Enjoyable & Unique

Sussex Downs Books on Sep 2021

I got the monthly vintage subscription and I have been pretty happy with this subscription. The books are good quality. They are genuinely old (1895, 1903, etc). They are pretty, colorful, have interesting cover designs, etc. but they are not titles that you would recognize. Yes, they do have the old book smell. (If you don’t like that, put a dryer sheet in your book when you get it.) Some of the extra ephemera they include is fantastic, some of it is ho-hum. Each box is going to be unique because these are ‘found’ objects, so you’re not going to get the same things I did. (Also means you could order 2 subscriptions and get 2 different boxes each month.) Not the seller’s fault that shipping to the US is expensive… but the US buyer does have to pay for the international shipping and that definitely showed me down.
