Enchanted Fandom was created by Jess, your everyday Fan-Girl. She started out crafting handmade items, such as mugs, wine glasses and socks based on some of her favorite fandoms. Her items have been featured in multiple articles such as Buzzfeed, The Berry, and The Huffington Post. The items she made were a bit different and she soon realized there were a lot of fun fandoms being left out of the craft world.
She decided she couldn’t be the only one missing out on so many
fandoms, so she launched her first exclusive box in April of 2017 which sold out in 30 mins. It was then that Enchanted Fandom was born.
The idea was to have a place to include all fandoms in a box. There are so many different fandoms and some seemed to overshadow others which leaves a lot left behind. In the Enchanted Fandom box, you can expect to find fandoms from all different genres. This includes movies, books, TV, and pop culture; giving way to the motto: NO FANDOM LEFT
BEHIND.Being a handmade crafter for so long, Jess wanted to make a place to support other small businesses. Each box features items from at least 5 small businesses each month. While making her dreams come true, she hopes to help other small businesses in the process.
So, make your way down that Yellow Brick Road. Travel through time and space in your favorite TARDIS. Do the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs. Grab your Floo Powder and find your nearest fireplace. Call on your fiercest dragon and become an Enchanted Fandom Fan.
Hey Atlas Creative
Started by Cade Roach in 2017, Hey Atlas is a bookish shop filled with bright, colorful, and inspiring photography featuring equally inspiring quotes from everyone’s favorite books and fandoms. Products include bookmarks, vinyl stickers, art prints, journals, pins, calendars and beanies. Hey Atlas products have been featured in all of the top bookish subscription boxes like OwlCrate, The Bookish Box, Illumicrate, and more. However, Cade's true passion lies in “Creating Good." Each month, they design a limited edition bookmark where ALL proceeds go directly to a non-profit. Hey Atlas is also a full-service creative studio that specializes in everything from custom illustration and branding, to both print and web design.
My name is Julie Grogan and I am the owner/designer behind the brand, Latherati. I create custom-blended, book-inspired fragrances. The product lineup currently includes perfume, soap, lotion, beard oil/balm, soy wax melts and milk soaking salts. I try to capture the feel of a book with blends that will transport you to the settings of your favorite books, like the moors of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, the farms of Pearl Buck’s The Good Earth or the Isle of Sky in Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse. It’s a literary scent journey for book lovers.
Latherati originally launched on etsy in 2009 as Latherati Soap Foundry. Shows such as the Bust Craftacular and NY regional shows found fans among the literary minded. Latherati was also featured in the book The Art of Soap by Debbie Chialtas. Closing the doors in December of 2011, my life wandered down another path but I dearly missed my shop, my customers, my dream.
In the years that followed, I received many emails telling me Latherati was very much missed and wondering when it would return. One message truly inspired me. A
customer wore a Latherati fragrance on a first date with a man who would later become her husband. The bottle was almost depleted and she was savoring what was left. For her, that fragrance was strongly attached to that event, her first date. Scent memory, it’s
called. I kept that story in my head and I dreamed of a Latherati relaunch. Latherati relaunched in August 2017 with the original etsy shop and in October 2017
with an independent website. Many original fragrances made a return and the scent library keeps growing to include new fragrances, new books and new products. I have a passion for reading and creating fragrance blends and want to share that with you.

Whiskey Diamond Candle Co.
Whiskey Diamond Candle was originally born out out of my idea to create a company to honor all women and tie in 2 different sides that I believe all of us women have. The “Whiskey” symbolizes the powerful, confident, wild side and the “Diamond” is symbolic for the classy, sexy side that likes to shine bright! I wanted this company to capture all the beautiful fragrances in this world but focusing mainly on my love for literature, reading and all things bookish. My main focus in creating candles, is to provide you with candles that are uniquely creative and (hopefully) can’t find anywhere else!
