The ‘Bedside’ box was one that was really interesting in the October selections. You actually were able to choose from 3 books (that might have been a first for Bespoke Post).
Each month comes with an information card, giving you backstory and details about the makers and items in your box.
They always have some type of how-to or informational bit on the reverse side as well. This month gives ideas on how to become a morning person.
(del)Hutson Designs storage tray – Value $35-40? (based on similar trays)
The main item of the box is a reclaimed cedar tray. The tray measures 12 1/2″ x 13 1/2″ and is stained with a dark maple.
I think this will best find its use as a serving tray for bar items in our house. It’s hand made – and the sides are a bit unstable on mine (the nail is a bit loose, so there’s wobble) – but that’s easily fixed.
Newgate Clocks – The Small London Alarm Clock – Value $18
This little alarm clock that’s made in the UK is the perfect size for your bedside.
It has all the basics of an alarm clock and requires a double-A battery to get going. I really like the look and design of this clock.
Catch-22 – Value $10 on Amazon
The book we chose was the classic Catch-22. It’s the 50th Anniversary edition, so it includes some bonus content.
This fiftieth-anniversary edition commemorates Joseph Heller’s masterpiece with a new introduction; critical essays and reviews by Norman Mailer, Alfred Kazin, Anthony Burgess, and others; rare papers and photos; and much more.
Book Darts – Value $2-3 based on bulk Amazon price
The final item goes with your book.
These little metal book darts are great for a bookmark but are meant to mark lines or paragraphs to come back to.
There are 15 in this little set and they sell in bulk if it turns out that you love them!
Verdict: This was the first Bespoke Post that I liked, but wasn’t totally over-the-moon for. With most of the value in the tray, you’ll have to really love that handmade/reclaimed feel to love this box. Overall, it was good but not great for me.
