When I first opened the box (top left picture) there was the description sheet with a wax seal, and this lovely acorn ornament, with a thank you note for helping to spread the word about NES.
This ornament is so awesome, I love it. It's is from Glitter Works Studio and the little note on it says "From tiny acorns might oaks grow". It's adorable and it immediately went right on my tree.

I really like this month's New England Sack and I'm happy that I have a 3 month subscription, so I get to look forward to 2 more! As you can see in the photo to the left, also included is a real New England Sack!
I like that the products are made in New England and they all have a story behind them that you get when you receive all of these items.
New England Sack has 3 different subscription options: 1 month is $35, 3 months is $99 and 6 months is $195. If you use the promo code of livelocal10 it will give you 10% off of any subscription! http://www.newenglandsack.com/
