  3. Bookish book stack
    April - Bookstack - what we're looking forward to reading this month

    Hey bookworms, it's been a while since this blog was updated but I'm changing that with a look at our newest products and a shop update on some much needed changes.

    If you've stopped by the website recently, you'll notice that there's a lot of new products at Miss Bohemia.  We decided it was time for an overhaul! We'll be keeping a lot of our old classics but some designs will be removed to make way for the new.  Most noticeably our sleek black mugs are currently sold out but they will be back in September, the slimline Austen mugs will be going, as will our silver rim enamel mugs and mini mugs.

    1. Bookish prints

    We've updated our bookish prints and in addition to giving them a make-over we've added some new and inspiring designs here. Our new Love Notes/Print range features a set of 4 notes complete with a rustic styled envelope and these are available with quotes from the following book titles;- Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and Pride & Prejudice and can be viewed here.

    Book lovers are sure to love our new literary enamel mugs. They have a sleek and glossy style and I've included a mix of vintage/gothic and classic designs. We will be switching all the silver rim version over to the our new black rim mugs soon. If you're quick you can get yourself a bargain as some silver rim stock is on sale. These are great for tea and coffee drinkers alike and make great gifts! View the full collection here.

    3. Campfire cozy bookish mugs

    If you're after something a little more rustic looking, you can't go wrong with our newest campfire styled mugs.  These bad boys hold 450ml of liquid and weigh a lot more than our regular 11oz mugs.  They're available in beige and there's currently 3 designs (tea, coffee and one for Gilmore Girls fans) but more will be added to this range soon.  Perfect for rainy days when you just want to drink tea/coffee and stay in and read books.

    I'm so delighted to be able to introduce a new range of literary tea cups and saucers! If you're looking for an alternative to regular mugs, these tea cups are perfect for tea drinkers and they can also double up as expresso cups too.  There's a Wonderland design and a Jane Austen one too and you'll see more appearing as the range grows.
