Aha, you're into the serious stuff. I get you. With this option you will get everything you would see in an Original Sustainable Book Box, (a delightful box of sustainable & ethical treats) but with a guaranteed beautiful vintage book. This could be any genre, from any time period, but is guaranteed to be pre-1960. You'll also get an extra snack and drink.
Each box will contain the following:
- A pre-loved vintage* book, beautifully wrapped
- A hand-made bookmark, with ribbon made from 100% recycled plastic bottles (can be personalised for an extra 50p! Click here!)
- Something to sip (tea, coffee, chocolate, infusions, that sort of thing)
- Something to nibble (a sweet option and a savoury option)
- Something to admire (postcards, charming knickknacks)
- 10% of profits donated to charity
*in theory, anything pre-1990 is considered technically "vintage", but for this box it will be guaranteed 1960s or earlier.
NB. The books and contents shown are indicative only and may not come with your actual box. But they'll be very similar!
The Vintage Box
There's a box underneath your genre selection for you to tell us anything you think we might need to know. Allergies? Pop them in here. Do you love cats so much that if there's a cat book you'd really, really like it?* OK, good to know. Do you only have blue things in your home? Righto.
Also, please do tell us if you have any particular triggers, or would prefer not to receive anything connected to alcohol, cigarettes or drugs. Our books range through the decades, and it's possible that not all of them will be 100%... shall we say... "enlightened" in every way. They may contain all sorts of things, and we absolutely don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable. Whatever your thing is, tell us. We won't judge, and we'll do our best to avoid it for you.
*There are almost certainly no cat books immediately available, but we'll always do our best to accommodate any special requests.
