  1. I’m from South Africa, and I am stoked to see the basket from Mia Melange! I’m happy to support a brand out of a 3rd world country empowering women.

    • I was having a tough time choosing but you just made this my pick for sure.

      • I hope you enjoy it Kathie! With the pandemic-I’m not sure when I’ll be able to go visit my family in South Africa again, so it’s awesome knowing that I’ll have something from home arriving at my doorstep in a months time.

      • I hope you enjoy it Kathie! With the pandemic I’m not sure when I’ll be able to visit my family in South Africa again-so something from home showing up on my doorstep in a months time, is exciting!

  2. I am having a hard time choosing!
    Not because I want everything but because nothing seems “wow” lol

    Hopefully, we get more spoilers before customization

    I signed up as annual during the summer box

    Anyone that has annual are we able to skip a season?

    • Yes, you can skip one season and receive store credit.

      • So it doesn’t extend a season but you get the equivalent of the box price as store credit?

  3. Big shout out to MSA for keeping it real and not grooming the Botkier backpack! I appreciate the transparency. Thank you!

  4. I like the basket, but is a bit small. I’ve been looking to buy one, but in a 12×12 size. The canisters are cute, but not my color. I bet they could be painted?

    • Where do you see the measurements?

      • Jean if you look closely at the tag you can see the measurement of the basket is 9’x9″

  5. I think they’re going to run out of the mascara and black eyeliner option……said no one ever.

    • Lol, this is funny and true!

  6. Nothing here impresses me, but we have Home Goods and Marshall’s stores in every direction so you can get cooler and better stuff there.

    • Yeah … but who would go to HomeGoods or Marshall’s in a pandemic? Sounds like part of the problem, rather than part of the solution. I’m happy to get my junk delivered to my front door!

  7. I like the canisters and the basket is nice also.. It would make a good basket to put a nice plant in I think.

  8. My friend has a basil plant in a similar basket on his windowsill and it’s very cute. Maybe a use. I have no idea what I’m choosing. I would choose the backpack but I’m wary of the quality. Also the cheesy lettering on the straps is not for me. Even in the photo you can see the stitching possibly coming out in the handle. Sadly Jewelry and bags are very hit and miss with fff. I would take the bag in leather in a heartbeat. The copper is cute but doesn’t work with my decor. There will probably be two things in another category I want. That’s how it always goes!

    • Ugh I agree with the cheesy lettering on the backpack straps. Bummer as I was planning on choosing that if it was the Botkier choice. Guess I’ll get the tote instead.

    • The Fff video shows the regular Trigger backpack, which is bigger and has different straps.

      • Hmm interesting…if you look at Katie’s post modeling the bags on Instagram you can clearly see the straps with the lettering.

    • I love that but I always wonder about the logistics? I’m sure there’s a plastic pot inside but still how do you keep the fabric basket from getting dirty, wet/moldy?? If you know his secret please share!

  9. Has anyone tried the FOXYBAE 25mm Black Curling Wand?

    • it looks like the regular retail one has good reviews, but it has a lot of features this one doesn’t, like a temp reading.

  10. I will be choosing the backpack 🙂

    • That or the matching tote. Both are super cute.

  11. I really hope ordering is easier this time, it took me forever to order my spring box.

  12. Liz, can you please tell us if the lids for the canisters have a rubber seal/something to make them stay on?

    • Just FYI Liz left MSA months ago.

  13. Excited! The first round is great!

  14. I like the backpack, tote, cannisters, and basket.

  15. Ugh, struggling with this one. I don’t use backpacks and have tons of totes (plus, TBH, it being nylon makes me think of those “travel” totes they used to push as carry-ons for air travel), I don’t curl my hair or use product in it, and I already have tons of mascara and liner. I absolutely love the basket, but at 9×9″ it’s so small… I can’t think what I’d use it for. And I also love the look of the copper canisters but they don’t work with my kitchen decor (black w/ stainless/silver). Sigh. I know, I know, #firstworldproblems.

    • I love black and stainless with copper!

    • As an artist, I say anything goes with black and ‘silver’!

  16. I really like the basket but I have a German Shepherd, so it would be furry before I even found a place to put it. I’m going with the Stila set. Might add on the copper canisters if I know the size. They would be a beautiful contrast in my gray and white bathroom.

    • The dimensions of the canisters are listed on the box in one of the photos

      • It says how many ounces they hold but not the actual product dimensions. I can make an estimate based on the volume that’s probably close but it would’ve been easier to just have the height at least.

  17. I was eyeing the basket, but zooming in on the pic if says “9inx9in”. Too small for me, and the other choices are not enough for making me resubscribe. I’ll wait to see what’s next 🙂

  18. I love backpacks so that’s probably what I’ll go for…not really a fan of the straps but that’s okay. I might add on the copper canisters. No idea what I’d use them for but they’re just so pretty!

  19. Does anyone have the foxybae curling wand, is it good?

  20. LOVE the basket! And I might add the copper jars too!

  21. I need that basket!! And possibly adding on the backpack even though I def don’t need it. Looks like a good box so far!

  22. The more I look at the tote, the more I want it. 😍

  23. I actually need a laundry hamper for my daughter’s room. I wonder if the melange basket is big enough to function as a hamper for a child’s room? Otherwise, the copper canisters or the Sachajuan.

    • You can see really small on the basket label that it says 9″x9″ – so pretty small.

    • If you look at the dimensions on the tag of the basket it says it’s 9”x 9” so it’s small

      • Thank you so much! That’s way small for a hamper then. I checked the website and the one I’d want for a hamper is $175. Sigh.

    • Costco had a hamper like that a while back for $15. It was called Mesa Cotton Rope Hamper. I don’t know if they still have it. We use ours for pillows and blankets in the living room.

      • Thanks for the tip. I wanted another Kate Spade “getting dressed” bin but those things are like magical unicorns. Inn BN love the one I have in my bathroom.

  24. I use back packs as purses so I need to see how big it is, i like smaller ones and have been looking for a new one. Otherwise those copper boxes

    • The backpack is a mini – 9″x9.5″x4″ per the manufacturer’s website.

      • Oh I’m so disappointed by that size, was hoping to at least be able to carry a notebook in it 🙁

  25. I like that basket and the canisters ,but the other are meh.

  26. Meh– cute stuff, but nothing cute enough yet to push me over the edge to re-subbing. Although I really did enjoy my summer box a lot!

  27. I love to organize. Copper canisters for me. I will probably add on the basket.

    • My thoughts exactly!

  28. Wow another sub-par plastic bag with a famous brand label sewn on

    I was figuring we’d get something nylon, but was really hoping to avoid the plastic details yet again. I sense a repeat of the Vince Camuto fiasco of 2018

    • I love my Vince Camuto fake leather tote, and I get tons of compliments on it! I use it as a laptop bag for work. Although, no one goes to work anymore so it’s just sitting in a closet now.

      • Same. I use it as a work tote, catch all and get compliments.

    • I agree, but this is what’s done to ‘sell’ people on the box. People think they are getting designer but it’s really just a cheap manufactured in China product.

  29. I am excited about the first spoiler. I like the tote, curling wand, and basket.

  30. I’m kinda thinking of resubbing. I like the copper canisters, but don’t know where I’d put them. The basket would be good for my daughter to put random junk in.

    A bit odd to have eye makeup with the other stuff. I wonder what the prices are of the items.

  31. Do we know what the purses are made of?

    And how big is the basket?

    • I feel like MSA used to post details and pictures of them modeling the items when they posted these spoilers.

      • I do think seeing the bags modeled, either by MSA or at least by models in the pictures of the bags, is very helpful in making a final decision.

      • Agree with Katy, would be super helpful to have the bags modeled to get a better idea of what to choose. Hopefully MSA updates to include this.

      • Nylon and pleather. Both bags are on the Botkier website listed as FFF box partner items.

    • The basket is 9×9. The pic of the tag has the dimensions

    • In the pictures it says the basket is 9″ x 9″.

  32. This looks like the start of a good box. I tried to re-sub but they want to send me the Summer box which I wasn’t to keen on. Guess I’ll have to wait. hopefully I’ll talk myself out of it since my State is still in lock-down and I have been doing 5 months of non stop online shopping :(.

  33. Why does the backpack have such hideous straps? There’s one for sale at Bloomingdale’s right now that’s the same but has leather straps. Definitely another manufactured for FFF product.

    Other than that, everything else looks good! Might have to resub.

  34. I’m choosing the Uncommon James copper canisters! They’re a decent size, will look great on the counter opposite my copper utensil holder, and I’m going to paint the kids white to tie them into my decor a little better. The wood color of the lids clashes with the copper.

    • Lids! I’m painting the lids, not my kids. Someday I’ll learn to proofread before I hit submit.

      • 😅

      • Might as well paint your kids, too. Since the paint will be out, make it a craft day. 😆

    • Paint the kids white 😂

      Has to read that a few times but then figured out what you meant

  35. I typically love Botkier stuff and am obsessed with their wristlets, but not a fan of these designs… Would choose the backpack if it had a zipper closure. I guess it’s not real leather right?? Good choices so far though! I wonder how big the tote bag is and if it could fit a 13″ MacBook. Anyone have any idea??

    • I did a bit of research on the backpack since I’m interested too. It’s the “mini” version made of nylon; it’s about 9” x 9” and priced $100 (whereas the regular version is 12” x 12” and $180).

      • Ahhh, thanks for figuring that out! That seems awfully small for what I want… I do like zippered bags, but idk. I have also been debating buying a Longchamp bag in black, so maybe I’ll just choose something else from category 1!

    • The tote is 11.5″ H x 12″ L x 6″ D per the manufacturer’s website. 9″ handle drop.

  36. I love the look of the canisters but can’t figure out what I’d do with them. Those who are planning to get them – what would you use them for?

    • You could use them in the bathroom for cotton balls, q tips, etc – that kinda stuff? Or like individually packaged tea bags in the kitchen or something? Idk they are cute though!

    • LOL! That’s exactly what my problem was before I finally cut the cord with FFF. So many nice things, but what to do with them? Well, an awful lot of them are sitting in cupboards doing nothing. I have gorgeous candles and reed diffusers sitting at the back of closets, beautiful towels still in their packaging, lovely makeup that I’ve never opened – I’ll eventually gift all this stuff, I suppose, but it’s easier to just toss them aside and forget about them. No thanks, FFF, I’ve got enough stuff that I don’t know what to do with.

    • On the UJ website they’re shown with sugar in them! I’ll probably use mine to store tea bags. I know you have to be careful with what you store in copper, nothing acidic/reactive.

      • Hahha I like how we both said tea bags

    • i like the canisters too, but am feeling iffy about them. The box says they are made of “metal” in China. The outside is copper plated, but the inside…? I don’t think I would want to store any food in them at all.

    • I have four copper canisters in my kitchen – I use them for Splenda, flax, chia seeds, and coffee beans. And I love them.

    • I have found that if you have something to organize in, things will come up. Could be dog or cat treats. Individually wrapped candy. Match boxes. I use a lot of votive candles and like to put the current season ones out. Potpourri with the lid off. Sea shells with the lid off. I may use mine for crackers. Protein powder. Flax seeds. Beans. I may use the smaller one for my collection of metal straws.

      • Dog treats! I have a copper canister that I use for dog treats. The only thing I don’t like about it is that I need two hands to open it. I’m thinking about getting this set and using them to store Tide Pods

    • My go to for stuff like this is always makeup brushes! I got those pink silicon stemless wine cups they had a few boxes back and I don’t drink nor did I find much appeal in even using them to drink out of but they sure do look adorable on my makeup counter holding all of my pink Luxie brushes. 😉

      • I love that idea!

    • I’m a tad iffy on food in these too, so I’m planning to use them as centerpieces for flowers putting a glass vessel inside first filled with flowers or a glass candle since I have lots that are just plain. I also have lots of little appetizer forks and things I use when I entertain so can pop those in when I entertain. I think I can also convert the tops with felt on the bottom and maybe use as coasters.

  37. Me: I won’t be tempted. Save money. *Sees Huge mascara. Dang it! That’s my mascara y’all. I buy it full price, so even as an add-on, it’s a deal. Hm.

  38. Has anyone ever used a curling wand? How are they different from a curling iron? Which do you like better? I feel kind of old lady for asking. LOVE the tote and had been planning to buy a new one!

    • There isn’t really much difference. The only real difference is that normal curling irons have that arm (I know that’s a weird way to describe it but I don’t know the actual name haha) that you press the lever on the handle and when you do the piece comes up for you to clamp on your hair. The wand doesn’t have that! You have to wrap your hair around the wand. Personally I love the wand better than the regular because I always felt that I’d have a weird looking dent on my hair where it clamped down on it.

  39. @Rianna you can add items but they are $15 now not $10

    • Ah, I see. thank you

  40. I love everything so far! Will probably add a few extra items can’t wait to see more

  41. I feel like I could pick a lot of this stuff up at my local TJMaxx. Not to impressed..

    • Thing is…there are a lot of us nowhere near any of those stores! We live on a farm and I would have to drive 100 miles to find one.

      • That’s definitely a thing, I’m almost never near a TJ Maxx, I’d have to go out to burbs for that.

      • Exsctly!

    • Just gonna say I feel very lucky to live 1.5 miles from a TJ Maxx lol 🙂

  42. Stoked for the Uncommon James hammered copper set! So far, so good…..

    • That’s my choice!

  43. Anyone else wish the blue tray in the photo of the Stila makeup was one of the options lol?

    I feel like a boring old lady but I think I’m gonna go for the copper canisters…

    • Yes! That is so pretty!!! I’m surprised both Botikers are black; I thought there would be one item from them in a few colors. At any rate, it’s fun to see what else is coming!

      • Yes! My thoughts exactly … I don’t wear black so that’s a bummer – but canisters it is.

      • I’m not complaining here; I love FFF as an annual member, just making a few observations! I wonder why they don’t tier the choice categories with same values something like this; #1 ($100+ srv) w/$15 add-on, #2 ($50-100 srv) w/$10 add-on, #3 ($25-50 srv) w/$7-8 add-on, and then do few more medium value groups for #3 & 4 for annual members. Or maybe lump them by category; home, accessory, beauty, repeat. A $150 curling iron or $45 mascara/liner seems strange in the same category, but I can see someone liking the basket or canisters instead of the purse and not caring about value. And, the 3 last choices really should just be the same for everyone and people just need to think of those as bonus items to try, gift, or trade. Anyone else been wondering where the >FIT< in FFF has gone these days? Let's see what else is coming for this box…

  44. Ooooo I’m definitely getting the backpack. I’m excited already

  45. I’d have loved the tote if it wasnt nylon. I wonder what size the black and white basket will be. And what size are the copper containers?

    • On the box it says the copper canisters are 45 oz and 25 oz

    • On the tag of the black and white basket it says 9in x 9in. Wow that is way smaller that I was thinking from the picture… I

      • That’s definitely smaller than I thought too. I was thinking hamper sized. What would you do with this small basket? It’s so cute but maybe not useful?? I actually like the tote. I’m so glad it’s nylon and not all fake leather. Will probably get the hair products too.

    • Found this on another sub site!
      Copper-plated stainless steel canisters
      Includes wood sealed silicone lids
      Large: 5.5” H x 4.75” W
      Medium: 4.75” H x 4” W
      Canisters are dishwasher safe
      Wood lids are hand wash only

  46. Pretty box design!! I have been SO eager to see these fall box spoilers! Time to get excited!!

  47. Wow! A lot choices and I’m immediately really into two from this category without even having to think about it!

  48. I think I’m gonna go for the cotton basket since it seems useful.

  49. Not bad!

  50. I guess I’m gonna have to get a second box because I want about half these items. Why so many options in one category? I wish they spread the wealth! And I hope the other categories aren’t so rich with products that I like!

    • Gosh I agree and I miss The days when we could add on another choice item for $10

      • Oh no, is it not an option to do that? I just got my first box (the summer editors box) a little while ago and I had the option to do this. So I assumed you could do it every time. Was that just because it was the editors box? I was very much planning on doing it for this one

      • You still can purchase items for $15, from this category, not $10 anymore. Unless they run out of stock.

    • Same I really want 4 of the options. This is almost cruel with so many amazing choices in one category. 😭😭😭
