Being an anti e-Reader/Kindle sort of girl, I’m thrilled to be keeping 2 of them for myself, donating 3 of them to a Michigan charity, and hosting a giveaway for 3 of them during Black Friday week. I absolutely love them, don’t you? I think it is so nice that Carol sent me the extra cat bookmark, since she must have visited my blog and seen my cat’s page. I had only asked for the horse bookmark because when I lived in Nevada, where Carol lives, I loved nothing more than going to Red Rock Canyon to hike and hopefully watch the wild mustang run.
Most of their bookmarks retail for $5.99, and all are made by hand. While the owners still make bookmarks, they also hire young mentally ill adults and women with a need to work from home to make their products. I love knowing that they help out people who really need jobs, as I’ve been unemployed for a while now and know how hard it is for me–a college grad with job experience in multiple fields–to find work. Twin Cottage Industries will also custom order and will put a corporate logo or special image on their ‘charms’ in one of 2 ways: by decoupage on a lightweight wooden disk, or on a plastic shrinky-dink type of material. If I ever finish my own book and get it published, I think I’d love to hire them to make bookmarks with my book cover on them. How fun would that be?
Using my bookmark was a snap, since the beaded bungee bookmarks are made to adjust to fit both paperback and hardbound books. I love that the elastic bungee allows me to keep my page, as I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dropped a book and lost my page when the bookmark (or mail) I was using slipped out. I think these bookmarks are fabulous, and I’d definitely purchase them myself, either as gifts or for myself, especially since Twin Cottage Industries are also offering my readers a 25% discount. Their Beaded Bungee Bookmarks come in 16 different styles, such as fancy glass beads, simple glass beads, large stone beads, small stone beads, silver beads, silver chains, wire wrapped beads, bone beads, hemp and natural beads, paper beads with bells, paper beads with affirmation rings, paper beads with silver charms, paper beads with decoupage charms, pewter animal charms, pewter beach and sea charms, pewter shell charms. Besides their bookmarks, they also sell Ewe Too Soap, AdoraPulls, La Lanyards, and Key Clips.
An elastic, adjustable & decorative bookmark that readers love! Great for hardbound and paperback books. Most retail for $5.99. These economical yet decorative bookmarks are the gift that keeps on giving, as this company donates 1% of their profits to the Psychiatric Service Dog Society.
