A few weeks back, Alfred Chow – Maker of Things shared with me the idea of the #SurpriseMakerParcel.
The concept is that you get a small box and fill it (upto 2Kg to keep the postage down) full of interesting things for makers. Then send it out for the price of the postage. A bit like those subscription boxes but without the subscription and sharing out other people’s surplus. I find as a maker it’s easy to end up with multiples of a component due to bulk purchases or left over material from a completed project. So this can be a good way of making space as well as helping out a fellow maker.
Alfred has done a great selection with this box and there’s a mix of useful and interesting items. Watch the video for more details.
So what would you want in a Surprise Makers Parcel? Components? Materials? Tools?
