Shakespeare Gear on Etsy.Com

Etsy is a dangerous, dangerous site. And below is where I will prove this claim.

Lego Shakespeare – possibly THE BEST kind of Shakespeare?

This might not seem dangerous, but let me explain. I never knew this existed before. Now that I know it exist and where to find it, I can now want it. Someday, when I have extra money, I am going to buy this thing and love it.

How charming.

And I will most likely buy this as well. I can’t help it.

This might be even more charming.

Of course, I have always been a pearl fan so this charm bracelet might be more my style.

This way I come with a warning.

And if I’m fictionally buying bracelets for myself, I might as well throw in another necklace.

The opening line of Twelfth Night.

Or maybe two.

The full inscription says “A man can die but once” from Henry IV.

Or an awesome silver ring with an epic quote hidden inside.

Moving out of the jewelry realm, Etsy.Com has a ton of adorable Shakespeare themed bags as well.

Much Ado about Credit Cards.

Like this nice looking wallet that has the appearance of a Much Ado about Nothing book when closed.

Romeo, Romeo. Wherefore art thou bag?

Or this awesome Romeo and Juliet bag that looks like a book with handles.

A black bag matches everything – at least, with my limited fashion experience, this idea works.

And if I ever need a huge bag, I can just by myself this Complete Works of William Shakespeare bag.

Of course, no Shakespeare gear collection would be complete without some book related accessories.

Deny thy father and save my place in the story I’m reading.

I want these adorable Romeo and Juliet bookmarks, for starters.

Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand in the form of a Titus Andronicus themed journal.

I also want this bloody yet brilliant journal designed around Shakespeare’s bloodiest play – Titus Andronicus.

This takes the idea of pop-out book to a new level.

This is probably one of my favorite items on Etsy, but it is also one of the most expensive. I can only imagine how much work went into this piece and while it is expensive, I can’t say it’s not worth it. This is a piece I’d keep under glass and on display someplace for people to admire.

This is probably my favorite line from Much Ado about Nothing.

Finally, we get to something I can afford now.

Oh Etsy, you are such a dangerous place and now I’ve inadvertently created a list with links to all the things I want for myself someday. There goes any extra cash I planned on having in the next year.
