7 Bookish Stores to Spend All Your Money At

Posted by

*This bookish list was sponsored by Uber Prints*

A major part of being a bookworm is owning a LOT of bookish merchandise. Be it candles, book markers, prints and all that jazz. This list will feature some of my fav places to window shop, shop and drool at goodies over. List is in NO PARTICULAR ORDER.

1. Frostbeard Candles

At this point, Frostbeard is probably the ultimate place to buy candles from and has been around since before I was born (JK), but I thought I’d feature it anyway BECAUSE THEIR CANDLES make my heart beat faster.

2. Novelly Yours Candles

When you go home for a day to get some stuff done, sometimes one of those things is taking more candle photos 😂 I just couldn't resist! ⠀ 🕯⠀⠀⠀ The Currently Reading candle is still one of my favorites from when I added the Bookish-Type collection to the shop last year in April! I wanted to add a candle to the shop that appealed to #bookstagram as well as readers in general and I had so much fun coming up with the scents for it too! You wouldn't think book pages, coffee, and clean cotton with a hint of fireplace go together but they really blend to make an interesting and unique combination! I really love when unlikely scents combine to make a really neat overall scent! ⠀⠀⠀ 🕯⠀⠀⠀ Who out there already has the Currently Reading candle? I love hearing the reactions when people first get them! I think my favorite one was when someone said it smelled exactly like Barnes & Noble! 😳😍⠀ 🕯⠀⠀⠀ The shop is still closed for a while yet but thank you to everyone keeping it alive with all the pictures you continue to post!! I'm glad I still get to chat with everyone while the shop is on break because I just love this community so much! I also have MANY new and exciting things coming when the shop reopens, in many different ways. I can't wait to share them all with you! I'll continue to share updates and even some sneak peeks or hints on my Instagram story so don't miss those! I'll continue to update until the shop is back open! ⠀⠀ 🕯⠀⠀⠀ So the real question is, what are YOU currently reading?! I started binge reading the Jackaby books and I'm in the middle of Ghostly Echoes now and listening to The Way of Kings on audio! Then I think I'm starting The Valiant as my next read!! ⠀⠀⠀ 🕯⠀⠀⠀ #currentlyreading #amreading #candle #candles #novellyyours #etsy #etsyshop #books #instabooks #bookstagram #bookandcandle #literarycandles #bookishcandles #bookcandle #bookcandles #candleaddict #candlegram

Brittany, the shop owner, is also a book blogger which means she knows exactly what it is that we want book nerds want. Her candles look gorgeous and I love the wide range of fandom-y things she has!

3. Out of Print

'Tis the season… ☕️❄️🔥 #OOPholiday

The best thing about this store is that “each purchase helps to fund literacy programs and book donations to communities in need.” They don’t have as many specific fandom things but they have SO MANY FUCKING cute things for classic books and also general bookish merchandise. They make the perfect gifts to friends, family or yourself (because, baby, you’re worth it.)

4. Litographs

NEW #WizardOfOz design based on William Wallace Denslow's original Tin Man illustration!

This store is the epitome of bookish words. They take words from your fav books and turn them INTO ART. Products are a little on the pricier end but also hella gorgeous.

5. Skinny Hues

"Friends don't lie" *ponders ideas for more ST bookmarks*

Crini is super talented and her bookmarks jump out at me because of how esthetically pleasing they are. Super simple yet gorgeous and I want to own them ALL.

6. Happy Hello Co

I didn’t really use magnetic bookmarkers all that much until a friend gifted them to me but they are my literal fav now and Happy Hello Co has some of the cutest magnetic bookmarkers I’ve seen on the internet.

7. Madame Bricolage Press

I am not really into prints but I love those done on dictionary pages. This small etsy store definitely deserves more attention because the prints here are gorgeous. They are less bookish and more general but still super cute!

Uber Prints

Uber Prints is the perfect site for someone who is looking to wear their own designs. If you just wanted to make a t-shirt for yourself and had a specific design in mind that you had not seen anywhere on the internet, Uber Prints would be the place to go to. It is a little on the pricier end but their shirts are really good quality and you get to choose the shirt your design goes on. Its really nice because of the artistic freedom it allows you.

Rashika has been tired since 2013. There are very few things that spark joy for her besides a nice cup of tea, warm, baked goods, good books and good TV shows. She is here to pile onto your giant TBRs and to-watch lists. Offer her a cookie and she might be nice to you.

    Rashika this post is making me want to spend all my money! I actually ordered some candles from Frostbeard and I absolutely loved them. I’ve recently placed an order with Meraki Candles and can’t wait for them to arrive and also loved my order from MyBookmark. I can’t wait to check out some of your suggestions! 🙂

    I love the idea for this post! 🙂 And I’m so glad you featured Happy Hello Co. I love their bookmarks, and they’re so cute. Can’t wait to check out some of the other stores in this post!
