I adore receiving snail mail, not the brown envelope kind, but the little box of monthly loveliness otherwise known as subscription boxes. Last week I received the June Stocking Box which I have been looking forward to sharing with you. The idea behind Stocking Box is a subscription box full of handmade goodies – a Christmas stocking every month!
The June box contained all the goodies below wrapped in tissue paper so it was really exciting to look through. There was also a little booklet with information about each artist.
A set of notebooks in a 60’s floral design from Made By Mrs M. I have this pattern on a piece of fabric I bought from her etsy store which I love.
Last but not least was Worry Cats by My Art & Soul. The dinky-iest little bottle contained tiny cats. You tell your worries to the tiny cats and let them take them away. I had Worry Dolls when I was younger and I love this modern version. Everything is stored in a matchbox which makes this the cutest piece of miniature art I’ve seen.
I hope you can tell I love the idea behind Stocking Box. It’s a great way to discover new British artists and support the handmade community.
StockingBox make limited subscription boxes and one off boxes priced from £19 per month (including postage and packaging). Next months box (click here for a sneak peak of some of the artists included) will go on sale at the end of the month so make sure you follow them on Twitter or Instagram for updates.
