The earrings are nice on the front side but the back is unfinished, and the figurine is so small I see no use for it. I doubt I will renew this,
Purple bracelet and long wood comfy earrings.
Loved my bracelet, but my ring fell off me first day and lost it, can't do rings.
Sweet idea and wonderful gift!
I loved my first box! I got three items that I can tell we're made with love. My favorite was the beanie. I hope to be back soon.
Was really disappointed. Received a very simple stretchy bracelet with pieces that are not cute at all.
What a nice box! I ordered it to help others and look forward to the next box!!!
I love my monthly shipment from International Blessings. There is often jewelry for me to enjoy as well as a goody for my daughter. I also like the exposure for the artisans and have purchased additional items. Thank you!
Loved the earrings!
Earrings very pretty and the cat keychain was a nice surprise! Of all the animals I got a cat and I love cats!
I used the Contact Seller button to get in touch with Int’l Blessings because I forgot to put the apt number on a gift and USPS couldn’t deliver it. Not only did they reply to me promptly, but they sent out a replacement box very quickly so that my mom wouldn’t have to wait for her gift.
A great mission, a great idea, and being run by great folks.
I’ll update this review with a photo once she gets it!
Wasn’t thrilled. I like the idea of supporting small businesses and learning about different places. But, this just wasn’t exciting.
Excited for more!!
I really enjoy this subscription box - I have the Favorite of the Month and it's just enough to keep things fresh and exciting. Sarah usually sends a piece of jewelry and a trinket - a hand-carved gourd animal, a tagua nut keychain, or (the latest) a precious stone turtle. Once, I even received a large, sturdy cloth messenger bag. But my favorites are the jewelry pieces. They have all been high quality: sometimes silver pieces, sometimes hand-rolled paper beads. Plus, you're helping others help themselves with your purchase.
At some point (and this isn't Sarah's fault), the pieces start to feel like they repeat (I have sooooo many nut/paper bead bracelets and necklaces, lol), but I think that is the nature of fair trade jewelry. The pieces are quality, so I can easily gift them. To that end, it would be nice if the info card that came with the box didn't have the name of the subscription box on it; I always want to include the card, but I don't necessarily want anyone to know I am gifting something I am not keeping. Maybe make it a half fold card?
I've been introduced to several fair trade jewelry sources thanks to this box.
Don't forget to follow International Blessings on Facebook...Sarah hosted a moving sale this summer and I picked up a ton of fantastic pieces that I'd missed from previous boxes, including two pairs of colorful thread woven earrings, three pairs of silver/gemstone earrings, and a beautiful silver woven braid...
I loooove the bag. Beautiful and very well made with quality fabric and stitches! I love the care that was taken to make a great product. Shipping was fast!
Absolutely loved getting this box each month. The seller is very easy to work with and quick to respond. The information sheet that tells you about your item and the background of where it is from and who made it is very interesting. Products were great -- I love wearing the jewelry and telling people about where it is from!
I gave this subscription to my globe-trotting daughter as a gift and she is absolutely loving the monthly treasures that have been included in this fun surprise.
Beautiful earrings & a ring! I was only expecting one item & I got two. I am in love with both. I will come back & do it again on months I have a little extra in the budget.
Absolutely love what I got! It's very beautiful and couldn't have arrived at a more perfect time. The customer service is great will definitely be ordering from again thanks Sarah for helping me to help make a difference in the world!
Receiver of these gifts absolutely loved them - each month was a very unique and interesting gift.
Love the silver earrings, and the story about the people who made them.
Loved my product plus the note from where it’s from and the people involved.
The earrings were simple, unique and I love them.
I got this box because I thought it sounded like a great idea to do something for myself while also doing something for someone else. I couldn't be happier with it! My first box was a beautiful quartz crystal necklace, and I'm a big crystal lover, so this couldn't have been more perfect for me. Besides, it feels really good to know you're contributing to a good cause! Can't wait to see what next month's box is!
I just received my December box. Love it. It had two animal ornaments that are perfect for my tree. Little wooden bowl is beautiful.
