Have y'all seen Go Local Box?
It's a subscription service that brings the best locally-produced products from their Louisville manufacturers straight to your door. Founder Jay Vasse works with local vendors to curate a themed monthly box, which can be yours for only $35 per month. There's no strings -- you can cancel or skip a box at any time -- and the items are pretty fantastic.
Go Local Box sent me the April (Derby-themed) box, and I just loved it! So many wonderful items; it was like a mini-Derby Party in a box!
The April 2015 Go Local Box includes:
- A Derby Pie tart
- Bourbon Truffles from Art Eatables
- A Kentucky Derby Candle from Craft41Love
- Mint Julep Mixer from Old Honey Barn
- Bourbon Sugar Scrub
- Horseshoe Pendant from Woodwear by Andrea
That's a pretty fabulous assortment of products. It would make a fantastic present for your favorite homesick Kentuckian, or would be a great way to help yourself to the latest locally-made products. The customer service is pretty great, too. When my box arrived with a broken candle, Jay dropped off a new one at my front door that evening. I can't guarantee he'll deliver that same level of service for everybody, but he assures me that if there's anything amiss with your shipment, he'll make it right!
