Meet the team

We are a collaboration of individual small businesses, indie authors, and merchandise creators that have come together to bring you a non-subscription based book box that offers high quality hand made items and indie books. We have partnered with local coffee shops to also include coffee and chocolate samples in our Plus & Deluxe boxes. 

Kiah, Katie & Tasha are the main brains behind the collaboration. We all brainstorm ideas on how it should be structured and what products to include. We also partner with several other small businesses that contribute to the boxes. 

Kiah McDaniel is one-half of the artists behind Perspective Shift Bookish Shop and handles the majority of business functions and social media for Merch With Indies.

She is currently licensed to make merchandise for Sarah J Maas, Frankie Diane Mallis, Aly Beck, Caroline Peckham & Susanne Valenti, and JM Wallace.
