The Little Black Box: What a great idea!

Many of you who are crafters are probably aware of The Little Black Box. Kimberlee Keane is the mastermind behind the glorious The Little Black Box.

I found The Little Black Box about a month ago as I was researching different indie sites to promote my own handcrafted site Mattie Reid Chicago. I contacted Kimberlee and asked if she had any additional spots open for her November box (this was pretty close to the deadline for submissions). She replied and said she still had a few spots left. I submitted 150 samples of vintage buttons rings like this one:vintage button ring, mattie reid chicago

Not only did I donate samples for the November box, but I also became a customer. I subscribed to her blog and received an email from her a few days ago saying that all October boxes were on sale for $15. I went straight to her site and purchased a box. I love sales, especially sales on indie designer stuff!

My box arrived today. I opened the box and this is what I found:
Tons of cute samples including soaps, bookmarkers, a pair of earrings, magnets-all sorts of cute things.

There were two cute little soaps by Sweet Lollipop Shop. Here's one of their soaps:
Katherine Quinn included this really cute little magnet and notecard:
Under Glass included this cute lil' snowflake pendant:
Lastly, one of my most favorite things in the box was this lavender mint soap by Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen: It smells sooooo good!

I do highly recommend stopping by Kimberlee's Little Black Box site and ordering a November box. There's supposed to be Spoonfudge by Glutenada in quite a few boxes. I went to their site and all of their goodies look so yummy and they're all gluten free!
