Ohio Box - Modest Box

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

I love local boxes, and they are just so special.  I was about to order the Modest Box, named after the opposite of BIG box to stand for modest local shops, is an curated box Ohio themed box, but didn't With the modest box, there are three options:
  1. Local Love Box: $39/month
  2. T-shirt box: $56/month
  3. The Big Box: $89/month (gender specific) - this one is funny since in an interview with the founder of the box they called it the "modest" box because they wanted to be the opposite of "BIG"

Regardless of the name, all the boxes seem really interesting, especially the Big Box being gender specific.  It is probably on the cheaper side for "male" specific lifestyle boxes.  Also when I traveled through Ohio, I saw one of the most creative T-shirt designs as well, and I can't wait to see what they will include in the T-shirt boxes.

I ended up not ordering the box because of the $8 flat shipping rate in addition to the monthly subscription price.  While I know these small shops do have to pay a lot for shipping, it seems expensive to add $8 for shipping on top of $39, making the box $47/month, or basically putting the Big Box at almost $100.  Does seem a little steep - unless they knock it out of the park, which is very hard for smaller shops because everyone's base cost is so much higher.

So I will think over this again before ordering...
