It was great! But it seemed like a lot of paper and not as much book curated stuff.
We are glad you thought it was great! The box included 8 items, the 2 paper items you are referring to were a bookmark from author and a harry potter art print from an artist. These are typical of most book boxes to include. The other items included a soy candle, tea, keychain, a tote bag, a fabric facemask, and a hardcover novel with a signed bookplate and letter from the author. We hope you enjoy your next box as well.
I decided to try this box out because of the fandoms highlighted in the March box. I am a regular Owlcrate subscriber so that did effect my reaction and thoughts! In this box there was a packet of hot chocolate, cheap wax melts, 2 paper bookmarks, thin socks, magnet, art print, and the book. I dont believe this was worth the money I paid for it. I do believe the magnet was decent quality and I will read the book.
Thank you for giving our box subscription a try. The brand you mention sends many thousands of boxes while we are a mom and pop shop book box and do not have access to the bulk discounts of larger companies. While every box might not be everyone's cup of tea we do appreciate you trying us out and want to assure you the retail value was there. Cost of the box to customers is $29.99 or less if you have a longer subscription. We included these retail items:
Licensed Disney Frozen socks $5
2 different bookmarks from wonderful artists who run their own bookish businesses $9
4x4 inch large hard magnet $5
Artprint from another great bookish artist $5
Soy wax melts set from another small business...
I got it 3 weeks late so they can make it more political. I deal with whatever is happened out there 24/7 i was looking forward to this not having anything to do with anything going on in our world. Yeah black lives matter but this was unnecessary. Or if they wanted to do it they could have made it a July box instead of making it 3 weeks late
Hello, the box had an announced two week shipping delay due to items stuck in customs related to covid in June. We only ended up being 12 days delayed. So I am unsure where you got 3 weeks from. This delay was posted about on our website as well as sent out in multiple emails to our subscribers. We did not hold up the box to make it political, the item you are referring to was an enamel pin from Children of Blood and Bone and was loved by subscribers. We featured that book previously in our boxes. I am not sure why you assume this item was political. This was not even the item that caused the shipping delay. Since you ordered 4...
