I’m very excited about a new(ish) subscription called Little Lace Box. Their motto is a box that is “for women who know they’re worth it”. A very tall order!
I missed out on LLB’s September box, which included some beautiful home items that I totally lusted after. I couldn’t purchase the box after the fact but was able to sign up for October’s box which promised to get a girl party ready, and November’s box, which was based on the holiday poem, “The Night Before Christmas” (actual title “A Visit from St. Nicholas“). The latter, I particularly loved and felt like the LLB ladies had really outdone themselves.
So when I received notice that December’s box would have the theme “A Fresh New Start”, I thought how great it would be to send this December box to my mom as a bit of a pick-me-up.
Recently, mom’s been going through a bit of a tough time. She has worked really hard all her life. I mean REALLY hard…she picked cotton in the fields at the age of two. Fresh out of high school, she joined the Marine Corps and served her country. She worked in factories after she got out and eventually earned her electrician’s certification. I would love to say that after all that, she is now getting to relax as a retiree as she deserves…but life happens sometimes. So it’s a tough time for her right now and I knew when I saw this box that it would be just the thing to raise her spirits.
However, LLB boxes are so popular that when I went to order, they were all sold out! Having experienced LLB’s wonderful customer service in the past, I wrote them a heartfelt email asking (begging) if there was any possible way I could get this box for my mom, or alternatively, have my own shipped to her instead. They wrote back almost within the day and expressed how sorry they were to hear that mom was experiencing some hardships. They also promised to make a special order happen so that I could get her a box too!
I’m getting a little teary-eyed because when my mom and I spoke after she had received it, she was so excited and pleased by the box! She gushed at how it was such a neat idea and how she loved everything she received. She said that everything was so unique and well put together that she just felt really special and thought of. -smile-
Look people…there are businesses and their bottom line is their bottom line. And then their are companies that truly value the work that they do, and their customers…that, even more profoundly, value people and relationships. Thank you Little Lace Box for being the latter!
