Final Conclusion.

Overall it looks like there are some very nice and original book nook kits in this Etsy shop, I especially like the one with the hidden shelf in it! Personally, the finished ones look a bit simple for me, but of course, you can always expand those yourself and be creative!

Where to get this item.

On Etsy.

The good and the bad :

The good

  • sells different types of book nook kits, from simple designs to more advanced
  • one of them includes a mirror, which I like a lot personally because it gives your book nook and impression of being a lot larger or has a long street for example, nice!
  • free shipping costs
  • returns and exchanges accepted
  • buyers are raving over this shop

The bad

  • I can not find anything negative to say about this shop actually

Final Conclusion.

I would definitely buy from this shop and I even probably will in the future, once I would find out some more about how to make a book nook myself because it seems like a very different craft than making a dollhouse. Not easy I think!

 

Shop number 4. Beedlesboat.

This Etsy shop makes or sells.

(Anime) badges, Simpsons and gaming pins, Rick and Morty, home decor, mugs, laser-cut items and so much more.

Some more info about this shop.

The book nook shelf insert kit on his Etsy shop is laser cut and includes lights and basic instructions. It is Harry Potter style. It looks like this shop has 2 book nook kits, but they look exactly the same to me.

Price:

$99,70

Overall rank:

And I will tell you why I am not giving this 5 stars below.

Where to get this item.

On Etsy.

 

The good and the bad :

The good

  • This kit makes a complete book nook, you would just need to glue it together and paint it (or just leave it blank like that as you wish
  • free shipping costs
  • well cut and comes together nicely

The bad

  • lacks decent instructions
  • sells only 1 book nook kit, so it is hard to tell if the 5 stars for just this product only would be correct (not enough reviews to decide on this is the reason for me to lose a half star).

Final Conclusion.

This kit looks beautiful and I would buy it, I am just a little bit unsure about the instructions not being clear enough and that I would lose my patience haha!

 

Shop number 5. KatNookDE

Overall rank:

Where to get this item.

    Great article and I like the comparisons, I always like to do my research and you have done it here for me, thanks. I will show my daughter as her birthday is coming up and I think I have found a present for her.
