Rain City Box – Seattle {and beyond} delivered right to your door

Sponsored postIt’s no secret that we’re big fans of the Pacific Northwest here at Rave & Review. Having grown up in the Seattle area, our whole lives are here and it’s the only place we can imagine calling home. We show our Pacific Northwest pride with hashtags, Seahawks gear, and our “we don’t care if it rains, we all have hoods” attitude, but if only there was some other way.

A way to buy local, show our PNW pride, and a way to keep our favorite local companies in business. Even better if all of this was in one place and could be delivered right to your doorstep. Seattle by ferryThat’s the mission behind the new Rain City Box. By working with Pacific Northwest vendors and artisans to share the taste, sights, and wares of this city we call home, Rain City Box makes it easy to order up some local pride, or gift it to other PNW fans.

Mission: Cascadia

Cascadia is an independent movement to foster connections and pride within the Nortwest region. Rain City Box calls their curated boxes a sampling of the very best the Northwest has to offer, and after the first look at the new box, I have to agree.

What’s in the box?

With local favorites like Alchemy Goods, a company that takes items most people would call junk {blown out bike inner tubes, old seat belts, banners} and turns them into useful and beautiful objects. We’ve been eyeing their messenger bags and accessories for years, so we were thrilled when we found their Holey Keychain in the box.   Alchemy GoodsI was really excited to see some local artists in the box I had never heard of before, like Townie shades. With regionally authentic eyewear designed here in Seattle, they offer awesome shades for men and women that not only look awesome, but also are doing awesome things to give back to our communities with each pair of glasses sold. The Townie Shades 2.0 are probably my favorite thing in the box this month, and I can already tell they are going to be favorites around here.  Townie glassesWith our rainy reputation, it may seem like “Seattle” and “sunglasses” don’t belong together, but everyone that loves Seattle knows that sunglasses are very much a necessity around here. Us locals know that the best way to enjoy this beautiful place we call home is to get outside and explore in it, and for that you need a good pair of shades – summer and in winter. Rain City Box happyWe also know that the Seattle rain thing is very much overplayed, so while we enjoy our gorgeous weather, our picture-perfect scenery and the laid-back city life, we are thrilled that everyone fearing a raindrop or two stays away. Townie shadesOf course I have to mention the awesome t-shirt in this month’s box designed by Josh Warren. With an abstract compass showing the Pacific Northwest printed on a heathered blue shirt, I can already tell it’s going to be a well-loved shirt. Straight out of the box it was super soft with a vintage feel, and I can only imagine it will become even more so with the many washings in its future. The designer, Josh Warren, also designed the poster cards included in the box, which would look great framed.

Throw them in your pack for the trail or keep them in the car on your next road trip. Because our gorgeous scenery is even more so when you’re not hungry.
