Loves It Newfoundland Box July 2016

Loves It is a box of Newfoundland sourced, hand crafted, home made items.  They are proudly sending out boxes of items they purchase from those local suppliers so that they can show off the greatness of their artists, crafters, and businesses.  They offer both a Standard or a Premium box and monthly or quarterly subscriptions.  Boxes start at $35.00 a month but do go down with longer plans.  There will be 4-7 items per box and they say they will range in value from $40-$75.  I am always on the lookout for Canadian boxes and so while I’m not from Newfoundland nor have I ever been there I was still interested in this box.

I know by now that this box usually has this warning on it and that means I might be getting a print or some type of paper good.

Petty Harbour Blues Print by Bobbi Pike Art-$20.00

I think the fact that they send out original artwork is a great thing.  I would never buy art because I don’t care too much to have things on the walls….yeah I’m odd…..but since it keeps showing up in boxes I am getting a bit of a collection.  This is an 8″x10″ print and hand titled and signed by the artist.  Maritime images make me happy and even though I’ve yet to get to the East Coast it just feels homey and wonderful to me.

Newfoundland An Island Apart-$18.95

I’m so sad that they shipped me this again this month.  I think it’s a beautiful book and enjoyed it but to send out the same item twice and in back to back months is not great practice.  I have sent them an email about it but haven’t heard anything back.  This is a book filled with beautiful pictures taken by Dennis Minty.  It seems to cover all areas of life in Newfoundland and shows the absolute glory that is that province.

Beads By The Sea Bracelet

I can’t get a price for this item because the Etsy shop is empty.  Though it seems like the owner has been having some medical issues, based on her Facebook posts,  and been unable to get new products made.  This bracelet is too large for my wrist but that is because I have tiny wrists.  The glass bead is very pretty though.

It’s Tangly Keychain-$6.75

There seems to be keychain in every box.  This one is in the provincial colours I believe and tied from paracord.

This was my fifth box from Loves It and I still never have any clue what to expect to be in it besides it all being from Newfoundland.  There is a good mix of products and it was all full sized so can’t complain about that. I just wish for a few of the thing that they would tell me what or why it was included. The value this month is around $45.00, plus the bracelet.  If you want to check them out click here to go to their site.
