Booksmarks, book prints, coasters, t-shirts, enamel pins – I love them all! And I’ve found the best place to shop for all things bookish is Etsy. You get to support independent creators and can find some absolutely amazing things in their shops. I love decorating my bookshelves (and my whole room) with book-related items, and I also enjoy just browsing Etsy stores. These are some of my absolute favourite bookish bits and my favourite stores.
Just a quick disclaimer: this is not sponsored or affiliated in any way, it’s just me sharing my favourite places to find bookish content!

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 just have matte card bookmarks but they can also come laminated. 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 shop, even though I haven’t actually bought from them before. However, this is purely because I cannot decide what I would like to get. This shop creates custom book cover designs on a range of items, from fridge magnets to earrings, and I obviously want to customise mine with the cover of The Starless Sea but I cannot decide what I’d like it on. A necklace? A pin? A bracelet charm? I can’t decide! But I do hope to shop here in the future and I know from the ridiculous amount of 5 star reviews that I will not be disappointed.
So, those are 5 of my favourite Etsy shops. If you have another store to add, or sell on Etsy yourself, leave a link in the comments as I’d love to check them out! Hope everyone is having a lovely week! x
