If you aren’t familiar with magnetic bookmarks, they have thin magnets on each side of the bookmark to keep it in place.

And we have a non-bookmark item this month:

Tea-Rex Magnet

I only need so many bookmarks a month, so I appreciate this little dino magent inclusion!

 

 

 

Verdict: This subscription falls into the delightful category for me. It might not be a good fit for everyone, but I’m always happy to see these cute bookmarks in any of my book subscriptions, so a subscription full of them is just extra awesome.

Crafted Van bookmarks retail for around $4.50, so the value of this subscription is around $18. It cost me about $10.50 shipped, so I see the value there, too. (Plus these designs may be exclusive – I can’t find them in their etsy shop!)
