WHAT WAS THE ORIGINAL GOODIE BOX
Elbert Hubbard’s early attempts to develop personal connections with and entice customers began while he was a salesperson for the Larkin Company. The “Goodie Box” was a comparable promotional sales strategy to the Larkin Company’s “$10 Combination Box” and was offered as a premium to customers. Even the slogan used to advertise it, “From Farm to Family”, echoes the Larkin Company’s “Factory to Family” motto. The Roycrofters’ “Goodie Box”, a wooden trunk filled with sausage, nuts, honey, home-made pecan patties and other wholesome foodstuffs from the Roycroft farms, was originally made of gumwood and copper and measured 9 ½ x 23 x 12 ½ inches. The Roycroft Orb was carved on the top and for an extra fee a persons name would be added and sent as a gift to the person.
