Every month Fair Ivy sends a handmade find with every other month including a jewelry surprise. April was a non-jewelry month so I was super excited to see what type of item I’d get.
As soon as I saw what was written on the side of the box I got excited. Fair Ivy sent items from White Peach Pottery before and it was one of my favorite sub box items from 2014.
Now we dive in.
Okay, I’ll admit that this isn’t the prettiest wrapping job I’ve received from a Fair Ivy product, but it’s cheerful and I’m sure I couldn’t have done much better.
We unwrap to reveal…
Handmade Mug & Spoon from White Peach Pottery
White Peach Pottery writes, “Your new mug & spoon are 100% handmade by artist Marianne Tolosa, of White Peach Pottery, in the state of Virginia. Each mug is thrown on the potter’s wheel before being hand-altered and decorated with 14k gold luster.”
Do I have mugs? Sure I do. But this one is so pretty. It’s really classic, lovely and makes my coffee treats feel extra luxurious. The best part is that adorable spoon. How can you not love it? If White Peach Pottery sold sets of just the spoons I’d buy a bunch. I don’t see this particular version available on the website, so it seems like it was made just for subscribers. I linked to a similar one with different coloring. Sadly, I cannot find a spoon available for purchase.
I paid $36.95 (including shipping) and with a retail price of $32 just for the mug (excluding the spoon & shipping), I feel like I got my money’s worth. I know this is pricey for a mug, but it’s handmade and very special so I’m fine with paying a bit extra for it.
Fair Ivy has also been randomly sending subscribers small handmade samples to subscribers so they can share them on social media. It’s a fun way to try out some of these amazing indie artisans.
Plum Deluxe Oregon Breakfast Black Tea
(Retail: $7.00 per oz)
Plum Deluxe offers teas for sale along with a tea-of-the-month subscription.
Natural Soap from Marvi Beauty
(Retail: $3.00 for a small bar)
Marvi Beauty is a skin and hair care company with 100% natural products crafted by hand in small batches.
It was really nice to get some fun extras in the mail box and find some cool new shops to stalk.
