I am very pleased and like last year, a little bit excited, to announce that the Coffee and Crime Classic Crime Advent Calendar is back and this time it is available to purchase through October and November.
If you missed the launch last year, you may be wondering what to expect so here is a quick summary:
Each advent calendar will contain:
- 12 Classic Crime Books (Preloved but in good condition.)
- 8 Chocolate Treats
- 4 Mystery themed gifts
Each item will have a mystery themed tag attached which shows which day it is be opened or consumed. Gift it to a friend or better still treat yourself to a Christmas of classic crime!
If you bought the calendar last year, (thanks!!), then you need not fear receiving the same gifts, as I have sourced new items.

I have been hunting high and low for books over the summer, and at one point my Mum did query whether I had left any classic crime books left on the Internet, for anyone else to buy. Don’t worry I did… the £19,800 (+ £3.25 P&P) copy of Peril at End House is definitely still available!!! (Seriously you think they would offer free postage…)
To cater for different mystery reading tastes, I have been collecting titles from a variety of authors ranging from H. C. Bailey and J. J. Connington to Rex Stout, John Stephen Strange, Charlotte Armstrong and Patrick Quentin. I’ve also been keeping my eyes peeled for Christmas titles as well, including from the likes of Joan Coggin and Lorna Nicholl Morgan. JJ will also be very pleased that I have tracked down a copy of The Amazing Test Match Crime!
This product is only available for those in the UK. Apologies to those living elsewhere, but postage costs are bit too steep and I was also concerned about the calendar arriving in one piece. However, my book box subscription service is more widely available.
To purchase this item at its lowest price I would recommend buying it during October when the Early Bird price will be available.
In order to keep postage costs down this item will be dispatched in two parcels. One half of the calendar will go in one package and the second half in the other.
Both parcels will be dispatched via second class post. Bear this in mind when purchasing this order, as if you buy this item at the very end of November, then it may not arrive in time for 1st December.
If you have a food allergy please contact me via the button on the Etsy listing, before purchasing this item, so I can make sure I don’t send you any inappropriate chocolate treats.
You can also contact me on Etsy for any other queries relating to the product. Always happy to answer questions.
