This was the first time I was able to get a subscription to The Sampler, which is according to the website an ever-changing monthly collection of samples, goodies, promos and more from indie crafters, record labels and zines - mailed right to your door!
As I just adore one of a kind, handcrafted items I was incredibly excited to receive my Sampler package! The contents of my sampler include (from left to right) :
A glass hair pin from Starving Artist Bazzar
A ring from Lolly World
A zippered pouch with a blue chick on it from Wonderland Q
A robot patch from ArtAngel
"Talco Delicato Mr. Robato"
A mixed-media collage print from Love, Joleen
A mini letter set from Sewing Stars
Issue #8 of Ready Made Magazine
A silk flower pin from Lindsay Designs
A mini note card from Glamscience
A mini art piece from James in May
A button on a card with mini markers in the package from Button Arcade
A Memory card pin and button magnet from Cute as a button
A mini blank book craft kit from Turtle Kisses
A "Little Familiar" button from Little Pagans
A flying dog card from Flying Fish Design
A pair of brown stone chip earrings from Tiny Airplanes
A sample of lemon-lime hand scrub from Innerglo home spa products
I'm really happy with the contents of my sampler package. The subscriptions run $15 for one month and $39 for 3 months (more for an international subscription) which includes shipping and handling. I bought a three month subscription and without a doubt subscribe to subsequent samplers!
