Here's the Box Breakdown
first look in the co op craet
Our first glimpse inside the Co-Op Crate. There is a coupon to take 10% OFF their marketplace FOR LIFE!

what's in the co-op crate?
Everything that we received in our November Co-Op Crate. We just love this box. It has a farmers market feel but the items are always unique and fun. This month's theme is "Oh, what a beautiful morning." It features items that will help you start your day off right!


So what is all this stuff?


Our insert details each of the items that we received


wild violetta coffee balm
$10
Use this on your lips or skin either way the smell of coffee is going to wake you up! 

Handcrafted in San Diego this balm is organic and made with Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil Vitamin E and Coffee Essential Oil. This will probably be incredible on the cheeks in the deep winter - it provides a great barrier protection. Love the smell! 


the bacon jams
$15.00
This quirky jar contains one of the most interesting jams we've ever tried. This spread is a sweet and salty bacon-y treat if ever there was one and they just so happen to be Pennsylvanians (HOLLA)

It looks a little different from other jams but you've just got to trust it! This makes a great topping for burgers and :we: thinks chicken sandwiches!


samnieng designs
$4
We haven't received a coffee cozy in a while and we have to say we love to receive them. This hand crocheted sleeve is gray (so many hearts) and it has a cutesy little heart on it!

We love the stitching on the back and how it laces together... very pretty! Dress up your morning cuppa!


harvest and soul
This is a Co-Op Crate Box exclusive! They were included in the Launch Box but had to come back to add this top of the morning toilet spray. Blueberry Pancake scented - just spray 3-5 pumps of this and "Nobody Nose" you were in the bathroom. Oliver wanted to smell this tonight and said it smelled like jelly beans and we have to say he's kind of right!


victorian house scones
$9.95
This one pound bag of Butter Brickle Scone Mix will get you in the kitchen at once! An Indiana based company check out their site for tons of recipes! We are debating whether we should top these with our Bacon Spread? 


copper and kraft candle
$9.35
There were two possibilities you could have received as far as candle scents, the first is what we received... Cinnamon Bun a sweet and warm scent and the other was Maple Syrup and we can only imagine how divine it smells! 

Copper and Kraft hand pours their candles in New York. We have one of their candle tins in our collection already and are so happy to have received another!


all ameriCAN Canning Company
Can you have pumpkin pie for breakfast? Not really. Can you have Pumpkin Pie Butter for Breakfast? You bet your butt! 

Spread this on your morning toast (or your morning scone) for a warm, sweet treat!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Co-Op Crate is quickly grabbing our heart! We just adore the items that we received and the attention to quality and detail in each of the items that they choose for the boxes. The presentation is excellent. The Co-Op Crate comes exactly as it should and is expertly packaged. The quality is outstanding! Each of these items is created with love and with only the finest ingredients. The curation is amazing! They picked a theme and they delivered. The items included for this month's, "Oh, what a beautiful morning" theme were spot on!

As far as box economy the Co-Op Crate that we received costs $39 and while we couldn't find two of the prices we still have a value totaled at $48! We think that makes this box a steal!
