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.
ByRubyandco – If you are looking for awesome smelling wax melts and some fantastic accessories including wax melt burners then look no further. They have a great variety of scents and are always bringing in more sets. They also do a monthly box with some special scents. Plus as an added bonus, you can use Liz10 at the checkout for a 10% discount
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 launched a store which is selling wood wick candles. I am very excited to try it out soon.
Hannah’s Little Prints – This Etsy shop sells many pretty bookmarks and prints. They are beautifully finished, I recently ordered the ACOMAF one and I love it. Hannah is a really nice, friendly, approachable person, so if you have any custom requests just message her. But I highly recommend this shop. If you use LIZZIE10 at the checkout you can get a 10% discount off everything. With international shipping and free UK shipping what more could you want.
Scentuals – Another great shop which sells wax melts, 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.Their bath products are amazing as they only use natural products.
Words and Kisses – this was another company started during the lockdown and if you are a fan of romance reads you need to check this one out. She offers an amazing variety of romance books and merchandise. She also does a really good value monthly box filled with a book and some goodies.
Fox Fang Horror – this shop originally opened a while ago and was shut down but I am so happy to say they have reopened it!! This is a brilliant independent online shop which sells pre-loved horror books from Stephen King to Richard Laymon and so much more. I love the different editions they find and they are also very reasonably priced!!
