Here is a list of my favourite bookish shops. Some you may have seen me promoting on my site or Instagram already. These are all independent, small businesses who I am honoured to support during these times.
Keep coming back as I will update this as and when I discover more companies.
Please note, I will not recommend shops without trying their products first so that I can be completely honest about their items.
Fox Fang Books – This is a UK based company I recently discovered who sell pre-loved horror and thriller books. If you are into your King and Koontz or your Herbert or Laymon is definitely your one stop shop. They are very reasonably priced and great service. During December they also have a fantastic little book box called Secret Krampus which consists of three mystery titles and some awesome badges for a mere £12, I would definitely recommend it to boost your horror library.
Little Bookish Company – This is one of my favourite places for bookish candles so far. This is a UK based company, but unlike some mainstream candles these will omit a nice, strong scent for a long time and the wax melts are divine. The owner and creator of the store, Lauren also has a Patreon account so if you like the products you can support her further there. She does some awesome limited edition selections but you have to be so quick as they sell out very fast.
SerenitybySoph – This is another UK based small wax melt business (can you see a pattern yet) and this is in fact the first one I found. This one isn’t book related but she does some amazing products, I bought the serenity pack which included 4 big snap bars and my favourite is Amber and Lavender, check out her page and DM her to order.
Fictional Boutique – Yes, it is another book candle store but they also do other objects such as bookmarks and mugs (I bought my first book mug from her and I love it! This is a Slovenia based company but the delivery is very fast to the UK. These candles once again smell amazing and she often decorates the top with glitter and confetti to add that extra glitz. She has also just recently launched a new store which is selling wood wick candles. I am very excited to try it out soon.
Scentuals – This is a company I recently discovered through Instagram. they sell wax melts and soon bath and body items. The products are amazing, they smell great and they package it up so beautifully. They also often add in a few treats. My favourite product so far is the Midnight Bloom, but I am saving the Christmas scents for a bit closer to the time.
