Bookish Refurbs

Who doesn’t love a little second-chance romance?


Second-hand shopping and thrifting has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Someone’s “old” can be my “new” and I was okay with that. With my shop opening, I’ve had the opportunity to play around with new medium and learn new design techniques. The shop may have started out with bookish merch for my novels then on to stickers and eventually, I added apparel.

But although the apparel were designed by me, they’re still not produced in-house (yet). It’s a goal to strive for but also one that’s sprouted this idea!

For my Bookish Refurbs collection, I will be taking gently used clothing, accessories, and housewares and giving it a bookish revival with an affordable price tag to my fellow Bibliophiles. I’ll quality check each item prior to purchasing it because this won’t be just a cheap flip project. I want to provide the best quality I can.

Bookish Refurbs will NOT be listed on my Etsy but will only be listed on my Patterns Powered by Etsy store.  

Most items will be one-of-a-kind items so please be sure to carefully read descriptions for sizes. I’ll be as transparent as I can be in the listing detail so you can decide if the refurb will have a home with you or not.

PS…Grimmothy will most likely appoint himself Lead QA on this project as well!

Happy Shopping!
