Hello,
I am hurt to hear you are disappointed by our October box. For $45 (and free shipping) you received 5 handmade jewelry pieces from Kenya. Each one was made using a lot of time and skill. The artist are paid fair trade living wage and children in an African orphanage are fed each month from our sales.
