevia though – sending out a summer hat in July is a little late in the game. It’s a great item and one that you don’t see in boxes often. However, a lot of people buy their summer hats as soon as it starts getting warm. This would have been a great item in the spring box to prepare for summer.
