I have ordered a few variations/combinations of covers and pages and all of them have been amazing. I love the idea of saving something someone else doesn’t want and as a stationary and Disney lover this was really the perfect shop for me.

Every single notebook I’ve purchased has been absolutely beautiful. The whole idea is fantastic and I love that we’re giving a new lease of life to much loved books!

I have two notebooks and both are absolutely beautiful. My first one was a present from my daughter and I loved it so much I visited the site and bought another. Such a wonderful idea to recycle old book, the quality and service is second to none. Read more »

I have bought quite a few of these notebooks now both for myself and for members of my family. Everyone I have given one to has been very impressed at the quality and the obvious care that has gone into producing them. They even arrive packaged in such a way that they can be given straight to the recipient!! Read more »

I ordered a Ivor the Engine diary from Retro from Scratch with a glittery book band for some added sparkle! Having a blank template to fill in dates myself has meant I can still use the same diary as last year because I didn't need to fill in 2020 thanks to covid!! I love that I still have some of the original... Read more »
