What is the "Little Black Box"

I have decided that on the weekends I am going to take a break from blogging.....partially. There are occasionally some interesting things that I want to share with my readers and I will do that on the weekends.
Today I would like to answer the question...."What is a Little Black Box". I had never heard about it until last month when I followed a link on the Etsy forums in answer to the very same question. After looking at the site I sent an email and before I knew it I was committed to be in the November box- which I am thrilled about!
In a nutshell...the "Little Black Box" is a box that contains about 20 samples from on-line retailers advertising their products. The box can be purchased by interested parties directly from the web-site. Currently they are selling about 200-300 boxes per month with some of those going to the media. And I must say that for the price of around $25 (changing monthly depending on what is included) it is a steal!
Go to the website- you will find more information about who is included for the current month as well as FAQ's for interested business as well as those interested in purchasing. One of the most interesting things I found there was the forums - one of them allowing customers to give feedback on the particular seller and item.
Each of my little packages is different. Some are worth more than $40 wholesale price. I have included sterling silver, swarovski crystal and gemstone necklaces, earrings and bracelets. The item in the picture is reserved for Kim- the creator of the box. I got a little creative with my packaging as I wanted to include a postcard showing some new designs (picture shows a mock up) and still have my jewelry presented in the nice craft box that I usually package it in when I get an order.
So, get yourself a Little Black Box and see what all the buzz is about!

I have bought the last 2 LBB's and they are wonderful! Worth so much more than what you pay for!

Thanks for the comment... And I hope the LBB will be good for you too! Your idea was my original intention... about 50 items, all different, but when I upped it to 200... had to simplify! LOL
Your packaging looks very nice! I wish you lots of luck with it as well!
