Moon and Dreams is a paper good and lettering shop found online. They sell different sort of products such as posters, prints, notebooks and calendars all inspired by the moon and stars. They do have a very strong theme of the universe thus their slogan “Moon & Dreams – Paper goods inspired by the universe”.
The First Time.
I knew about the shop the first time thru another instagram shop they are linked with (@Lalocal). I am a very big fan of Lalocal, which consist of many different creative entrepreneurs that sell products in one shop. So, when I found Moon and Dreams I instantly fell in love; followed their account, visited their blog, watched their instastories—you know the drill. Not long after stalking them, they posted about selling some goods with minor defects in a mystery bag for a lesser price. And being the broke ass that I am, I thought this might be a good chance to finally do the first purchase.
What I got:
(quantity – item)
- 1 A5 unlined plain notebook
- 2 A6 Notebooks with Print
- 4 Prints
- 9 Stickers
Impression on the Items.
The goods were supposed to be (slightly) defected that didn’t pass the standard. But in the eyes of an unprofessional, they are perfectly fine. I specially love the stickers which they give me a lot. I was fantasizing all of their items when I ordered that I forgot to read the whole description. I was hoping to receive a patch or more moon prints but it’s only the stickers, notebooks, and prints that will be included in the bag. I already have the same notebooks that I received but it’s okay I mean I got them on a discounted price. Lesson: never get overly excited to forget reading the details.
Would I purchase again?
I will definitely purchase again from Moon and Dreams. I love their theme and most of the products are really beautiful and unique. This is my first of many creative goods purchases from local artists which I truly TRULY support.
On the other hand, mystery bags. I don’t think mystery bag is my style. I’m quite a thrifty woman; I don’t want wasting money on things which is not useful for me. I’d rather much choose what goes into my cart because I might receive something that I already own or something that I don’t like and that would be such a waste. We WANT to be mindful buyers (emphasis on want). Although, its always tempting to order one again hahaha.
Nevertheless I’m not generalizing all of mystery bags, if I love ALL the products from a shop and I’m okay with getting anything from it then I will definitely make another purchase of a mystery bag.
If you would like to know more about them:
For those living in Manila, you may also find them at different trades, bazaars and at the store called La Local.
