It’s been a while since I posted but over the last few weeks I’ve been thinking about the ability to make a Closet Geek subscription box. In the past I have subscribed to Loot Crate, Nerd Block, My Geek Box etc., along with many beauty boxes such as Birchbox, Glossybox and My Little Box. I’m a bit of a sucker for Subscription boxes to be honest, as I love the surprise (much like opening up these new Disney Lego mini figure packs!). The thing I love about these boxes is getting items that are completely unknown but the thing I hate is if I get a fandom I’m not really into or a product I won’t use. As such, I would love to tailor make my boxes to suit what people would like.
Right now, my concept is definitely a handmade Disney inspired box – largely because the majority of items I stock are Disney themed. I haven’t fully worked out the logistics yet but either a price tiered system (pick your box from £5, £10 or £20 type thing) or just one price (£20) and a theme.
Included in the box would be items such as hair bows, mickey ears, jewellery, bunting, keyrings etc. but I would hope to expand what I offer into t-shirts and home decor too. Ideally I would like to add an art print or two into each box as well. It might even be good to offer items that aren’t actually available in my store, so they are exclusives of sorts. Right now, it’s just a concept but if there is enough interest I could offer a “pilot” edition with a limited number for those who would like to try it out. I would even consider some free for review boxes, to any bloggers who might be interested.
If you have any thoughts, I would love to hear them, so please let me know. If you haven’t visited my Closet Geek Etsy Store before then please do as this would give you an idea of the items I would be offering.
