Victorian Classics! Spearcraft box review – July 2017

In my quest to find my favorite book subscription boxes, I tried a couple more in July, including the SpearCraft box.

Each month’s box fits a particular theme. This month’s theme was “Victorian Classics.”

(There are no listed price values for each item, so I had to do some searching and guessing.)

Bronze key key chain (yes, two “keys” are needed right there) with little quote – Value $3?

Jane Austen playing cards – Value $5?

I can tell the quality on these isn’t super high, but still cute.

Picture of Dorian Gray match box – Value $3 from HereForevermore on Etsy (Exact item here)

On their description, it says “Light your bookish candles in style.” I love that.

Jane Austen homemade soap by @omasfavorite – Value $6? (I can’t find the exact price on one bar of soap.)

This is my favorite item in the entire box! It made the box smell heavenly and I can’t wait to use it. I really love this!

Two packets of Twinnings tea – Value $1?

If every book subscription box I receive in the future has tea in it, I will be very happy.

 

The Verdict: This was such a “Rachel” box. I was ecstatic about so many of the items. The tea, the soap, and all the little useful extras. I loved it all.

I was also really happy with the book choice. I feel like sometimes book subscription boxes throw in whatever book they’re able to get cheaply in bulk. This book, however, is very popular right now and I’ve heard a lot about it. So I was so pleasantly surprised to see it in the box. Also, I love when boxes include a lot of homemade items made by small-business owners. This one was full of them. This is definitely a subscription I will be keeping.

By my rough estimation, the box’s contents are valued at $45.29. Not bad at all.

 

Note: This box was paid for by me. Nothing free, unfortunately. So my opinions are definitely my own.
