Bookish Purses – Retail Therapy

Last Retail Therapy post was such a daydream post with those bookish tubs and jacuzzi but this one is so something I’m considering buying.

Today I’m featuring these bookish purses from Rebound Designs. They are all mostly made with recycled book covers that were either damaged or going to be thrown away.

I love this lovely Pride & Prejudice purse as a huge fan of the book AND because I am OBSESSED with the color yellow.

 Or what about this Dracula book cover purse?

Or an Emma book purse?

I think the only downside, being a member of the “big ass bag brigade” because I need to fit books and my Nook in it, is that this purse looks a little small for what I normally use. BUT I think I may just have to get over that because these are WAY too awesome and stylish and would be such a great conversational piece I’m sure!

Check out her Etsy store for more bookish purses!

If I get one (because you know the funds for such things may be an issue with all the wedding spending), I’ll be sure to let you all know! I may just add it to my Christmas wishlist! What do you think of these?? Are you going to be hinting to your significant others that this purse is the perfect bookish gift for you?

Retail Therapy (1) – New Feature Right Hurrrr

 Retail Therapy is a new feature here at The Perpetual Page-Turner book blog in which I combine my love for bookish things and shopping. Each time I’ll feature bookish accessories, bookish themed items,  bookish goodies or gifts that are perfect for that bookish person in your life. From time to time I might throw in something random that I’m really wanting that might not be book- related…because I have a serious shopping habit and my boyfriend won’t support it like I know you all will 😛 At this point I’m not sure if it will be a weekly thing or a bi-weekly or just a spontaneous thing…we will see. If you want to join me in sharing fabulous bookish goodies…feel free to link me and let me know in the comments so I can check it out!

This first time around I’m going to showcase something that I found when I was shopping at Anthropologie this past week in Georgetown on my little vacation. This was actually what inspired me to start this feature after thinking about doing it for a few months! I have sooo many bookish goodies to share with you but it made the most sense to start with this one first.

I LOVE sending cute postcards to people so I about had a heart attack when I saw these because I know they’ll be perfect to send to all my bookish friends! They are a collection of 100 different postcards that feature a different title from Penguin’s collection of classic paperbacks. I am love with all things vintage-y and I do love me some classics so I honestly fell in love with these. I took them out of the box when I was there and the stock is very sturdy and not flimsy. I really want to figure out a way to incorporate these into my wedding next summer but we will see!  Some of the ones that I saw when I took them out of the box were Wuthering Heights, The Great Gatsby and Tender is the Night. And not going to lie…I really love the box they come in.

You can buy these bookish postcards at Anthropologie for $25. Be sure to put me on your postcard list if you buy these! 😛

*EDIT* Thanks to Chachic from Chachic’s Book Nook I’ve found out that these are cheaper from the Book Depository
