Review:Flicker Box


I'm so excited to tell you about my newest find and addiction! SUBSCRIPTION BOXES! Here is my first review of an awesome find that I have fallen in love with. I was recently given the opportunity to work with a company called Flicker Box. It's a monthly subscription service for candle lovers!  Flicker Box is inspired by a love and appreciation for handmade candles.  Their mission is to connect candle lovers with people who love to make candles. They scour the United States to find candle makers who create candles with a unique quality and want to share those qualities with you and your home. Flicker Box shares their stories and ships subscribers a delightfully curated box right to your front door!
So here is the lovely box I found on my doorstep.
As I cut the packing tape my senses were assaulted by the heavenly smells of autumn that filled my kitchen and had my husband wandering in to see where the wonderful smells were coming from.
Atop the wrapping was a detailed card that explained exactly where each candle was made as well as the ingredients used to make them.   
The top layer of my package contained an adorable candle by The Flying Farm. Owner Rachel is just debuting her Etsy business and creates her candles out of South Carolina. Each one is filled with natural soy wax and is free from dyes. She uses mason jars as containers and urges you to reuse and recycle. The value of this candle is $10.50
The next layer of goodness were these super awesome tea lights by Witch City Wicks,
one package was called Trick or Treat and the other was called Poison Apple. I loved the packaging and art work on them! These tea lights come straight from Salem, MA and are made from 100% all-natural soy wax, color dye and lead free with cotton wicks. Each tea light will burn up to 4 hours! Each package of tea lights is $5.50 each
And finally we get to the bottom of this beautiful box of goodies.
What would October be without a pumpkin? This gorgeous candle is made by Armadilla Wax Works and handcrafted out of Prescott, Arizona. I'll be honest-it's almost too pretty to burn. But the cool thing is that this pumpkin is actually a floating candle. The value is $7.50. Lastly there were three white candle nestled in the bottom. These candles are made by Mosely Lane who create candle with soy wax and bees wax-a perfect combination of Mother nature. These little cuties are made in Oxford Ohio and include 3 Halloween inspired fragrances. Color coordinated by a mark on the bottom of the candle. Orange=The Witching Hour, Blue=All Hallows Eve, Green=Spiced Pumpkin. The value of these candles are $2.50 each.
This box was filled to the brim with wonderful goodness! My house smells like my favorite season-Autumn!
And here's just an extra little Halloween treat that Flicker Box included just for fun. 
Here's the thing- we all love candles! We love the way they smell, we love the way they make a room look. Candles can change a mood in a moment. I love this subscription box and everything they stand for.
They are out there discovering the small companies that aren't or can't sell in the big name store. It's also a great way for a smaller candle artists or companies to get their products into the hands of subscribers around the country. This month's box was valued at $36.50, and it included a branded matchbox and a bag of sweet treats!. With the shipping included you are getting quite a deal at the $32 price tag a month.The other option you have is to sign up for a subscription which makes Flicker Box cost as low as $25 a month, It can be purchased as an automatically-renewing monthly subscription or 3, 6, or 12 month term subscriptions. 
I just loved the care that went into the creating of this month's box-All things Fall. I'm hooked! I happily recommend Flicker Box and I hope you will go check them out. The owner of Flicker Box is offering to Mug of Moxie Followers the opportunity to take 10% off 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions using REVIEW2013-with a year subscription that $270 or $22.50 a month. A HUGE saving!
Just to spice this review up a little bit I'm offering an incentive to go check the Flicker Box web page out-go take a look around and come back here-in the comment section tell me the founder's name and where her company is based out of. The prize.... a tea light package of your choice(fifth picture down) Poison apple or Trick or Treat PLUS some of my favorite Halloween candy thrown in for fun! 
The drawing for the winner will take place Sunday night. Good Luck! This contest is open to US followers. Go! Go! Go!
