It arrived yesterday.  There are some nice goodies, including a couple things I am definitely keeping. 

I meed to go through a second time and then repack.  I may get a new box too.

But now we also have to start the search for who wants next!

I really appreciated how well it was packed when I received it.  Whoever put all of the smaller items in sandwich bags was really (I'm sorry) thinking outside of the box.  :2tu:

Glad you got it, Sos :woohoo: it has been a very well traveled package that's for sure :ahhh :like:

I have had it twice and may make it a third time later on this year :think: but I would much rather others get to enjoy it as much as possible :tu: :like: :like:

Here is my haul.  There were other tempting items, but wanted to leave for others. 

I have also chosen some items to add already.

So who is next.

Neat items you selected SOS!

I am with Poncho, so much intrigue after the box makes a stop!

The receiver selects what appeals to them, then feels quilts and adds more treasures to the box for the next member to select🤪

Maybe change the box’s name!  The Guilty Pleasures Box, or Temptations & Gifts…

If and when it visits Poncho, I will take it after him👍

Then again we could play KEEP AWAY!
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

I forgot to include it in the picture, but  I also claimed a Rite in the Rain pen. 

I am still surprised how few people want to see what is in the box.

So true and yet so funny.  Originally, the box was just take something then pass on.  No need to add unless you took more than 1 item.  No the box has grown with people just adding, whether out of guilt or desire to gift what they aren’t using.

When I got it it seemed to be added to and not taken from.  I think interest was in seeing what was in it but the MTO generosity had people adding and adding.  Remember I split in two and sent one over seas. 

Glad it'll take a second and third trip around.  Also glad you found some things to remove. 

I think I'll take it after LC.  Curiosity has got me.

I received one of the original boxes from Sherry, although, it feels like that was a hundred years ago already.  I'd like to take the surprise box again as well.  It's so much fun discovering what new things are in the box that I don't get why everyone isn't coming forward for this.  I guess some folks just don't want to share their address. :cheers:

With a lot of items that need to find a new home, I'm back in. Last time around, it went from me to Alan. This time it'll be the opposite way. Should be fun! :popcorn:

Of tracking is correct  :whistle: I may get the box today :ahhh :woohoo: :like: :like:

Great that it is getting here so fast :like: :like:

Sos sent me some SAKs and parts during pandemic times and it took forever to get here :ahhh then after I sent her the mod back it took a long while as well :ahhh

You should have seen the places it went back and forth to on its way here and back :facepalm: :rofl:

I am so glad that shipping seems to be much better than in those days :D

It's the post office's fault.  They charge you the same flat rate for a priority shipping box regardless of how much is in it or how much it weighs, so it just seems a shame to waste it with empty space. :cheers:
