At the Goblin Market, one stall features a variety of hand-carved wooden boxes. A few are shaped like songbirds, with hand-painted details. They could hold the tiniest of treasures; what would you hide inside?
To open your box, press down on the tail feathers and rotate the back panel so that it snaps open. Note that the panel opens in only one direction: to the bird's left.
Your Songbird Trinket Box is hand-carved and hand-painted. Measuring about 5.5 inches in length, each one is unique. Made in Russia (and imported before the war), they possess an Old-World charm.
Shipping: Single items and non-box products ship for a flat rate of $7.00. Non-subscription products usually ship within 3 business days of purchase.

This little box is so beautiful! The hinge can be a little difficult to open and it's delicate enough that I wouldn't recommend constantly opening and closing it. I haven't decided what I'll be putting in it but for now it looks pretty on my end table with a few of my other Birdmoss trinkets!
This beautiful hand-carved and painted songbird is a stunning example of Ukrainian folk art. Not only is it beautiful, but it holds a secret sliding door in its wing that covers a tiny compartment to store a treasure. This would be a perfect place to hold an engagement ring for a bird lover. In addition to purchasing a limited edition work of wood carver’s art, you are helping sustain an artist in war torn Ukraine.
The blue bird box is bigger and more detailed than it looked on line and has GLASS EYES! I thought that the eyes were just painted, but they look right at you!!. The carving was truly "folksy", but nicely carved. The colors were vibrant, and the painting was nice. The tail moves to display a small secret hiding place ....please be careful when opening the tail, it only should go one way, and spins on a little peg. A perfectly magical box, for a child....or an adult who still loves hiding places, and beautiful magical boxes. This is my second purchase from Birdmoss, and I could not be more pleased. i also think that given the cheap stuff you see at big box stores, the price point was well worth it.
The first one we received broke in one day. Shannon is great and a new one sent immediately. Received second bird trinket box- but it's too tight to open. It will just be a nice bird to display.
I put feathers in the little compartment…
Helps me keep the bluebird in my heart.
