This is my last Lit Cube reveal and my first OwlCrate reveal! I thought last month was my last Lit Cube, but apparently I didn’t cancel it in time, so I got one more.
Let’s save the best for last and start with Lit Cube:
Lit Cube Reveal:
Lit Cube lowered the price of their subscriptions by $10, making it $25 a month. They also started shipping items in a bubble mailer instead of a box and the quality and quantity of their items dropped significantly.
April’s theme was “Passport to California” and these were the items included, and their retail value:
- Ana of California – $16
- Anne of Green Gables inspired bookmark – $5
- See’s Candy Lollipop – $1
- Route 66 Enamel Pin – $10
- California Decal – $4
I know the retail value of these items totals $36 but I wouldn’t have paid anywhere close to that for them. The bookmark is just a laminated piece of paper with a huge yarn tassel. We made these in 5th grade for a class project. Literally a 5th grader can make them. (no offence to whoever did make it, its just not worth $5 in my opinion)
Overall I am incredibly disappointed in this box and it just re-enforced the fact that I am glad I canceled my subscription.
Ahhh I love the box! And it gives you instructions on how to unbox it! #owlcrate
The Theme was Shadows & Secrets and this is what it contained:
Wild Berry Soap from Three Sisters Apothecary. (for the life of me I have never been able to correctly pronounce “Apothecary”)
“The Young Elites” sticker designed by Jamila Mehio.
“Harry Potter” Pencils from Jubilee Designs.
Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Coffee from Bones Coffee Company.
Signed OwlCrate Exclusive Edition of “Ace of Shades” by Amanda Foody.
Letter from Amanda Foody.
The first three chapters of “Legendary” by Stephanie Garber.
“Ace of Shades” postcard set.
“Crooked Kingdom” inspired pillowcase by Stella Bookish Art.
OwlCrate monthly theme pin.
Here is the official description of everything in case you were wondering:
I LOVE this box!!! Especially the pillowcase! I haven’t even read Crooked Kingdom yet but I love the quote and the design!
I am so glad I decided to switch subscriptions!!! (And thanks Phil for helping convince me to do it!)
I can’t wait for next month!! The theme is Fight Like a Girl and I could not be more excited!!!!
Seriously!! This theme sounds AWESOME and I can’t wait!!
