This morning I’m slightly twisting today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt, rather than sticking to ten single bookish items I’m sharing ten book merch shops where I could easily spend a fortune if I had the money!
All photos are from the respective websites and I’ll link to the main web page and the individual featured items in my post!

Bookish Items/Merchandise I’d Like to Own
I must confess to loving the old style Penguin books so the Penguin selection makes me smile.
I always feel bad if I’m carrying around a book in my handbag to read on my commute and it accidentally gets dog-eared so I think I need to invest in one of these beautiful book sleeves.
I love the Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan artwork on these items from missbohemia – they’re beautiful! I also really love this necklace
I absolutely love so many of the pins that are available on LiteraryEmporium, and Katherina is possibly my favourite Shakespeare character. The Harry Potter notepads are beautiful and the jewellery is stunning! I’d totally wear the Frankenstein earrings has Harry Potter ones and the heart necklace totally calls to my dark heart!
LiteraryGalaxy has some beautiful bookmarks and jewellery. I think after Christmas I may have to treat myself!
I love a good candle and even better if they’re inspired by books! My favourite Bookish Candle place appears to have shut down so Bookish Burns is on my list to try, they look great!
With shipping costs these are just too expensive for me to justify buying but I really do love them! And yes they’re slightly more inspired by the TV / Film adaptations but they still count!
Museum Context are an official Harry Potter Merch retailer with a bricks and mortar shop in Edinburgh and I’m pretty certain if I had it I could easily spend £1,000 in here without even blinking! It’s all gorgeous but not cheap!
The Nobel Collection are another retailer with a huge Harry Potter collection. Most impressive are the film prop replicas – I saw the Ravenclaw Diadem in Blackwells Edinburgh recently and almost drooled! Far too expensive for me to justify buying at the moment. Once that lottery win comes in though…
Bookishly have so many beautiful things that totally match my aesthetic! Their dust jacket editions are just absolutely beautiful and I love their prints and other items too
I also have a soft spot for Funko Pop and now Lego Brick Headz! But there are ten bookish merch shops that I often look enviously upon wishing I had endless amounts of spare cash to spend!
Do you have bookish merch shops that you just keep going back to? Is there any bookish merch you wish existed? I’d love to see some Dark Gifts merch out there! Let me know in the comments!
