Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

[ Edited ]



There was someone who was going to do a foils/small sample TSB. I do not believe that person is still going to do it. If they are, I apologize and will not do one. I have been in two boxes and loved it but I have never started one. If anyone is still interested, I am willing to try to start  one. We can use the same rules from the other TSB. Please let me know if anyone is interested. Also we need to decide if we want to do this with a small flat rate box (I believe shipping is around $6.00) or a medium flat rate box (I believe shipping is around 13.00). If you are going to participate, please be prepared for the shipping costs! This box is open for US shipping only. Shipping becomes more expensive for Canada.


Once we decide if we want to do a small or medium box I will post pics of what I will start the box out with. If at that time someone decides they don't like what I am starting the box out with just let me know. I want this to be fun for all.


Once I get the box back I will go through it & give the leftover items to the local youth group who works with the homeless shelters in Fredericksburg VA.

Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

I am so sorry this happen to you. If it make you feel any better I walked out side and got pooped on by a bird. That is how my day started and has not gotten any better.

Missey, I forgot to tell you that this did make me lol and feel better.  Smiley Very Happy That's comedy gold.  I'm sorry it happened to you though!

Chelsd did you get the box back? How did everything go?

Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

Wow such a nice box. I wish I had joined this box.

Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

Chelsd if the address is correct I would get the post office to pay for the resending. I'm sorry that you have to send it again Smiley Sad I was in another TBS and they had no problem with the address so I'm not sure what's going on. I just thought it was odd that I had not gotten the box within the 3 days of priority mail so I called them, but they didn''t call me back. I also gave them the USPS number but they didn't deliver the package.


Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

Any news on the box yet?

Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

I am waiting to get the box in the mail.  Either I made a mistake with the address, or as Onceuponatime45 said it looked like the post office may have made a mistake.  I will have to try to resend it, but will be quite disappointed and nervous to resend it if I had the address correct the first time, as they may have trouble delivering to that address for some reason.  I will try to sort this out promptly and get it back on its way.  The repeat postage is a bit of a bummer, but I won't disappoint you gals.  I'm sorry for the set back.

Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

I am really sorry this happened to you. Hopefully the post office wont make you pay again. It the last box I was in, it took about 20 days for the box to get to me. I kept wondering if I had some how messed up my address but it was just the post office. I got no reason from them except a sorry. It is a real bummer with this happens to you.

Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

If it turns out it was the post office's mistake, I would hope that you wouldn't have to pay the repeat postage.

I called UPSP last night and gave them the tracking number and told them that was my packgage. They still returned it back to chelsd Smiley Sad......

Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

What?  Oh no!  Why did that happen?

Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

Chelsd It took me about 4 tries to finally close the last box I was in Smiley Happy Don't worry about the foundation. I thought you wanted to look "lighter" Smiley Wink If you're going for a tan look, then it works.


Missey I will take out the pink bag if it's taking up too much space. I have a smaller one that I can replace it with.


Update for everyone: I have not received the box. It is still "in transit" according to UPS.


Great additions btw

No, you were spot on.  I am trying to match my skin tone, but in lieu of not actually having a good match, I try to make what I have work.  I'm kinda obsessed with "using stuff up" instead of just chucking it and moving on.  The quest continues.  Have fun with the box!

Onceuponatime45, if it helps, you can remove the pink make up bag if it is taking up too much space. I had put it in there just in case someone wanted it.

Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

WOW I cannot believe this box is almost done. I looked into taking pictures of the place we will be donating too and they don't allow pictures. The reason is, this shelter is for battered woman and children and some of them do not want their location know for safety reasons. The origination is called Empower House.

Re: Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box

Alrighty; I just got this box sealed up.  I had to remove boxes from everything I could (except the Chanel lotion, cause, CHANEL!)  I hope you don't mind, the cards from the Becca samples, the box from the Giovanni Hair wipes, the pamphlet from the vBbaute goodies, the cards from the fragrance samples, etc, could not make it into the box.  Onceuponatime45 will understand when she sees the box; it's a beast!
