Review done by Bright Design

Bright Design posted this review of our bags on her blog today:

I got my Vegan Samples bag today! And it is the awesomest thing ever!!! First of all, my cool lil' tote bag has a LION on it. Can you believe it? A freakin' lion! How awesome is that? So awesome. The awesomest, even.

OK, then there's the contents. There are so many wonderful smelling things in it that I could smell them before I'd even gotten the box open. Inside, there were an unbelievable number of goodies - in the form both of samples, and of various coupons and special offers to be redeemed when visiting shops on Etsy and elsewhere.

What did the samples consist of? Soaps, earrings, pins, a fancy flower hair clip, a cool cuff, a lovely sachet, a great puppydog postcard, a cool little crocheted thingamabobber... pulling it all out was like digging into the seemingly endless well of a fantastic Magician's hat. Each item elicited a new "ooh" or "aah" or "yummy!" or "pretty!". Who was I talking to? Umm... well, myself. Whatever, you do it too.

For the variety of surprises alone, the bag was so totally worth the price! I'm just sad we have to wait until August for Sample Bag Numero Dos to appear. But never fear, it's already in the works!

Review of For My Kids

This review was written by: Pink Bubble

In my bag, from For My Kids I got this neatly packaged All Natural Comfrey Salve whose little size is seriously deceiving. Packed inside is this delicious balm to heal all sorts of bumps, bruises and bites. It smells SO much more fresh and better then balm I've used in the past and goes easily onto the skin. One of the kids I nanny is always managing to jump off something and hurt herself and has in just the few days I've had it demanded I give her more of the "cool slippery stuff" to put on.
Not probably what it was originally intended for, but my hands get all (yuck) cut up and bleed from Buffalo's winters and have been this way for MONTHS with nothing helping. Within 24 hours and just using it about 4 times my hands are smooth and cut-free! A few of my bike riding friends keep swiping the container from me too- I'll have to stop by and pick up some more!

Day by day we get closer to the first sample bags going on sale!! Tuesday is the day and we have some really great contributors this round! If you are interested in contributing samples for the next bag, please email me at for more info! We are also looking for the sponsor for the next bag, the cost is $30 (which goes straight to the sanctuary that is voted for that round) and you have your ad up from the day we sell out of this bag, until the day we sell out of the bag you are sponsoring...the second bag goes on sale in august, so that is a few months of exposure for only $30!! And it goes straight to the animals!!! The voting for sanctuaries only has a couple more days left and it is a really close call right now. We are also looking for folks who want to trade ad space on their blogs, websites, etc...please feel free to contact me if you are interested in that at all. I hope everyone is doing well, and I cant wait to get these sample bags in the mail!
