Hey guys! My FairyLoot Chain of Gold Collector’s Edition box arrived yesterday evening so I thought I’d post an unboxing for it today! Unfortunately I was not a huge fan of the items in the box or the book itself, so I will be selling the entire box at some point.
My main thoughts were that the items were nice but impractical, I already have lots of similar items and I don’t have the storage space anymore. The book was nice but I much prefer the Waterstone’s exclusive edition, which was purple and gold, so that’s why I’ve decided to sell the book too. Anyway, here’s what came in the box:
Mortal Cup Replica (FairyLoot): I was really excited when FairyLoot announced there would be a mortal cup replica, but it didn’t end up being as nice as I thought it would be! It looks a bit tacky for me and it’s not been painted well, I don’t think.
James and Cordelia Tapestry (@monolimeart): This item is gorgeous, I love the artwork. The only reason I’ve decided not to keep this is storage space. At the moment I don’t have anywhere to hang this and I think it would be difficult to maintain it even if I did have the space. I can see this just sitting in a draw for months and years, and it deserves to be displayed. It really is stunning!
Wooden Bookmark (@stellabookishart): The design on this is nice but the wood is really delicate, I’m worried I’d snap it by accident. I already have a wooden bookmark and that’s a lot sturdier, which I prefer, so that’s my reason for not keeping this bookmark.
James Book Sleeve (noverantale): I am a huge fan of book sleeves; however, by this point I have way too many and I don’t need another. Plus I’m not even using them with being in lockdown so this would definitely end up shoved in a drawer! I do like this sleeve though, especially the zip at the top, I think that would be really handy!
Art Print (@merwildandco): Apparently, this is a bonus item. I have too many art prints already and I don’t want another one. Also, I’m not really a fan of this one!
Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare: Finally, the book! I like the sprayed edges, but I’m not really a fan of the dark cover. Like I said, I prefer the purple and gold Waterstones edition.
I feel like I’ve been really negative about this box and I don’t mean to be because the items were really nice, but I just know I’m not going to use or display them. What did you think of this box? Feel free to leave a comment below. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
