The box is actually a big black box and the items inside are wrapped in black tissue paper. Instead of an information card, you received a personalized note since each box is planned for the individual customer. I had seen some of the other boxes opened and was on the fence about continuing my subscription because those items really weren't things I would like. Again, though, since I filled out a survey about my personality, I knew that they may not be reflective of what I received.
My mailman hates me, I think, because so many of my boxes come to me looking like this. :(
Fortunately, everything inside was still safe! There was a bottle of black nail polish, which seems somewhat requisite for a box like this. There was also an awesome clip/key chain of a planchette. I love this because it's small enough to not get in the way of your keys. It's also cute and I admit I'm really into things like Tarot and Ouija.
Also included was a change purse that probably doesn't scream goth or dark, but I really like it! I love to travel and this is the kind of item I would use. It's sturdy, too, and that's one of the most annoying things about coin purses or small wallets when you travel. (I try to have special travel wallets because I can keep different currencies separated.)
Just a side note before getting to the last items: everything was wrapped in pages from books. This is a great way to recycle books (I know I have a ton I need to get rid of somehow), although I admit it hurts my heart a little to think of pages being torn out of books. Still, I completely get how hard it is to figure out what to do with extra books and I'm in the midst of that mess myself right now.
When I got to the last items, which were two necklaces, I knew this was definitely a subscription to keep! One necklace was a simple silver/triangle combination and I enjoyed the minimalist style of it. The other, though, actually caused me to squeal a little bit! It's a TARDIS!! :D My husband just laughed and shook his head, because I was so excited about it.
The only problem I had with the necklaces was that the chains were short and I like my necklaces super long. However, I can get myself another chain for the TARDIS, I think, and I made a note in my revised survey. I'm so difficult when it comes to things like this, I know!
