so I finally got to subscribe to the Fancy box and I just got it yesterday within only 5 days shipment (based on the massage I got informing me that the box got shipped), so I consider it a pretty fast shipping, especially that it is an international one.
as you can see, International shipping doesn’t usually treat the shipped packages so good, which can be really problematic sometimes, depending on the nature of the items inside them!
anyway, the Theme of this month, April, and quoting from the little card included in the package: “This Month, we created a Fancy Box full of one-of-a-kind items with a rustic feel. Whether you spend all your time outside or none whatsoever, we hope you enjoy the outdoorsy aesthetic!” – Fancy
pretty interesting, and I like the rustic feeling, and that was actually what I thought of when I saw the items:: earth and maybe sustainability:
before I start showing the items and reviewing them… I thought I would get only four items in the box like most of the other boxes that were sent in previous months, but I ended up with five, which I’m really glad for, especially that the shipping rate to the part of the world I’m living in is kinda high “” compared to the local one””
Note: you can click on the pictures of the items so you can directly go to their links on Fancy.com
Message in a Bottle USB Drive: $28
I’m not sure of how I feel about this USB, it is cute, but it gives the impression that it is meant for gifting, rather to be kept with the purchaser, unless you are thinking of saving some personal, top secret kinda files on it. However, I know I’m not gonna use this USB,but I don’t wanna give it away either !!!
Guest toothbrushes by Izola: $15
Unfortunately, I don’t get to have many guests who would spend the night over like I used to do before moving to the new place I’m living in right now, and to be honest I also don’t feel like giving this item away, I adore its design and the quality, so I think I will use it myself, ignoring the Guests label on them!!! XD
Fold Over Triangles Post Earing by Amano Trading: $22
Although I don’t wear earnings that much but these are definitely cool and pretty, I’m actually wearing them right now!, check the brand’s other stuff, pretty interesting,, and I’m considering ordering some stuff in the future.
Chalkboard Decals by Wallies: $10
9″ x 12″ two black sheets with 2 chalk included, I know I’m not gonna use this so I would probably give it away.
Kinfolk; Issue 11: $18
I never came across this magazine before yesterday, and I’m already in Love. When I first took it out of the box I wasn’t so excited about it and thought of it as another kinda coffee table book, but I changed my mind once I started reading the first article. It talks about everything that has to do with Home, based on different people’s definitions of the word itself, home. It gives you different tips on what to do and how to do and such … I’m just in Love … and I consider this as the best item I got in the box ❤
Expectations: I would hate the box and get so disappointed
Reality: I actually like it, maybe not at the first sight, but I like it now
The thing is that every item is indeed interesting and Fancy, but the question that kept coming to my mind is am I gonna buy them if I got the chance to… most probably not,,, maybe yes in the case of the earnings and definitely the Kinfolk magazine. But in general no! mybe because usually the cool stuff were not made to be used but only to be looked at I guess!!!
However, I liked the way that fancy tried to pick the items based on rusticity, stay fancy and not exceed the expected total price, as it is around $93.
