I loved Etsy long before I started reading again, but once my love for books reappeared, so did my desire to find bookmarks, prints, coasters and enamel pins that celebrated being bookish. On Etsy I get to support independent small businesses and find absolutely amazing creatives sharing their artistic talents. I love browsing through book-related items and, obviously, buying pieces to decorate my bookshelves with.
I am sharing five of my favourite Etsy shops below:
Mini disclaimer: this is not sponsored in any way. I am just sharing creators I really love.
I had to start with my favourite shop. Gracie has the cutest art style and I am in love with the bookmarks and postcards I have from her shop. I’m particularly in love with the cat bookstack bookmark, which I have in two variations! I’ve stuck the postcards up under my bookshelves as they are too pretty to send to anyone else. I chose to have matte card bookmarks, but there is also the option of laminated card. They are perfect.

If you love fantasy series and magnetic bookmarks, you’ll love this shop. Epikpage does the cutest magnetic bookmarks for popular series such as The Cruel Prince, Outlander, ACOTAR, Throne of Glass, Crescent City, the Grisha trilogy and many more. There are also lots of animal designs and they aren’t limited to magnetic bookmarks — there are also regular bookmark designs and posters. I have quite a few of their magnetic bookmarks and they are stuck on my bookshelf, but I do also use them as bookmarks. I’m looking forward to reading Outlander and using my Jamie bookmark!

Another shop with an absolutely beautiful illustration style! They don’t focus entirely on books and book-related items, but there are several bookmarks, pins and coasters that are all bookish. I absolutely love my Book Lover coaster and definitely have my eye on a few more bits from their shop.
This shop is run by my wonderful bookstagram friend, Amber, where she sells booksleeves. I must admit with lockdown I haven’t needed to transport a book in quite some time but when I do these booksleeves are absolutely perfect. She has a range of different fabric designs and even though I went for this cute paw heart design, I’m currently eyeing up the navy and floral one!
Finally, I had to include this Etsy shop, which sells the most amazing custom book cover designs on a range of items. From fridge magnets to earrings to necklaces and bracelet charms, there is something for everyone. I love the idea of wearing a reminder of your favourite book.
