This felt like I was opening a gift - there was a sticker and a booklet detailing what was inside the box, along with where each item came from.
Everything was packaged carefully to avoid breakage - wouldn't that be the worst, to open up a box of pottery shards? Not a problem with GlobeIn - I consider myself the queen of overwrapping things for shipment, but I do believe they rival me in the bubble wrap department!
The goodies - a spoon rest and matching salt and pepper shakers, made in the Palestinian Territories, a neem wood spice bowl made in India, and Ilocano Asin sea salt, tucked into a handwoven box, from the Philippines.
Everything is so pretty and well-made! I'm loving the deep colors of the ceramics - the spoon rest looks great on my stove, and I've been needing a pair of salt and pepper shakers to use as I'm cooking, so this set is perfect for me!
The sea salt is meant for the wooden bowl, but I may steal that to hold stitch markers for my knitting and instead, use a clay spice bowl that I already own for the salt (I don't think it would work in the salt shaker as it seems like it might clog up the holes - but I have some finer salt that I'll use for the shaker).
The little woven box is adorable and also might end up in my knitting supplies - what can I say, I like to use out of the ordinary things to hold my little accessories, and this box will be super cute nestled among my yarn!
I'm familiar with GlobeIn as I did a review for their subscription box over a year ago; I will say that in that time, they've really stepped up their offerings and have lots of different selections for subscribers, from kitchen to bath to jewelry.
