It is from http://www.sp3ctrum.com/Women-Support-Women.html (this also has more info but i will sum it up!)

It is a monthly box (25$), that sends out different products from small women owned business. These products can be makeup, accessories, clothes, soap, etc. It changes monthly. Each box comes with business cards so you know who to contact if you want to buy more of a certain item. There are only 100 boxes a month so they have a personalized feel. I like knowing I'm supporting small women owned business and i think its really nice to get items you know you wont get in any other boxes. =]

There used to be a "my little pink box" wonder if there is any affiliation.

 

Looks pretty plain to me, not something I would sub to. I have gotten picky with all these darn subscriptions!

I don't think they have any affiliation with them. I'm picky too so i understand where you are coming from. Its not perfect by any means, but i do like everything its stands for, and how its not like other subscriptions I'm already subscribed to.

Oh I hope you don't think I was coming off rudely. I appreciate what it stands for as well with small businesses. We need more of that!

You should get in touch with Amber Rose, she is the one who sells the box on her site, maybe you can get your product in it!

Well we actually have a printing business in San Francisco, so I don't exactly know what type of product I would advertise. Our concentration is with architects, engineers, and constructors.

No, this is completely new and unrelated to that previous box. =] (well not totally new, its been out for a few months now, but still not related, Spectrum cosmetics runs this box and it is small women owned business who contribute their products.)

i can see the appeal of it but the accessories scream tacky/cheaply made with a high mark up. the stuff i thought looked the most appealing was the soaps and cosmetics.

lol those are mine. i so agree about that to a point (the jewelery), the soaps and cosmetics were some of the best parts, but i just look at is as im supporting small women owned bussiness, and while some products may not be the best others i would have never got to try if i didn't get the box.

post #19 of 53

I'm just peeved at the idea of them sending a size small shirt to customers who may or may not be able to wear a size small. No way in hell would that fit me!  Why would you send out clothing without collecting sizes?!

hahaha i was wondering if they were yours or not! i love the mission behind it, and i know i would accumulate tons of accessories i wouldn't use but that's what gifts are for, right?

 

did you happen to sign up for december too? i'm interested in seeing who else they partner with.

I felt the exact same way considering mine was a small and I'm not anything small lol but I talked to the company and was told that it was a last minuet item that was included as a bonus and that they tried to include various popular sizes into the box. They have ten the feedback and are working on collecting that kind of information for future boxes.

They have only put out two boxes. So I don't think ever one will have accessories but I agree completely. I already gave the errings and silver bracelet away but kept the pink and blakc one because I love the key on it. So it's good for gifting too. I did sign up for december. They released two boxes so I got both versions. I will be sure to share what I got.

i gushed over that for a good 20 mins! I was comparing boxes with my friend, and couldn't get past how cute that was! People got different ones, but i think i kinda lucked out on that one!
