Sunday Shopping – Fandom Of The Month

sundayshopping

Today I bring you a Fandom of the Month unboxing! After filming this I noticed that the cards  that come in these boxes don’t actually list any of the items within or who made them so I am unable to do my normal break down for these boxes but I will do the best I can.

For any Australians reading/watching is cost me about $34 to buy the box and have it shipped here from the US. Out of the four things in this box I will wear three of them and love them to bits. The watch also seems like its pretty good quality and would be worth a bit so I was really happy with this box. However the downfall to this series is that they don’t tell you what the theme of each box is and if its not something you like that is a lot of money to waste.

Sunday Shopping – December Nerdybookworm & Owlcrate

sundayshopping

Mystery Figure from Funko!:

Cost – US – 11.5, AUD – 15

Shipping – I have the option to buy these instore here so I have decided to leave shipping prices off this one.

Thoughts – The one i ended up with is pretty damn cute.

Would I Buy It – Yes, but only if I had an $15 to blow because they are rather pricey for what they are and I might not get one I actually want.

Lord of the Rings Pin from Ideal Bookshelf:

Cost – US – 11, AUD – 14.35

Shipping – US – 10.95, AUD – 14.29

Thoughts – I think its something I would never have thought to get but its super cute.

Would I Buy It – If I were to get into pins, I know I would go at them hard but as of right now I don’t think I would buy it because they are not something I am really interested in.

Game of Thrones Coasters from Dark Horse Comics:

Cost – US – 9.99, AUD – 13.03

Shipping – Dark horse don’t seem to ship these kind of things to Australia so unless I found them in another shop I cannot find the price of shipping.

Thoughts – I don’t really have any furniture nice enough for me to ever feel the need to use coasters but I spose one day I might?

Would I Buy It – Nope.

Greeting card from Susanne Draws:

Cost – The shop was closed when I looked to get prices (it opens tomorrow of course) so if I remember I shall update it.

Thoughts – Cute but not something I would buy. I might buy something else from the artist, but not a card.

Would I Buy It – Not a card.

Darker Shade of Magic Sticker from Miss Phi:

Thoughts – So i couldn’t seem to find the sticker option on the page, so I don’t know if the sticker was a one off or if you can normally get them.

Would I Buy It – Perhaps not a sticker but I like the looks of the store so I might buy something else from there.

What I Paid For The Box: US – 49.98, AUD – 60.87

Box Worth: US – 61.17+, AUD – 79.69+ 

Final Thoughts: Not the best but I am getting another.

Not the best one I have gotten before but I am still happy with the value and the overall experience so I shall continue to buy.

Sunday Shopping – Appraising Pages Nightmare

sundayshopping

So I sort of failed again to get prices for things but you still get a good idea of the value. I loved loved loved this box.

Jack & Sally Mug from Evie Seo:

Cost – US – 15, AUD – 20.54

Shipping – Soooo shipping was free the day I checked. I will update later if I remember.

Thoughts – This is probably one the best things I have ever seen. It makes me wish I drank more hot drinks.

Would I Buy It – Yes, in fact I think I am going to go buy some stuff since there is free shipping at the moment.

Christmas Town Shirt from Appraising Pages:

Cost – US – 20, AUD – 27.38

Shipping – US – 20, AUD – 27.38

Thoughts –This is one of the cutest and comfy things I have ever put on.

Would I Buy It – I would pick it up if it was on sale, as that is a lot of money for a shirt.

Jack Ornament from Appraising Pages:

 

Thoughts – I couldn’t find anything like this on the page so I don’t know the cost. I think it is super cute though and I totally love it.

Would I Buy It – Yes. For many people.

Candle from Cherry Pit Crafts:

 

Thoughts – So there were no candles on the etsy store when I looked so I couldn’t find prices! Seems to be a recurring thing here. I did really like the candle and it smells amazing when lit.

Would I Buy It – Probably not because I could find something that smells that good just in one of my local stores.

Sally Bookmark from Nerdy GRL Designs:

 

Thoughts – So the store is closed for the holidays… WAAAAA don’t you know I need information. It is super super cute though and the other items on the site (that I can see from reviews) look adorable.

Would I Buy It – Yes, and I will go back and buy more form the store one day.

 

What I Paid For The Box: US – 55, AUD – 74.41

Box Worth: US – 55+, AUD – 75.30+ (Exchange rate changed so the price is different)

Final Thoughts: Would Buy Again. Yes. Need More.

Sunday Shopping – Lootwear

sundayshopping\

Since there was only one thing in this ‘box’ this shall be a short and sweet breakdown. I really like the design of the shirt but the fit wasn’t quite right for my body so it will probably only end up being a pajama shirt rather than one I wear out.

What I Paid For The Box: US – 14.99, AUD – 20.25

Final Thoughts: If the theme was right I would buy again

Sunday Shopping – Kal-Elle Unboxing

sundayshopping

Hello my lovely people. I hope you enjoy todays Kal-Elle Unboxing video!

The following is a failure of a complete price breakdown. Because most things have come from Kal-Elle’s own shops I found this meant that I could find nothing on pretty much everything. She has a facebook page where she doesn’t actually post pricing or postage for anything, and she also has an etsy which the name of is never actually mentioned so I couldn’t even find it to get information.

Nightmare Before Christmas Necklace designed by Kal-Elle:

Cost – US – 18, AUD – 24.19

Shipping – US – 2.75, AUD – 3.70

Thoughts – I love the necklace but I would have preferred gold.

Would I Buy It – No but I would love it as a gift.

Jack Skellington Headband by The Purple Chameleon:

Cost – US – 3.85, AU – 5.18

Shipping – Does not ship to AU!

Thoughts –  I don’t normally wear things like this but I think its cute and will probably wear it sometimes.

Would I Buy It – No and I can’t because it doesn’t ship here.

Nightmare Before Christmas Earring Set:

Thoughts – I love them they are small and very cute.

Would I Buy It – Yes

Jack Skellington Keychain:

Thoughts – Really good quality and seems very strong and reliable.

Would I Buy It – In a heart beat, might even have gotten some as presents.

Art Prints:

Thoughts – I think they are both very sunning and are good quality.

Would I Buy It – Yes I would.

Oogie Boogie Bracelet:

Thoughts – While I liked it at first I soon didn’t like it because it was impossible to get it on or off.

Would I Buy It – No.

Lock, Stock, and Barrel with Zero Magnet:

Thoughts – Cute but not something I would normally buy.

Would I Buy It – Nope.

What I Paid For The Box: US – 27.16, AUD – 36.51

Box Worth: US – 24.60+, AUD – 33.07+

Final Thoughts: Would Give It Another Go

I really liked some of the things but not really enough for the box to be really worth it. Then again I liked enough to give the box another go so I signed up for the next one.

OwlCrate Unboxing

sundayshopping

Welcome to a Sunday Shopping! Today I bring you OwlCrate along with an unboxing video :D

The following is a complete breakdown of pricing.

Fabric Button Bookmark from My Heart My Tribe:

Cost – US – 4.99, AUD – 6.80

Shipping – ?

Thoughts – So I couldn’t find anything but an instagram page for this store and the only price I could find was the above. This does not include shipping. If I could find an easier way to purchase these I might consider buying them but not with the current system.

Would I Buy It – Not right now.

Oz Passport Notebook from The Unemployed Philosopher’s Guild:

Cost – US – 10, AUD – 13.63

Shipping – US – 12.25, AUD – 16.70

Thoughts – For this store you can only place orders if they are 10+ and the notebook costs less than that, so the price could very well be more because you have to buy more than one item. I don’t mind some of the other items but not many.

Would I Buy It – I would pick a different design if I wanted something else from the store.

Charm Bracelet from The Geeky Cauldron:

Cost – ?

Shipping – ?

Thoughts – I was unable to check any pricing for this item because the store is currently closed. I do love the bracelet though.

Would I Buy It – Yes, if it was a reasonable price.

Lost Boys Beanie from Whosits and Whatsits:

Cost – US – 22, AUD – 29.99

Shipping – US – 14.55, AUD – 19.83

Thoughts – As I don’t like the beanie and beanies are not something I would buy anyway I think the cost of this item it way too high.

Would I Buy It – No.

Vassa In The Night by Sarah Porter:

Cost – US – 13.39, AUD – 17.92

What I Paid For The Box: US – 49.98, AUD – 65.44

Box Worth: US – 77.18, AUD – 104.87

Final Thoughts: Would Buy Again

So there is some extra value in buying this box as it would have cost me quite a bit more to get everything separately. If I were to know everything in the box I would not have gotten it all but I think the excitement on those few items I would want plus a surprise book is worth the other things I didn’t want.

Sunday Shopping – Happy Hello! Harry Potter

sundayshopping

Soo many new segments guys! We all love book merch and while most of my money goes towards getting more books sometimes I spurge on things that have to do with them. Welcome to Sunday Shopping, where I will be talking about said little goodies. Going into my overall love for them, how they feel, size, how much they cost me, where I got them from, and anything else I feel like you need to know about. Lets move on!

Happy Hello!

My first seller I will be talking about, and I can already tell I will be talking about a lot more in future posts is Happy Hello! Co. They are a really cute little etsy store that mostly do super cute little magnetic bookmarks from books, tv and just random bits of goodness.

After much hard looking through the store, I decided to buy their Harry Potter bookmarks!

Now there was only one set when I did my first round of purchasing, but then when I was looking like a week later, these bad boys popped up, and I just had to get them as well.

How did I find the store – Random etsy searching and from the youtuber Little Book Owl.

How much (AU) + Shipping – $8 per set + $6.40 shipping to aus. Etsy is super helpful and lets you change what currency and where it is being shipping to so make sure you check your info!

Size – About 5 cm, depending on which one you are looking at.

Feel – Really nice and silky smooth matt photo paper.

Quality – Lovely and sturdy, will not break without a bit of effort.

My thoughts – I am so so so happy. They are just so cute. I was going to say which one was my favourite out of them but its hard. I love the ones that have their little pets. And Dumbledore. Malfoy is my least favourite. I am super happy with the quality. They feel amazing, and when they are in the book they are not heavy enough to damage the pages and they don’t want to fall out. I put one in a book and gave it a really good shake and if they are towards the edge they can slip, so just stick them close to the spine :)

Will I be visiting this store again – Yes. So much yes. I am already planning my next 12 visits. I am going to have to control myself enough to visit other stores for this segment.
