REVIEW: Cranfield's Curiousity Package

This post is a little late coming, but i thought better late than never.
I received more cash than expected  for my birthday, so decided to treat myself to a little gift for the house, something a little different. 

So when I saw that the taxidermist, Cranfield's Curiosity Cabinet, was selling his curiosity packages I knew I needed to get one.

So what's the deal? 

Keep an eye on Mr Cranfield's Instagram, and when he posts his details on the packages it has all the steps.
Basically you send him some money, however much you like, via Paypal, with some details of what you do and do not like.

So I sent £50 and I was massively impressed  with my items.
As you can see, Mr Cranfield does read the notes, and I got an amazing box. 



1. Feline skull

2. Slice of Brazilian agate with stand
3. Brazilian amethyst
4. Geode quartz dyed purple
5. Bivalve shell





The collection is now dotted around my home.

Would I buy again? Absolutely.
They are great for a new collector who is just starting their collection, or for someone with a well established collection as a gift. Your budget can be big or small; it will be catered for. Bones, minerals, taxidermy, butterflies and fossils are just some of the items you could have on your doorstep.

Check out the Taxidermist on Instagram for updates on his shop and new items.
