Luckily, Graveyard Mall (GYM) was there for me once again to provide a sense of mystery and gambling into my life with their Custom Mystery Box. GYM's mystery boxes are popular...so popular that they keep making new versions: Kitchen Mystery Box, Women's Mystery Box, As Seen On TV Mystery Box, Candle Mystery Box, etc... Those are all well and good, but they don't hold the same draw for me as the Custom Mystery Box. I think it is because the other mystery boxes are so limiting on what they contain. As I have said before, what you are really buying is hope and a sense of anticipation...there could be anything in the box before it actually arrives. It's the whole Schrödinger's Cat syndrome...until you actually check, it could be your dreams (or crap). The Custom Mystery Box is unique in that, you tell GYM a little about yourself and they try to pick items that will suit you...although I am sure some (most) items are overstocked and everyone probably gets them.

from Seven in my mind:
"What's in the box? What's in the box!"
Once again, I was surprised how big the box was when it came. I think it was bigger than last time, although not quite as heavy. It didn't have as many items as last time either, although a couple were definitely bigger ticket items. Here is what I got for $30 + $6 shipping (in the order that they came out of the box). You should be able to click to embiggen all photos.

that costs extra.
|A little creepy and smelly...win/win!|
yep, that's what it does.
|Yes, a nuclear blast just went|
off outside my window.
|Have some pride in yourself.|
|a secret weakness|
|pretty happy with this|
Adding it all up (at original MSRP or the best price that I can find) that makes this box worth about $240...that makes it 87.5% off retail. Not too bad. I got some things that I like and some gifts for others. I felt like I got a pretty good deal.
Win! Win! Win!
|Ah...it's a profit deal. Takes the pressure off!|
