Q: Since I cannot sign up for 3 months and want a subscription by the month, do you automatically take a payment from my card and send it each month?Asked by Kathryn L., February 2022
Thanks for your question! Yes, we do offer monthly subscriptions. A monthly subscription will automatically renew each month until you cancel. We also offer 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month prepaid subscriptions. These automatically renew unless you cancel. Boxes ship out between the 1st and 4th of each month, regardless of the subscription type.
Q: When does this subscription renew? (I am trying to plan and just want to know when to expect the auto-renewal.) Thanks!Asked by Genevieve S., April 2021
Thanks for subscribing! Your first box will ship out to you between May 1-4 and your first renewal payment will be on May 11. After that, your subscription will renew on the 11th of each month for as long as it is active.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Q: Approximately how many pieces does a subscription box contain? Thank youAsked by Kim L., December 2020
Hi Kim, thanks for your interest in our Junk Journaler's Delight box! You can expect a wide variety of unique vintage ephemera and trim in each box.
You can expect to receive between 40-60 individual pieces, whereas "piece" is defined as a single item such as a button, a book page, a package or 18" length of ribbon/lace/rickrack, a fussy cut, a stamp, a postcard, a magazine ad, a recipe, etc. Some pieces are grouped together in handmade containers you can use as well (for example, 10 buttons in a handmade origami box or postcards in handmade envelopes).
Natasa from Treasure Books recorded an unboxing video of our box that will give you a nice peek at the types and quantity of items you'll receive...
Q: What name will appear on my credit card statement?Asked by Vickie V., November 2020
The name that will appear on your credit card when you subscribe to a Cheery Bird Vintage box is CHEERY BIRD VINTAGE.
It was okay, just so much the same as the previous month I had a true deja vu moment.
As I've wondered where you have found things and cut things out and then created some thing to hold little things and then packed everything I'm aware of how much time it takes, but yet, if every month is basically the same, it causes me to wonder if I want to continue. Then I think, well do I have the time to gather this each month?
I just got my first box from Cheery Bird and I LOVE IT!! There are so many AMAZING true vintage odds and ends. I also have to mention!!! You did a road trip box for me (adore!) and I am from Pennsylvania (loved that you added that personal touch ♥) but I was SO happy to see book reference cards that coincidentally had info about Saudi Arabia ( My newlywed husband is from there!) I will be sticking with this subscription and recommend it to anyone and everyone who loves vintage ephemera! THANK YOU!!
We're so excited to hear that you loved your first box, Amy! We truly do have the best time curating each box. Happy crafting!

I love art journaling and have been looking for some new material. This box is FANTASTIC! It was clear that a lot of thought was put into it. The materials will be fun to work with, and it will last quite awhile. Thanks for this blast from the past!!
Thanks so much for your review, Amy! We're so glad to hear you're loving your subscription. Curating these boxes each month brings us so much joy, and we're always excited by the thought of these lovely old materials being turned into creative pieces by talented artists like you.
Larissa and Vickie
Overall, I was disappointed with the contents of each box in my 3 month subscription. It seemed as though most of what was shipped to me was someone else's leftover bits of things that they did not want to use in their craft projects. I will not be subscribing to this box again.
We're sorry to hear you weren't happy with your subscription. We take great care to hand-curate an assortment of vintage paper and trim items in each box each month. We also take time to create and include handmade items to inspire our fellow junk journalers and artists and provide finished items for their projects. Again, we're sorry our subscription did not meet your expectations but appreciate your feedback, as we are always striving to improve our product.
I was blown away by all the things inside. It felt like a time capsule. So interesting and I love journalism. Can't wait for the next box. Great gift
Hi Maria, we're so glad you loved your first box! We have tons of fun curating these boxes for exactly the reason you mentioned...it's like going back in time. Have fun creating with your vintage ephemera.
Cheers, Larissa and Vickie
I received a vintage box from Cherry Bird for Christmas! It was wonderful! They picked really cool items and displayed them so neat. The handmade item is gorgeous. I think there was more than one. Buttons were in a bag made from paper, small items in an envelope made from paper and stamps were also in an envelope made from paper.
HI Tonya! We're so pleased to hear you loved your gift. Hopefully the items in your box will inspire you to create some beautiful artwork. :)

This is by far the best paper/journaling box I have ever received. It is filled with lovely vintage papers, photos, postcards, map and music paper, pages from vintage books, vintage sewing supplies, and all sorts of lovely, classy pieces. Way to go, ladies! I loved this box. It is packaged beautifully!
Thank you for your truly wonderful review, Renee (and for including photos)! We're so happy you enjoyed your box...we're imagining all of the wonderful things you'll create! Cheers, Larissa & Vickie
Love this box! The handmade origami paperclip dress is amazing and I can’t wait to journal with everything! Thank you so much!!
Thanks for taking the time to review our box, Genevieve! We're glad you enjoyed it and are excited to know you'll be making good use of everything in your journals.
Cheers, Larissa & Vickie
I loved this box of treasures but I expected more to be included. I am not sure I can justify the cost for what I got.
Thank you for taking the time to review our box and for your insightful feedback, as it helps us ensure that our subscribers receive a wide variety of vintage ephemera in each box at a great value. We'll continue to evaluate future boxes, and thanks again!
I would have liked to see more variety. Each box contained an overwhelmingly amount of book pages. I can see how this would be super helpful if you are just starting out though.
Thank you, Janet, for taking the time to review our box and for providing your honest feedback. We are always looking to create the best experience for our subscribers so we greatly appreciate your input.
