    Well, my surprise boxes came already and boy was I surprised!

    For all the talk about the perils of having somebody else pick your surprise boxes and send them home to you, I can think of one more ... you don't have the chance to trade with others!

    So now I am stuck with a $25 box that contains many items I would never have purchased that will not sell well at fairs. Many of the items are currently in the outlet You'll see a lot of those items in the Marketplace soon!

    Sometime later, I may share what's in them but I know how people are about "spoilers" so I won't. Just wanted to praise FedEx!

    Heather,

    they didn't but they did have "golden" tickets in some boxes that allowed you to get another "special box" 2 of my cluster mates got them and they got backpacks! there was other items too in the "special boxes"..

    I don't know what they had ... I asked for a $10 and a $15 and got a $10 and a $25 .. I am NOT happy about that because I was not looking for big, clunky items that are hard to take to fairs!

    The $25 box ... I guess it's OK to say since it's after 1 ... had TWO oil dipping sets that are in the outlet. Somehow I doubt I'm going to be able to unload them for outlet price.

    I heard that everything in the surprise boxes were from the Outlet so I used my money on the supplies!

    Yes, everything is or was n the outlet ... however, many of these items (like the scrapers and towels and knives) sell well at fairs. There are also times people are looking for a gift who don't want to bother with ordering it.

    That is exactly what I was thinking when I was watching (and being totally entertained by it). The perk of being at conference is you don't get stuck with several bread tubes!!! I bought a $10 box just to have stuff to trade to get what I really wanted!
