Murphy's Bulk Books on Jun 2021

We've been really happy with receiving our Murphy's Bulk Books subscription. It is so fun to get a random assortment of books every month! We are signed up for the board books and have a young child (<1). *Note: make sure you read the description when you sign up as it provides guidance on what type of book to request based on the age of the child, etc.* We have received a mix of used books including classics (i.e., Eric Carle) to contemporary (i.e., Frozen-themed books). We've also received a number of education books (i.e., learning words, telling time, different modes of transportation). We've also received some holiday books corresponding to the relevant upcoming holiday.
In the past 6-months of our subscription, we've only received 1 repeat, which I think is pretty exceptional. While some books are for a toddler or older infant, we don't mind at all because we know they will grow into them. The seller provided information on how to get in touch with them and how special requests can be made. We haven't taken advantage of this yet, but I think we'll make a special request for our child's upcoming birthday. While the books are used, the majority we've received have been in excellent quality, and when we have seen one that is a bit more "loved", it's usually a rarer book or a book that would have retailed for a much higher price. We value sustainability in our home and it's nice to know these...

Delicious and fun

The Appalachian Mercantile on Jun 2021

We have really enjoyed receiving this box every month. The combination of items has been wonderful and comes from various Appalachian communities. There are typically some food items as well as home goods. I really like the treats (i.e., drinking chocolate, candy) and the home good/ craft items (i.e., tea towel, small hanging plant, cutting board, soap, etc.), whereas my husband really loves the food items. The food products typically contribute to a meal or snacks like soup, hot wings, or deviled eggs. We especially like the recipe(s) that are including with the mailing. We've been really pleased with the diversity of items. Plus, who doesn't love getting a surprise box of treats in the mail every month??
