Behind The Butter

The Tethered Crate

I got a present the other day. A box from The Tethered Crate!

The Tethered Crate is a monthly gift box subscription full of handmade items from all around the Internets! I think this is so cool and an awesome way to support fellow bloggers and online friends. I was excited to see several friends in my box! What a fun surprise!

Wanna peak inside? 🙂

I got a pair of these adorable earrings from Suzie Studios. Love the lace on these little button earrings!

A super cute hair clip made by my friend, Moriah! I was so excited to see this in here….I had been wanting to purchase one of these for awhile! Love the grey, too.

A She Does Justice headband! I bought a t-shirt and headband from Megan last week actually. I love her blog and her mission. Every week, she spotlights a different nonprofit and then donates 10% of all shop sales to that charity. Love that and love her.

Last but not least, this cute print from Blossom & Vine. Perfect to prop on my desk.

So, cute, huh? I love the idea of The Tethered Crate and love supporting and encouraging my blog friends this way! Monthly boxes are $19.95 and that includes shipping. I was gifted this box, but of course, my opinions are entirely my own.

    What a fun idea! I’ve been inspired by you and I’ve been ordering all of my gifts on etsy and through small businesses. If I have to shop in the city, I look for the fair trade logo 🙂

    so far i have not gotten on the monthly box bandwagon…still trying to convince my husband that i don’t, in fact, have too many clothes (getting rid of three huge bags helped my cause). but stuff like this would be lovely, and what a good way to introduce people to small businesses!

    I enjoy how you called it “the Internets”. It made me giggle.

    Those are some beautiful, hand-crafted pieces! I love supporting local efforts whenever possible.

    Love the card. I am a sucker for cute, home-made, unique cards. I also love that places like Etsy have made it possible for so many people to showcase their talent! I love that as a culture we are moving towards local/home-made gifts.

    With all the crazy sample boxes going around these days, this one sounds like one that’s totally worth it! I love that you already know some of the people who designed and created the items in the box 🙂

    How very sweet. Now, who can I convince that I should get one of these every month. …
    Maybe my husband would take the hint if I help him find the URL for Tethered Crate.

    Aww man! I just went to sign up and they aren’t accepting subscriptions right now. bummer! But, I’ll keep checking back. I love those kinds of little surprises.

    Love this!!! I have developed a serious passion for supporting handmade and independent artisans. In my ideal world, I’d buy everything straight from the artist / blogger / producer / independent store. I’m not quite there yet, but a girl can dream. 😉

    I just think it’s bizarre that the actual contributors get ZERO commission.
