inside the anne of green gables box!

Ahhhhhh more Anne of Green Gables surprise box goodness to talk about today! And some FUN NEWS down below that you are going to be extremely delighted about. I'm showing & telling a bit more of the box contents, now that my first batch has been mailed - and if you missed the announcement on my Instagram - I'm going to be offering the Anne boxes all year round - because I love Anne that much, and I had no intention of having this box only being a flash in the pan and disappearing.

If you're just now hearing about my Anne of Green Gables surprise boxes, please pop over to this post, where it explains a bit more about what's inside, and what the book style looks like!

Also - this post isn't showing everything in the box - not shown are the darling bookmarks, stationery items, and pencils. Oh actually I'm re-using last week's Cool Stuff post lead photo - here it is again showing some of the postcards:


So just to recap - the Anne surprise boxes will have a BOOK - you tell me which title in the series you would like - and I have some paperback editions that I'm using that have the prettiest cover art! Also included: some Anne fabric, darling washi deco tape that seems very Anne-esque, a gorgeous postcard, an Anne pencil, lemon-raspberry candies, fruity herbal teas, a bookmark and stickers!

The Anne boxes are $50 plus shipping/handling, U.S. only. If you'd like one, email me at juliasbookbag (at) gmail (dot) com or leave a comment down below, and I'll send you an invoice!

But I also have to share THIS DOSE OF COOL: there's an amazing contest going on hosted by - the official site of the original Anne of Green Gables movies! This post is not sponsored, but they got in touch with me and asked me to share their news, which I'm delighted to do. You can enter for a chance to win a digital copy of the entire Anne of Green Gables collection at

The last day of the contest is May 31, so there are 6 days left to enter this Anne contest and win a free digital copy collection. And I'm totally thrilled to discover GazeboTV from Sullivan Entertainment - so. many. movies. 'Road to Avonlea', 'An Avonlea Christmas', allllllllll the Anne movies with Megan Follows, and scores of other movies and shows. There's a movie version of 'Jane of Lantern Hill'!!!! Guys? I'M ENTERING THIS CONTEST MYSELF, ha ha. You need to check this out!

Ok I'm giddy from all this Anne goodness. I've had my foot on the gas pedal pretty hard with the Anne biz, but when someone wrote to me after getting a box for her daughter, I knew it was all worth it:
"Your package was amazing!! It brought her so much joy and excitement and delight.
Honestly, she will remember this box for the rest of her life. It was already her favorite book, but this box was very special."
 So yeah after reading that, I CRIED. Anne has been so personally meaningful to me, and if I can share that in any way with others, why yes I will cheerfully sit packing and wrapping up Anne boxes alllllllldayyyyyylong. #annefan4life

  3. Hello, I know this is an old post but are you doing monthly Anne boxes? Or was this a one time offer?

    1. Hi!! I was planning on talking more about the Anne boxes this spring, but I'm happy to talk now! I don't do these monthly, but I do still have materials stocked to do more Anne boxes. Roughly the same materials as I have been using previously, some things get switched around depending on if it is a child box or an adult box. I will make them available until I run out of stock! If you are interested, please email me at juliasbookbag (at) gmail (dot) com, and let me know if you're interested in one of these for an adult or a child. Happy to chat more via email!
