First of all, I have to say, I REALLY enjoy getting to try new products. It’s SO fun and I usually have nothing but nice things to say about a company and the products I get to try, but this is different. I’m addicted to The Fancy & their monthly box, Fancy Box. They sent me one to try (the November Box) and I loved it so much that just last night (3 days after I got my box) I became a paid subscriber and I cannot wait to get my December box! I would LOVE to be able to give one away here on TheRosySnail so I need your help! If you sign up under my referral link, I will be credited $1 to my account. When I get 30 sign-ups, I’ll be able to purchase a box to give away!! You can sign up HERE. Remember, you don’t have to make a purchase at all, just create an account 🙂 Leave a comment on this post to let me know you did that because it will count for 25 additional entries for the giveaway. You will NOT want to miss this!!
So, WHY am I so addicted?! Check out this haul!!I got all this (plus the t-shirt below) in a box that retails for $30 plus shipping ($7.95 to ship to me in Texas) and the retail on this box is insane! Not to mention, all of these are quirky, fun items that I would 100% purchase for myself and friends! I love the “odd-ball” style that comes along with Fancy Box. The Fancy is an online community that features products. It’s somewhat known as the “Pinterest of purchases”. You can search for items, by color, category, price, etc and when you find something you like, you “fancy” it. When you do that, the product is added to your Catalog which is a lot like a Pinterest “board”. Here’s My Catalog. The difference is that instead of wondering how to make or where to purchase items you see on Pinterest, you can click to purchase or go to an outside website to purchase EVERYTHING you see on The Fancy. Also, my choosing to “fancy” a product, you can earn budget that also include discounts to that specific brand. In my first 30 minutes on The Fancy, I earned 10-20% off of 6 different stores!
Even without their monthly box, The Fancy is an amazing website for people looking to purchase and gift the unique and interesting. I wonder how I got along so well without it 🙂
Like I mentioned above, you can purchase anything you see on The Fancy, but the true value really lies in their monthly box. I wanted to break down the price of what I received and you can decide for yourself!
When you sign up, you let them know all your “deets”. From shirt and shoe size to what type of products you’re looking for: gadgets, home, workspace and more. I chose home & gadgets and let them know I needed a size Large in shirts. The first thing I pulled out of my box was this shirt, it says “Party” and it has that soft, vintage feel to it. They got the size right and I can’t wait to wear this shirt (if my husband doesn’t take it from me!) This shirt is by After Hours Agenda and it retails for $20.
Next, I got this Starfield Simulation Light Kit. I wasn’t able to find this one on The Fancy, but I’ve seen these around and even seen a YouTube video on how to build this. These retail for about $15 and I have to say I love that this is a DIY. I enjoy putting things together with my husband, even when we disagree on the “right way” so we’re planning on making a date of putting this together 😉
Another home item I got was this “Cold Blooded” Vampire fang silicone ice tray. I have to say I’m not a big Vampire fan, but I happen to have a best friend who it 😉 These are well made ice trays and I know she’ll love it! This ice tray is by Doug, they make so many quality home items. I’m certainly looking forward to getting more as I continue my Fancy Box subscription. This tray sales for $7.99
Next, I got a pair of glasses from 80’s Purple. These are their Pizel sunglasses. If you can believe it, these babies retails for $12. They would make the most awesome stocking stuffer for any gamer. They come in 6 colors are feel so well made. they even come with a little pouch to store them in.
I also received the ultimate “man’s gift” of Whiskey Rocks by Sparq. This set of 9 Whsiket Rocks can also be used to cool tea, coffee or wine. (anything that you would want to cool but not water down with ice). I’ve never tried these before but I love the concept. These retail for $20.
My boys’ favorite item in the box, Mustache bandages. They thought these were hilarious. I agree, they’re pretty cute! Inside, we also got a tattoo of a boom box. (it was our FREE PRIZE INSIDE! Hehe) These retail for $10-$15. Which in my opinion is VERY high. I’ve seen novelty bandages sell for up to $4.99, but never 2-3 times that much. I’m going to call this a $5 value. It’s cute, but maybe The Fancy isn’t the place to buy these.
Perfect for the cold weather, I got these Snowglobe Salt & Pepper shakers. Little known fact, I LOVE salt and pepper shakers. I’m not sure where my fascination from them comes but I own 4 sets right now that I rotate out on my counter top. These will be a welcome addition! These retail for $15. I actually saw this same set at Target for about the same price. I was VERY happy to see these in my box!
The funniest thing I got in my box was this book “F in Exams”. This book is full of terrible Exam answers from all sorts of subjects. One of my favorite ones on the back cover. It reads, “What is the highest frequency that humans can hear?” the bad answer, Mariah Carey! Okay, it’s silly, but that’s why I love it! This book retails for $10.
Because I’m a girl, it goes without saying that I got some beauty items! I actually got TWO of these CH Nail polishes that glow in the dark! At first, I wasn’t sure if they did or not, so I put them under my UV Lamp for a few seconds and BAM, instant glow! On top of that, it glows an AMAZING jewel toned blue. I’ve never owned anything like it and I cannot wait to do a nail look for you all! These retail for $4.99 each, so this is a retail value of almost $10.
And last, but not least, I got a Blue UV lipstick. Now, this is 100% a novelty item, but I can’t help but love it! I’ve never gone to a blacklight event, but now I’m ready for the invite 😉 These retail for $35 for a set of 7, so we’ll call this $5.
Are you ready for this? My overall Total value, $120! That is insane! Fancy Box is certainly a value for the price and aside from that, it is SO, SO fun! I cannot wait to get my December box!!
