Once Upon a Book Club
Bookish Crafting Collection
Even the most avid reader needs a break every now and again, and our bookish crafting collection will have you creating a masterpiece before you know it.
What is Halloween without that artfully cut-out pumpkin? Our pumpkin carving set is the only tool you need to turn that ordinary pumpkin into one that will have you the envy of the neighborhood! And with its durable case and orange detailing reading “Embrace Your Inner Witch,” need we say more?
You may be surprised to know that pumpkins weren’t always the vegetable of choice when it came to carving out scary faces. The story starts long ago in Ireland, and as the myth goes, Stingy Jack tricked the devil, and when he died, he wasn’t allowed into heaven, and the devil wouldn’t have him either. And so he was sentenced to roam the earth for eternity. So the Irish started carving scary faces out of turnips to frighten him away, but when they immigrated to the US, they began using pumpkins!
At Once Upon a Book Club, we aren’t just about reading; we are also about getting creative and having fun. Let your imagination run wild; perhaps it is time to carve your very own spooky creation.
We can’t wait to add to our bookish collection, so keep an eye out for our next arrival.
Had a twist I couldn't even guess
This incense smells wonderful. The small brass holder has a minimalist design, is made well, and matches most decor easily.
I have used these for several different recipes and nothing sticks to them. They hand wash easily. I find myself reaching for these more than expected. If you bake, they are a must have for your kitchen.
The book was fantastic, and the Ghibli inspirations were as clear as day. I read it all in one go within about three hours. The gifts were great too. Perfect for the part of the story they were from, bringing just a small part of it to life. If you like stories about other worlds and family and strength, then this box is for you!
A very nice book bag...I love it! Actually, I disagree with a previous review and in my obstinate opinion believe the quality of this book bag is very suitable for my needs! ...and the surprise of another book inside the bag totally makes this a superb gift!
The gifts are all whimsically great, some of my favorites I’ve gotten from OUABC and the book is delightfully fun! Beautiful edition!
This was only my second box, and I kept seeing it as an ad and thought I should really dive into it. This was such a fun box! The first gift came super early, and I felt that all of them were on-point and perfect both for the book and book lovers.
This water bottle is super cute. I use it year round, my drink is kept cold and there is no leakage. The design holds up well under washing
This leather bookmark is well made. The leather has a sturdy thickness to it and the embossed quote is a nice touch.
This tape dispenser is well made. It is also colorful. However, the transparent acrylic design keeps it from being over powerful on a desktop.
This is a beautifully illustrated calendar. It also has ample space each day to write down birthdays, appointments, etc…
These are cute little paper lips that I like to use as bookmarks. I like that the gold and rose gold tones have held up well (no discoloration over time).
These lavender sachets are pleasant smelling and well made. The fabric weave is thick enough to keep bits of lavender from escaping into your drawer, closet, etc…
This is a nice mug. It is a generous size. The glazing is durable and even. It holds up well in the dishwasher.
This is a useful set for wine drinkers. All of the pieces work and hold up well over time.
