Sampler Villiage Box Video Review & Giveaway - ENDED


Sampler Village is a gathering of crafters and artisans (villagers) who send in samples to be in the Sampler Village sample boxes. You might remember a previous review I did on Sampler Village, well they recently asked me to do a video review for their Mother's Day Sampler Box and I happily agreed! I absolutely love receiving sample boxes from Sampler Village, it always feels like I'm opening lots of little birthday gifts. This would be such a fun treat to send to your mom for Mother's Day! So, I give you my first ever video review (please remember that the camera adds 10 pounds and please forgive my annoying voice lol):

great video, enjoyed seeing what you got in the box. My daughter and I love getting sampler boxes, because we love to open up our surprises, give them as gifts or use them up ourselves. It also gives me a great idea on who to mark off on my faves on Etsy for future shopping too! I've never tried this brand of sampler boxes, so might have to check it out after seeing your video!

What I like about Sampler Village is the variety of different items they place in each Sampler Box. And you can even purchase a specific sample box of, let's say...Cherry stuff. Well, they put samples of only Cherry stuff in your box. They are great.
