Questions

Q: Do any of the phone/case styles listed also fit the Samsung Galaxy J7 (size & hole-locations for rear-camera, flashlight, microphones, headphone jack, speaker, etc.)?Asked by Lisa E., April 2020

No, the phone case ordered needs to be the exact model of your phone - other phone models will not fit in the case if it is not meant for it (i.e the camera/buttons/headphone jacks/etc will not line up properly.)

They've put together a cute little box, with a bookcase phone case and a bunch of cute ephemera. Overall, it's fun. My first month's box was a children's book-themed one, which the girls really thought was fun. The phone case is quality.
I'm going to stick with this one for a while, but I'm hoping in the coming months to see maybe a more literary classics focus and fewer kids books and classic romance-themed. It would be nice if for every Alice in Wonderland, Madeline, Pride and Prejudice, Gone With the Wind case there was one equivalent straight-ahead classic (e.g. Great Gatsby, Catcher in the Rye, etc.). Right now, the other two categories seem to outnumber the others four to one.

This was the most amazing box EVER! The case is "The Giving Tree." One of my very favorite books of all time. The extras with it we perfect. I cannot wait to see what comes next month!

Products were very child oriented and some of the items seemed cheap.

Hi Rachel! Thanks so much for your feedback. Our included items are meant to be inspired by the story featured on our monthly phone case! The box you received featured How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss which is a children's classic and therefore the gifts were meant to invoke a reminder of childhood Christmas specials. We apologize if this was missed but we hope you enjoyed the phone case despite this!

Suuuuuper cute!

I'm in my 5th month of Once Upon a Bookcase and I couldn't be happier. I love seeing the box in my mailbox each month and can't wait to open it. The phone cases are fun and functional. I enjoy all the extras and I look forward to my box each month.

First I will say this is my first box since signing up. I was hoping for a holiday book themed box, but this is cute. I never watched Gilmore Girls, so I had to look up some of the references.
The phone case: It seems to be well made. It seems to be all leather, with firm stitching, no fraying edges, and a well clasping magnet, that takes a little effort to open, so it won't open on it's own in my purse. The phone sits tight in the holder. I have no fears it's going to fall out.
Coffee sleeve: I don't drink coffee, so I won't use this, but it appears to be sewn together nicely, and seems like it would serve its purpose of not letting your fingers get burned while keeping your coffee warm.
Card: Blank inside card could be cute to send to someone who knows about the show. I don't know anyone who watched the show so the card is irrelevant for me.
Canvas tote bag: Cute bag to carry light items. I will use mine to carry beach shoes and sunscreen. Appears to be well made with a sturdy handle and no fraying edges.
In all for my first box I give it a 5 star. (It's not the company fault I didn't watch the show.) Everything appears well made and full of fun items. Definitely would recommend...

I've been a subscriber since the very beginning and have loved everything about this box. I am so incredibly pleased with the quality of their items and how timely they ship. The value of this box is above what I expected and the phone cases have gotten me more compliments than I ever thought I'd receive. All that and that isn't even the best part. Their customer service is some of the best I've ever experienced. Their timely responses to emails, the fact that they replaced my phone case without me even asking them to for a minor defect, the fact that they go above and beyond for their customers is what makes this one of the absolute most phenomenal boxes I subscribe to and will continue to be subscribed to as long as I'm able to. Thank you for creating such an incredible monthly experience!!
