Handmade Surprise- Umba Box Review and Promo

I was introduced to Umba Box from Lauren Elizabeth Blog and The Small Things Blog, and have been wanting to sign up for this wonderful box ever since. I was over-the-top excited when I was contacted by Umba Box to review on of their monthly boxes. Of course, I said yes, and could not wait to see what was included. 

What is Umba Box?
Umba Box was curated because the founders love and are passionate about handmade goods. However, they found that it was sometimes hard to find beautiful quality handmade products. In October 2011 Umba Box was born. Umba Box  is a monthly subscription that sends out 2-3 handmade surprises, from artists who create wonderfully made handmade jewelry, accessories, stationary, and bath products.

Cost: $25 per month

Stay Tuned at the end of this post for a special Tickled Pink in the Rain reader promo/discount code to get $5 off your first Umba Box!

September Umba Box

I was so excited to see this box in the mail, and I ripped into it right away. Coming home to a box I am excited for after work, is the best way to end a day.

Natasha J. Collection 

Ceramic Half Moon Necklace -$30

This is beautifully crafted by Natasha at Natasha J. Collection. The Half Moon necklace comes in other colors, but I received the Patina color, which I think is beautiful.  Each item that is included in the Umba Box also includes a profile card so you can get to know the story behind each artist.  The Natasha J. Collection is really beautiful; you can see more of her pieces on her website HERE

Fox & Anchor Paper 

Black Bow Coasters- $8

Fox & Anchor is a collaborated team of ladies Chelsey and Erin, who have a love for custom letterpress, and the products they have created show it.  Fox & Anchor not only creates lovely coasters, but also  some beautiful handmade cards as well. I love this Dots and Heart card.

TICKLED PINK OPINION:   I really love handmade goods. There is just something special about receiving something that someone has made by hand. And, as someone who loves DIY projects, I know how much time it takes to make some of these handmade items.  I really appreciate the creativity and time it takes to make each item.  The total value of this box was about $38, and the monthly cost to subscribe to Umba Box is $25, so the value and quality of items received in this Umba Box was excellent.  Each box that comes from Umba Box to your doorstep each month is different,  and a surprise, which makes getting a box like this each month really exciting.   

For all Tickled Pink in the Rain readers, you can get $5 off your next Umba Box, just use Promo Code PINKOCT at checkout. (Promo Code Valid until September 30th at 11:59 EST).
