I realized that I only make lists at the end of the calendar year when I’m looking back at what I have accomplished, but there are so many other times when a list of awesome things would be appropriate. I know I’m always finding cool bookish things that I want to share with you all, so I’m starting this Top 5 series to highlight some of those items.
I shop from ETSY a lot (I bought many of my wedding gifts/accessories there, anniversary gifts, birthday gifts/cards) and have always had very good luck with the sellers on there and have found excellent quality products. If you have never shopped ETSY it is a site that brings together mostly smaller “stores” selling handmade or vintage items. This month I thought it would be cool to highlight 5 literary themed ETSY shops that have some great gifts for every book lover and carry goods that span from jewelry, to art prints, to even fabric and clothing! I haven’t yet purchased anything from these specific shops, so I don’t have personal experience with them, so I’m rating them based on what I think of the goods they carry. Links for each shop are provided below the description if you are interested in checking them out!
5. CSLiterary Jewelry
This shop has some really cute charm bracelets. The one above is from A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare. They also feature rings, necklaces, brooches, and more. Everything seems to be a reasonable price too.
4. Rooby Lane
This is the shop for you literary fabric needs! Everything in this shop is SUPER cute. The above is one of many awesome skirts featuring literary characters or book classics. She also carries scarves, dresses, and accessories. Gorgeous work!
3. Obvious State
Obvious State is a print shop – they carry wall art, mugs, tote bags, note cards, etc., all with a literary theme!
2. Literary Emporium
LiteraryEmporium has a little bit of everything: pins, pencils, note cards, some jewelry. I have always loved these book lover/writing quote pencils and I keep waiting to get some for Christmas/birthday etc… *hint hint husband*
1. A Likely Story
I’ve had my eye on this shop for awhile. They are basically jewelry (bracelets, earrings, necklaces), but they also have a few other things like bookmarks. I love the idea of the bracelets like the above and there is a variety of wordings that they feature. This would be a perfect gift!
Do you shop from ETSY? Do you have a favorite literary shop or item that you have purchased or had your eye on? Please share with us as I’m sure we would love to see more!
