Banned Book Week

“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them. -Ray Bradbury

Banned Book Week has caused us to reflect on novels in our personal library. One of our prized titles is a signed copy of Fahrenheit 451, which inspired these new bookmarks. Keep reading and open your mind to new things.

We will be exhibitors at the 2015 Newport Beach Book Fair on Sunday, October 4th. It is free to the public. This event will be held from 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM at The Newport Beach Tennis Club at 2601 East Bluff Dr. Newport Beach, CA 92660. Join us and place custom orders in person! 📚

This Day in History

This day in history: On September 27, 1905, Albert #Einstein published his three page paper on physics which accounted for a new dimension, time. He included his famous #formula E=mc2. Albert changed our perception of the #universe. In honor of his accomplishment, we are releasing a new Bibliophile Bookmark, made available on our website.

Chisme Chick | Necklaces

Today, we are introducing our Wanderlust necklaces!

“A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.”
John Steinbeck

In German, Wanderlust to means “enjoyment of hiking” or in modern usage a “desire to wander.” Our mini bottles have a piece of a map with the word “Wanderlust” created with a Remington Ten Forty typewriter. The traveler’s bottle captures small pieces from your journey. You can collect sand, small rocks, or anything you like from your adventures. Order it without the map to showcase your tiny collection of memories. We offer a unisex design, a leather band with natural wood endings, or a gold/silver chains that measure 18″ or 26″.

We are also featuring our handcrafted, storytelling necklaces. They are wonderful pieces that capture a personal memory. You can select any U.S. state and we’ll make it into a wooden, Americana necklace. We also offer pixie dust and dandelions. Enjoy the journey and mark it on our handcrafted wooden map!
