Our first Ooh La La Box seasonal subscription box was a sell out!
Thank you so much to everyone who subscribing to the Ooh La La Box and have sent us such amazing comments and feedback!
The Ooh La La Box was an idea developed after our Spring Out of Hand (Ooh) Modern Market was cancelled. It’s an entirely different way to bring makers and shoppers together. I am excited the idea is now a reality and so glad our subscribers love their boxes!
We worked with eight amazing makers to create the first Ooh La La Box. It’s a small representation of the beautiful hand made goods found at Out of Hand Modern Market. It is inspired by summer fun and sun, the colour pink, and a few personal inspirations and preferences – raspberries remind me of my grandmother’s backyard, the scent of plumeria transports me to Maui, I love sweet treats and cocktails, gorgeous jewellery, and being in the company of family and friends on warm summer evenings.
With all the boxes now delivered I am thrilled to reveal what was inside our Summer Ooh La La Box:
Gold Tinsel Earrings by Leah Yard Designs, Vancouver
These have to be one of the sexiest pair of hoops ever. When dressing to (finally) go out these earrings will be the perfect finishing touch to your outfit. Jewellery designer Leah Yard has created these gorgeous curved hoop earrings and made them by hand with 14 Karat Gold Fill. Value$70
Ooh La La Summer Candle by Cordova Candle Co, Saanich
Ooh La La Box Exclusive: This candle was created just for the Ooh La La Box.
