I always look forward to receiving my Attic Box. Each month, the box is thoughtful and goes along with the theme. The state of the books is also a huge amount better than I was expecting them to be. There are some books that I've received that I couldn't even tell were used because they were in such good condition. In addition, Candice and Jeremy are very nice and helpful. Candice got back to me really quickly and solved a purchasing issue I had. I definitely would recommend this box; the box itself and the people in charge of it are great!
I really dis love everything about this. If I had to pick a favorite thing though, it would be that the books are wrapped in really pretty newspaper type bags (not sure how to describe it) you're already surprised when the box arrives because you have no clue whats in there, and then your books are wrapped too! Double surprise!
I've received a couple of boxes now. I adore it! It's like having a used book store deliver awesome books with fabulous goodies! What's better then tea or coffee and a great read? Blue Spider does a wonderful job of selecting books based on the genres you select. I recommend this box to all my reader friends.
I've been a subscriber for a few months and am so pleased with everything. Good books and good coffee presented in a neatly packaged box that is a joy to open every month. Exceptional response if you have a question. Information on ordering the coffe is included if you want more. Will continue my subscription and enjoy great books and coffee!
I got my first box from them a couple days ago and it literally had me
squealing like a child on Christmas morning!! All of the books were right up my alley and the additional items were so adorable! So excited to see what else comes my way :)
This box was out of this world. Three books and a handful of goodies to go with it. ~10 items all told. Could not ask for a better curation or a better value. Love it!
The Attic Box is one of my favorite subscription boxes! It's a great value. Each month, I receive three gently used books of my favorite genre, coffee or tea and wonderful book-themed treats. There's a new theme each month and the boxes are thoughtfully put-together. It's a present to myself every month. Thank you Attic Box!
I just love Blue Spider's Attic Box! Each month they send 3 gently used books along with amazing coffee and tea, and other bookish items. There can be bookmarks, magnets, stickers, etc. one month I got a print of an Alice and Wonderland print, complete with mat. I don't want to tell you much more about what's inside, I don't want to ruin the surprise. If you love to read, and love surprises, Attic Box is for you. Blue Spider's Attic Box is pure bibliophilic gold!
My first Attic Box was awesome. The theme for March was pirates, which who doesn't love a pirate theme? The items were chosen with care and love and digging into the box was super fun. I love used books of many different genres. Not knowing which books you're going to get or what genre just adds to the fun. Three books that I've never read but they all seem interesting. Can't wait for the next box. Thank you Blue Spider!
I had been away from books for some time before signing up for this box. But now thanks to this subscription I'm back to one of my favorites activities: reading!
The box I subscribe comes with three books and a couple of bookish items. I loved my first box, which was a February box and was Valentine's themed.
My second box came with fancy tea! The container arrived open but I just sent a message on facebook and the next week a new sample of tea arrived. So if you have any problems, they will make it right.
Upshot: Go ahead and subscribe to this box! You won't regret it.
And if you think three books might be too much, it's ok. You can always skip the following month.
I received my first Basic box today with two books, coffee and tea. I was very pleased with the books selected for me, and they followed the interest survey that I had completed. I had been counting the days for my "surprise" and it was such fun opening my package. I'll see how it goes, and may upgrade to the larger package soon.
This is my first of the three month subscription I signed up for. I opted for the basic package, which comes with two books, and both a coffee and tea sample. The package arrived rather quickly after it was shipped, and the tracking information was provided in a timely manner. I'm enjoying both the coffee and the tea. My only beef is with one of the books I received, which is the second book in a series I have never read. So, to enjoy it, I have to find and read the first book in the series. Otherwise, I think this is pretty awesome!
This box was such a fantastic way to start trying subscription services. I'm typically rather picky about what books I read, so initially I was hesitant to let someone else do it for me. However, every single book I've gotten from them is spot on. The questionnaire that subscribers fill out before ordering probably helped, but I'm still amazed that they figured out my preferences so thouroughly. I also really appreciated the coffee and extra bookish bits that also arrived in the box. Thanks!
I just received my EIGHTH Attic box, and I can honestly say I love this subscription more each month. I've tried several other book boxes, but always found a reason to stop...usually because I wasn't reading the books I received for one reason or another. Not so with these Attic boxes! The books are used, always in stellar condition, smell great, and are things I'm eager to read, every time.
And although the books themselves are definitely the highlight of the box, the extra goodies included add a sweetness to the experience that I really enjoy but find hard to explain. They're...happy. The coffee, the bookmarks, the trinkets and magnets and hand-beaded book spiders...they have a kind of whimsy to them. I absolutely love this subscription and can't recommend it highly enough.
Also I think the proprietors might be psychic because their book picks are crazy accurate for my taste.
The box was lovely. I have a slight subscription addiction, so I'm constantly trying out new ones. For the price, this subscription is worth it. Unfortunately, this isn't one of my regular subscriptions. Although it was lovely, it just didn't cut it out for me.
Received my first box last week & I fell in love!! 3 used books, goodies, AND coffee(which I'm currently brewing).. The books look very fun & interesting so I can't wait to read them.. Can't wait for the next box!!
I was blown away with this box. I absolutely loved everything. The books that I received were all from way different genres and I am excited to read them all.
I loved the box. There was enough stuff to give each kid something too. I loved opening each book. Very exciting box.
I received the Holiday Box and my first Box this month. This subscription box is amazing. Really, I was shocked on how well I loved everything. The box arrived as scheduled and you can tell the time put into it. They do a great job. I loved the old books, the handmade bookmarks, the coffee, the prints and the necklace. Everything was perfect.
I got the February Heart of Winter box. I was really excited about getting three books, all personally selected for me. The price is definitely right for the amount included. The magnetic bookmarks and heart shaped paperclips were adorable and of very good quality. The coaster and the little candies seemed like cheap additions, but that's not a big deal. Everything was wrapped very nicely and the packaging was cute. And great coffee!! I was however a little disappointed by the book selections... they aren't bad books, but they are not what I was hoping for. Not sure if this was my mistake filling out the survey or if the curators just made mediocre choices, but I wasn't impressed. Only 1 out of the 3 books felt like the genre I asked for... the other two were kindof random in my opinion. Not sure if I will give it another try or not.
This box contains all of the items promised but, looks nothing like the pictures on here or their website. Also, the books were not in my interests whatsoever.
Awasome products and books too.
This box truly is 'all of the magic of a used book store, delivered'! It has such an intimate, 'small-business' feel, just like my favorite used book store.
It's clear a lot of heart goes into putting everything together--from the book-ish goodies (often handmade) to the personalized book selections (THREE of them!) based on your own favorite genres. Even better, the books are in individually wrapped, prolonging the excitement and anticipation!
I've already recommended Blue Spider's Attic Box to all my friends, and have no doubt you will love it too!
I just received this subscription the first week of September and I really love it. I was introduced to a writer I had not heard of before and I loved her book. The other choice was better than the movie, aren't they always? And the third was snagged by my husband. He loves a good spy novel. The Banana Fosters coffee was sublime and I loved the metal bookmark-my first! and the stickers/magnets/pins. I am literally counting the days until the October shipment. Thanks BSA.
I've received two boxes, and I am just so pleased! Such a fun gift for myself!
