Loves It Newfoundland Box September 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.

The warning is there again this month.  Inside we have a few interesting looking items.

Coasters?

I think these might be coasters.  There are four of them and they don’t have the padding required for them to be pot holders.  They have a fun blueberry fabric and are plain black on the reverse.

Boatload of Colour Special Edition Art Reproduction by Brenda Rowe

Some of the artwork I’ve received from this box has been lovely and this is no exception.  It is on that kinda foamy mat so it is about a quarter inch thick.

Owshegettinonby Dark Chocolate Bar-$3.99

This is fun.  The name of the bar is a Newfie version of How Are You?  It doesn’t say what percentage of dark chocolate this is but since there is no such thing as bad chocolate it doesn’t matter.  They have a bunch of other sayings if you need to find a specific thought to express with chocolate.

Nan’s Shortbread Foaming Shea Bath Treat-$4.50

This smells fantastic!  You can use either half or the whole thing at a time.  You just pop it into the tub under running water and sit back and enjoy.  I love bath products and can’t wait to use it.

Friggin Wicked Weather Lotion-$12.00

This handmade lotion is good for your whole body.  It is for extra dry skin and can handle those super cold Canadian winters.  It has a fragrance that I have smelled before but I can’t place it.  It is like a sweet citrus maybe?  This is from and Etsy shop so you can pick some up.  It has made my hands feel great.

This was my seventh 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. I just wish for a few of the thing that they would tell me what or why it was included. Value is always hard for this box as I don’t always know where things are from.  If you want to check them out click here to go to their site.
