Quarterly Co. My Subscription Addiction #MSA02

Quarterly Co. is a slightly different kind of subscription box company.  It's not a monthly box but it's quarterly.  The way it works is you pick a "contributor" you would like to receive a curated gift from anywhere from $50-$100 and every 3 months you will receive your item in the mail from them.  With each shipment you receive the story behind why the items were chosen. This box is from Liz Cadman of My Subscription Addiction. Who better to curate a subscription box than a subscription box addict? If you've been getting subscription boxes for awhile then you know what makes a good box so I knew this would be a great box! 

Price $50 every 3 months.  

This is available in the US only and ships from El Dorado Hills, Ca - although the box says it's packed in Los Angeles. 

The good:

Variety: There are lots of different curators to choose from.

Something different: This is definitely different from other subscription companies

Commitment issues? Don't want to make a monthly commitment but still want a treasure?  You can get a quarterly treasure. 

Information: Liz provides lots of info on each item in her box, including where to get the item and the price. 

The not so good:

Don't like waiting: If you don't like waiting this may be torture for you.

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Faribault Woolen Mill Co. Recycled Wool Throw in Red Whip Stitching. Value = $64.00

Foot Traffic Purple Fuzzy Slipper Socks. Value = $9.00

Bauble Bar Ice Circle Pendant. Value = $32.00

Au Naturale Creme Eye Shadows in White Quartz & Addiction. Value = $40.00

Yes to Carrots Night Creme. Value = $13.00

Next Issue App 2 months free and 2 months 50% discount. Value = $29.98

The approximate value of this box is $187.98 or $158.00 not including the app. I think this blanket it fabulous and I love the colors. I'm hoping to swap for another one to keep as a gift. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the pet hair collecting on it since it's wool. I'm also going to save the socks for a gift especially since they have grippy bottoms. I would feel horrible if someone fell while wearing slippers I gave them. I think the necklace is pretty but it's not something I would wear. The teenager has a birthday coming up though and I think this will be a great gift. I think it's so cool that the eyeshadow is a custom color for MSA and I can't wait to try it. I may or may not try the app. I've tried going digital with papers and magazines but I still like holding the actually paper. 

Verdict: MSA curated a terrific winter cozy box with the blanket and socks.
