Q: Just 1 more question. That's not dollar sign. What does it mean & how many American dollars does it equal? Also does it include shipping? Thanks so much for your time.Asked by Sarahbeth R., June 2019
Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. I wanted to check with Cratejoy if there was any way for a potential subscriber to see the prices in their own currency rather than the currency of the country of origin, the UK in this case.
At present there isn't a way for you to see the exact price in dollars so Kam's suggestion of checking a currency converter to get an idea of what the price in dollars will be.
I'm afraid that there is an international delivery charge to be added as the package is quite heavy.
It's the sign for Pounds, the currency in the UK - where the box ships from. I suggest google for accurate and current currency conversion rates (GBP to USD if you don't want to type out "pounds to US dollars").
Q: Are the China pieces food & hot beverage safe? Even the Victorian Era 1s?Asked by Sarahbeth R., June 2019
Hi Sarabeth, thank you for your question.
When I select the china for the boxes I give them a soak in hot soapy water as this is the best way to check for crazing and cracks and if they aren't perfect and usable they don't go into the boxes.
However if you were to join us I can only send you later pieces of china if you prefer, just let me know and I'd be happy to select more modern ones for you.
I've been a subscriber for three months and I really like the china pieces included in the package. Each month I open the package and wash the cup and plate and use them for tea and the enclosed cookies. I have never had a problem and I use the dishes often. I hope this is helpful.
The box itself was slightly battered but the absolutely lovely china set inside made it to the other side of the world without a scratch.
The china is so beautiful I just couldn’t resist immediately using it for a nice afternoon tea with the ginger biscuits (after a quick wash of course). My little teapot doesn’t quite match the vintage set but luckily the tablecloth did.
I received this box as a birthday present.
Thank you:) The tea cup with the saucers are beautiful! I also love reading books. Different teas with cookies and chocolate were also included.
I am looking forward to trying the teas in the cup and reading the books.
All the items were very well secured and there was a "fragile" tape on the box- thank you for taking extra care with the package.
This is such a wonderful subscription. I purchased it as a gift for my mother-in-law and have been absolutely delighted with the quality of the box and the wonderful customer service provided. Gillian goes above and beyond to create the perfect gifts. She even emailed photos of the boxes to me so that I could see just what my mother-in-law was getting each month. I definitely recommend this subscription!
apart from the box just being great itself, I have never had better customer service anywhere! That just makes a world of a difference.
It’s clear that a lot of thought goes into these boxes everything was very well wrapped even with a little note in! The China was beautiful and the biscuits so yummy! Thank you!
I’m a full time working mother of 3 who decided to do something for myself for a change and I chose this subscription box. It is wonderful!! Every month is a little gift just for me. The tea sets are beautiful, the teas are delicious and the extra goodies make me smile. I love it!!
I opened this box last night and shared a cup of tea, some biscuits, and chocolate with my boyfriend. Everything tasted great. It's nice that each box is unique and thoughtful. The book is something I would never have found otherwise and I'm interested to read it. It's a little bit of English/European culture in a box. I had just planned to try this box once because I wanted my own China tea set for myself, but I am definitely going to get another box when all the treats are gone so my boyfriend and me can both have a set. With the price of shipping it is in the higher range for price, but I think it's worth it.
I am so so so glad to have found this subscription box. The items are absolutely amazing and so fun to open. It's a box you can open and truly enjoy! I recommend everyone have this box and it would make a great gift as well. Each tea cup saucer set is truly vintage and unique! The customer service is exceptional, personal and warm.
The design was a blue bird with vibrant flowers. The colors are bright and not faded at all. I enjoyed the tea and cookies on my new set. I have them on display so I can enjoy them whenever I walk by.
I bought three months of boxes for a friend and she has thoroughly enjoyed them. We have had tea together with the lovely cups and various varieties of tea. I highly recommend!
