Lucky Dip Club Folksy Box

UK handmade fans were up bright and early last week to try and grab one of 300 Lucky Dip Club Folksy boxes that went on sale at 7am. I managed to get one, but the website crashed under the huge demand and the boxes sold out in minutes #TEAMHANDMADE.

So what was the fuss all about? Lucky Dip Club collaborated with 15 Folksy designers to bring us a colourful collection of handmade items that were exclusively designed for the box.

If you’re still waiting for your box and don’t want the surprise ruined, I suggest you read once you have opened yours – SPOILER ALERT!

I received the cutest ceramic ice cream from Little Birdy Crafts.

I adore I am Acrylic’s creations, so I was really excited to see this carrot pin in the box. Their pieces are all cut by hand – these guys are killing it on the handmade scene at the moment.

I like that the box introduced me to some new makers I hadn’t heard of too. Red Hang Gang included the cutest kawaii designs.

I paid £25 for the box which included £40 worth of quality handmade/designed items. I’m so chuffed with the selection I received and as ever, the delivery was super quick.

I also subscribe to the monthly box from Lucky Dip Club (Leona now puts together around 1100 boxes every month!), but there are one-off boxes and individual items available on the website here.

I do hope Folksy will be doing another one of these boxes again soon. It’s great to see UK designer makers being celebrated!
