We have the fantastic opportunity to do two new things this week: release our first ever video and do our first ever literary crate unboxing! Let’s just say that one of those things was far more enjoyable than the other…
The name of this literary crate is The Attic Box and it was super-duper fun to get and open, even though on the video Bubby and I come across more like stiff corpses than people having super-duper fun.
Yes, we’re definitely better in person. No worries, the videos are sure to improve, right? Right?
You can always improve from super lame and unfunny. So yeah. We’re bound to improve. Regardless, we were giddy (inside) about opening up a box full of surprises, including lovely books, bookmark, and bubble bath (see why we liked it?). Bubby, why didn’t you show your giddiness more? Were you on drugs?
Nope. Just camera-shy. I loved that the Attic Box included so many little treasures, from a necklace to yummy herbal tea, even a silver spoon. The question now is how we’re going to divvy it all up so that it’s fair, because I want it all. I guess Sissy can have the bookmark. But the rest is MINE!
You can say that but you don’t realize that the box has been at my house the whole time and I’ve emptied it and hidden all the stuff away in secret hidden places. Good luck with the whole “being fair” thing. The happy news for our readers is that you all (you readers, that is) can use the discount code BBB10 to get 10% off of your own fantastic box of booki-ness from Blue Spider’s Attic. (This code will save you 10% on your first box when applied at checkout. Must redeem coupon at bluespidersattic.com at time of purchase. It cannot be added after the fact.)
I suppose we can’t put it off any longer. Do you readers want to watch the video and mock us for our lack of vivaciousness? Just remember, you like us and will not judge us!
What is The Attic Box?
• The Attic Box provides a mixture of secondhand vintage and more contemporary paperback novels, paired with full-pot samples of coffee (or opt for hot tea) and bookish treasures (often handmade). The experience is unique, individualized, and is designed to deliver an essence of nostalgia–the feeling of unearthing an old box in your grandmother’s attic… the elation and wonder of discovering new authors and hidden treasures.
• The Attic Box makes the perfect gift– either for yourself or a loved one. The variety of second-hand novels delivered could include an old favorite, a title by an author you love, a completely new experience with an author of whom you’ve never heard, or perhaps a title and author that could be shared with a friend or family member. The Attic Box has something for everyone who appreciates vintage stories and nostalgic interludes.
• The Attic Box is not your average book box. We’re offbeat, bent around the edges, eccentric, and kinda random. Secondhand books are a part of who we are. We adore the tattered edges and old book smell. That’s the experience we’re sharing with you– that love for vintage stories that have lurked along the edges of the limelight for years; those stories that the writers of today grew up reading and, in doing so, were inspired to spin their own tales. Sometimes the best stories come from a book that’s lived a thousand lives. An #atticbox is like taking a walk down the road not taken. You don’t know what you’ll find, but it’ll definitely be a fun ride. But, be warned, dear hearts…this little box isn’t for everyone.
