Fan of The Great Gatsby? Check Out These Etsy Goodies!

I remember back in high school in English class how The Great Gatsby seemed to be one of those books that teachers had to talk the students into liking – and no students really seemed to, outside of me. I’ve always liked those school books that everyone else said were a snore (Lord of the Flies, Pygmalion, etc.). I think the partial reason why we didn’t dig the book that much was because of the 1974 movie which was…kind of dull, and very, very pastel.

And over-exposed. It was so white and bright and blurry.

But it seems as if The Great Gatsby is now in vogue again, thanks in part to the latest incarnation of The Great Gatsby in film. Hannah and I have both seen the film by Baz Luhrmann released this year, and we both liked it a lot. Thanks to this film revitalization of a classic, interest in the book has skyrocketed once again and it’s no longer that book that kids don’t look forward to reading as juniors in high school. Consequently, Etsy.Com is filled with awesome goodies related to the book – here are a few of my favorites!

There are funny t-shirts:

Heck yes I do!

Well...it's true, and a little bit of a spoiler.

Awesome bags:

I don't have anything that would match with this bag, but I still want it.

I would tote around my groceries in this bad boy, or books.

Wall art made from quotes:

Those eyes...they would haunt me at night if I kept this in my bedroom.

And the rest, like jewelry, iPhone cases and confetti (I really like the confetti).

It's a locket! I love the idea of hiding pictures in a necklace book.

I wonder if this would fit on my iPod...

They say this confetti is supposed to be for weddings but I would use it in gifts and have it as decor...just 'cause it's awesome.
