This collection of 17 items and accompanying quotes, centered on the zodiac sign Cancer, is sure to please anyone born between June 21 and July 22 or someone who loves a Cancerian. The items can be used as jewelry, key ring decor, zipper charms for backpacks, bags, and purses, fidget items, decorations, or simply kept in the box with the quote key as fun reminders that Moon Children are among the most mysterious yet lovable people on the planet . The quote key is printed on fine card stock and fits neatly inside the tin with the items.
Each item was carefully chosen to represent some aspect of the Cancer personality. The accompanying quotes are either by, for, or about Cancerians. We have other boxes for other signs, and each is quite unique from all the others. Here are a few examples for Cancer:
* Treasure Chest. "Whether it's an old plastic bottle, an old lover, an old house, an old belief, and old bit of string, an old memory--hang on to it, says Cancer. You never know when you might need it again." ~Liz Greene
Moon. "You cannot look up at the night sky on the Planet Earth and not wonder what it's like to be up there amongst the stars. And I always look up at the moon and see it as the single most romantic place within the cosmos." ~Tom Hanks
* Camper. "it's no surprise Cancers are very attached to their homes. Like hermit crabs, they cannot survive without a home to call their own. It keeps them grounded and makes them feel safe and secure." ~Jacqueline Dautaj
* Heart. "I don't go by the rule book...I lead from the heart, not the head." ~Diana, Princess of Wales (a Cancerian)
The items are housed in a customized upcycled Altoid tin, measuring 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 1. You can select a design from any of the samples shown in the item photos, or describe something completely unique. With Cancer being a water sign, we can choose colors in cool tones, add an anchor or a compass to the lid, etc.
Each kit comes with a high quality waxed cotton necklace cord in a color of your choosing (unisex and adjustable).

We happily combine shipping, so check out our section "Themed Kuriosity Kits" for other great personalized gifts!
For most items, I use USPS priority flat-rate shipping which ranges from $7.15 up to $13.50, depending on the size of the item. The exception is handmade jewelry items, which ship for $3 using USPS.
I do combine shipping, so I can can typically ship up to three items in a single box/package for one price.
Most items ship within three to five business days, and therefore most items will arrive within a week to ten days after order placement. If you need an item sooner, such a a bereavement gift, please let me know and I'll work with you!
By request, I am happy to do overnight shipping, with the buyer paying shipping fees above and beyond the regular shipping costs per item. Most of my listings have a "shipping upgrade" option at checkout; if you don't find this, just let me know through Etsy conversation.
I always provide the tracking number regardless of shipping method. If for whatever reason it costs more to send than anticipated, I will cover the difference.
