Lost Crates August 2011

My first Lost Crates subscription arrived and I'm really pleased to see the colorful items added to the list.

The way this is packaged adds to the nostalgia, brown paper tied with string. I'm waiting for Sam Clemens to come along with a pocket knife and open it for me at the knot, saving the string for whatever use he may have on the Mississippi.

Primary colors seem to rule this group, now I'm thinking I may have to re-take the test and add the paisley or plaid sample to see what shows up next.

I'm pleased with this first Crate, which is anchored by the large Moleskine journal. The contents are:

*one bright red, blank Moleskine journal

*one bright yellow New York State Field Notes memo book

*one bright blue Made by Humans Eco Stapler (really looking forward to trying this)

*one Joshua Davis blue rollerball from Miquel-Ruis

*two Pop Ink blank memo books from The French Paper Company.


  1. Okay, this subscription definitely has my attention. I have never heard of it before, but that seems like a great lineup. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I forgot to link to Lost Crates, but there is one in the Buying section on the right if you're interested.

    What seems to be the format is one larger, more expensive item that anchors the set, then three to four mid-sized/medium-priced items.
