As with most Bespoke Post boxes, Perch comes with an info card detailing both items in the box. The Perch box features two items that would be great for tailgating, car camping, or even just around the house – a wood and leather stool and a citronella candle.

Badlands Leather Camp Stool from C.C. Supply – Retail Value $50?

The main item in Perch is this beautifully crafted stool from C.C. Supply. I wasn’t able to find this particular stool online anywhere so the value is a best guess based on similar stools out there. This stool comes in two pieces – the legs do not permanently attach to the seat making it easy to pack up and toss in the back seat. The leather on my seat was well worn and slightly dirty, but that gave it a little character. It’s very tough, thick and well-stitched. This could be a cool piece of functional decor in your home too, if (like me) you didn’t end up going camping or tailgating as often as you had hoped this fall. This easily supported my weight and didn’t feel in danger of collapsing. One complaint I had was that the bolts are fairly loose, so there’s definite risk of pinching your fingers between the legs when you’re trying to put the seat together. I tightened them up a little but they do need to have some looseness to function properly.

Citronella Soy Camp Candle – Retail Value $10?

The second item this month is this 8oz citronella camp candle. I’m guessing at the value on this one too as I believe this may have been made just for Bespoke Post. This soy-based wax candle can be burned indoors if you are feeling the heavy citronella scent.  I’m not a huge fan of citronella so this was a bit of a miss for me personally as a home item, but I’ll definitely get use out of it next summer on the porch!

Verdict: I think this is a pretty cool little collection from Bespoke Post. The stool is a versatile piece that can be used in a variety of ways, and the candle will come in handy to keep pests away in the warmer months. Based on my guesses, you’re getting around $60 worth of products for the $45 price tag, so the value is there for me. Check out the latest selections for November if you’re thinking of subscribing – several are available!

  1. Andy, several forum members ordered this box last month and received a stool that both smelled horribly and appeared to be moldy. I see that the stool in your photographs has spots of a white substance on the seats. Could you please comment on the state of your stool when you received it and your impression of those white spots?

    Thank you!

    • Oops, apologies for the typo. Obviously there’s only one seat. 🙂

    • Hi Jennifer! I did mention in the review that the leather was a little dirty, but it struck me as something that was done or left there purposely to give the item character. There is definitely a scent to the leather, but it wasn’t overwhelming or necessarily unpleasant to me. It’s been sitting out since I received it and the scent is there if I put my nose up to it but it has mostly dissipated. I plan on putting some leather treatment oil on it in the future which should simultaneously clean it, soften the leather and make it smell nice. Sorry to hear yours may have been in a rougher state 🙁

      • Andy, thank you for answering! I did see the “slightly dirty” description in your review and appreciate you indulging me with an expanded description.

        In the interest of fairness, I should mention that all of the folks who have commented about this on the forum and subsequently contacted Bespoke Post received excellent customer service with new boxes shipped out straight away.

        • My stool is covered in mildew. Did you contact customer support? What did they say to do?

        • Interesting! Do you know if anyone received newer/cleaner seat pieces?

  2. We ordered that one, too, except for a foot stool or extra seat whenever company stopped by and we needed something extra. Unfortunately, the bolts proved to be a problem for us and we need to return ours. It’s the first return I’ll be making to this wonderful company. They have the best quality and selection for any interest that one will dream of or think of–I love BP.
