The Bookish Box Subscription Box Review – June 2015
The Bookish Box is a newish book-inspired subscription box from Appraising Pages.
Each month they send you an exclusive tee from Appraising Pages, and some other bookish goodies.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
I took a few more unboxing pictures than usual since this is my first box – I love the tissue paper!
The Subscription Box: The Bookish Box by Appraising Pages
The Cost: $29.99 plus shipping (Shipping to PA was $4.50)
The Products: Every month you’ll receive a shirt by Appraising Pages Shop and 3-5 feminine home, beauty, and fashion items.
Ships to: US and Worldwide!
Each box comes with a card detailing the brands and items included.
Twilight Tee – Value $27.50
Each month will include an exclusive tee design from Appraising Pages just for The Bookish Box subscribers. I like the fit and fabric weight of this tee (100% preshrunk cotton). I went with the women’s fitted tee sizing, but they also have unisex tee sizing.
(And am I the only person who hasn’t read the Twilight series yet?)
Smashtat Temporary Tattoos – Value $5
Ursula Uriarte Alice in Wonderland Postcard – Value $1?
SmashTat tattoos seem to be popular in book subscription boxes lately! The Giving Tree is one of my favorite childhood books, so I was happy to see it represented in this box!
Frostbeard Old Books Candle – (2 oz) Value $5?
Living Books Nook Trelawney’s Terrible Tea Leaves – Value $2?
(Frostbeard doesn’t sell their two-ounce candles individually, so I’m estimating the product price). This is my second Old Books candle thanks to Lit Cube!
I’m also guessing on the value of the tea – there isn’t a shop for Living Books Nook online.
Verdict: Based on my estimates, this box has a retail value $40.50. The Bookish Box website says that each box will have a retail value of $50 or more though. I could be a little low on the estimate, but this still doesn’t look like $50 worth of items to me. Value concerns aside, I really like the idea of this box, and I think the exclusive t-shirt is a great feature.
