what's in the handmade hive august box
Everything that we received in our August Handmade Hive Box. This month’s theme is “There is No Theme” and includes fab products that helps us Discover America… One Box at a Time!

So what is all this stuff?

Our box insert – this details each of the items that we received as well as retail values
firefly wine light
$10
Made in California this mini light and all purchases made from Firefly Wine Lights go towards raising awareness for Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
We love this and think it makes an excellent night light!
butterflies bakeshop
$4.95 (each)
We received 3 of these ADORABLE tiny pound cakes. Each was a different lemon flavor and were so tasty! It’s funny because Handmade Hive is a somewhat local box for us but we used to live in NOVA where Butterflies Bakeshop is located! Small world!
We received a lemon…
And a Meyer Lemon which, if you aren’t familiar with the difference between a regular lemon and a Meyer Lemon – the Meyer Lemon is thought to be crossed with a Mandarin Orange.
And finally a Lemon Blueberry pound cake. We shared these with the kids and some of the neighborhood kids as well and this was the big winner!
Berry Bowl from Julie Miller Pottery
julie miller potter
$22
Our box favorite for the month is this ceramic berry bowl. Perfect for all your summer fruit pickings – wash your fruit and drain it and keep it in the same bowl for eating!
We are in love with the finish and the size and absolutely everything about this pretty piece!
305 leather keychain
$10
We are loving the earth tones of this brown leather keychain! 305 Leather Keychains is located in Florida and makes some stunning personalized keychains as well!
We gave this to our husband and he really liked it!
this granola is nuts
$4
This granola is vegan, paleo and gluten free. But don’t be fooled … just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean it’s compromised its delicious flavor – because it hasn’t!

This sweet concoction is made in New York and combines whole nuts with delicious maple syrup for a full bodied flavor!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Handmade Hive Box is as always an excellent mix of items that are useful but never compromise they’re beauty! The presentation is awesome – everything arrives perfectly. The quality is amazing – each of these items is handcrafted and made with quality ingredients. And curation – this month the focus was the products less than the overall theme and we have to say that the products we received were incredible!
As far as box economy the Handmade Hive Box costs $44.95 and for that we received $61 in items which is an awesome deal!
