Fair Ivy: Package #2 – September 2013

I received my second package for September from Fair Ivy, a subscription service that features handmade items.  Skip down for more details on subscription options along with a coupon code.   Now onto the review!

Box

Tucked inside my cardboard box was a lovely little fabric topped Mason jar filled with cajeta traditional goat milk caramel sauce from Bliss Farms Dry Goods.  They describe themselves as a “sweet little family owned micro farm in Northern Arizona”.  They “create fine foods, body care products, visual/funcational art, jewelry and ceramics.”

Open Box

Verdict:
Hit!

Ingredients are listed as: Goat Milk, evaporated cane juice, Mexican vanilla bean, baking soda
Caramel sauce is a perfect item for the fall.  My birthday is in October and I typically find myself entertaining friends and relatives so I think I’m going to use this sauce in an amazing caramel apple cheesecake dip recipe.  You can check it out here, but be forewarned it’s addicting.

Caramel

I couldn’t find the caramel sauce in the Bliss Farms’ Etsy store, but if you’re dying for a jar, I’d shoot them an email request.  I have no idea how much this costs, but I’d give it a value about $8.00.  So far Fair Ivy has sent me a fabulous silver and gold plated necklace and this awesome caramel sauce.  I can’t wait to see what the last package for September will bring.

THE BACKSTORY

A jewelry only subscription at $25.00 a month (plus shipping) for 1 jewelry item per month.  (This option will ship in the US, Canada & the UK).

Or

An original subscription at $40.00 a month (plus shipping) of 3 handmade items (1 item will be jewelry).  (This option only ships in the US).

Because the items ship directly from the artisans, if you choose an original subscription you will receive the packages individually throughout the month.

DISCOUNT CODE:  NEWSLETTER2 will get you $2.00 off either subscription.
