In line with my love of local foods, I also love handmade products because they tell a story and I like knowing that the piece that I own is not like anything else you will see. When the ladies at Umba Box offered me a box to review, I could not say yes any faster!

Natasha J Collection Half Moon Necklace Patina – Value $20
I cannot decide if I like the coloring or the design of this necklace more. The mix of green ceramic with the gold give is a worn vintage feel which is very much my style. I normally would complain about the length of the necklace being too short for my taste, but I wore it anyway and it really was not bad at all!
Fox and Anchor Paper Black Box Coasters (Set of 4) – Value $8
It took me a moment to realize these were coasters. To be honest, it took me until I read the information card to truly appreciate their value. Each aspect of the coaster, including the inking was completely handmade. That is so impressive in my opinion!
Thoughts: I am so happy with this box, especially the necklace. I’ve already worn it out and received a few compliments. I feel great wearing it! I never would have expected to get something like coasters in a box, but now that I have them, I am happy to get them! I think considering that each piece was made by hand, this Umba Box was definitely worth the price tag.
