All the shops below are ones I have bought from and that have great products, customer service and delivery even if the shop is abroad. All sections also have a link straight to the shops so you should definitely go check out these brilliant shops!
1. Paper Flames Candle Co
A few months ago my friend from Bookstagram went on an attack of gentle persuasion to convince me I needed Bookish Candles in my life. Eventually she managed to convince and the first shop I bought bookish candles from was Paper Flames Candle Co. I’d been following Jordan’s Instagram account for the shop since she announced on Bookstagram that she would be making candles and I’m so glad about it. I currently have 5 candles from her shop (Le Cirque des Reves, Daylighter, Book Dragon, Parabatai and We Are The Thirteen) which all smell amazing and I also received her October box too! One of the best things about her candles though is that every candle has a beautiful and unique label design which all look so pretty. If you love bookish candles I urge you to go and check out Jordan’s shop!
2. Melvis Makes
Do you like Book Buddies? I honestly think that Book Buddies are essentials to a modern day Bookworm. I currently have 5 of Melanie’s Book Buddies but there are still many more that I want. I have 3 small Book Buddies (Foxes, Zombies and Cats & Crescents), one medium Book Buddy (Dragonflies with gold detailing) and a large Book Buddy (Skull and Crossbones). All of them are amazing and fit my book snugly while protecting them from severe damage. Melanie’s designs are all so beautiful and she has designs for any kind of bookworm. They’re well made and beautiful, you can tell she puts time and care into making each one and it’s usually very fast delivery. If you haven’t got a book buddy yet then go check out her shop! Psst, she also does Fiver Fridays nearly every week if you want a book buddy for a bargain!
3. Naomi Lord
Naomi is one of them shops I follow on Instagram and see all her updates and new products and wish I had the money to buy them. Okay her products aren’t dear at all but I usually need a good reason to buy things but then the opportunity came. I got a new laptop that I wanted to make my own by decorating it with stickers so of course, one of the first shops I thought of was Naomi’s. I decided to buy 4 stickers from her shop (Newt with Niffler and Bowtruckle, “I solemnly swear” quote, Gaston and a Wolf) to put on my laptop or wherever I please. Admittedly the stickers were bigger than I thought they would be (should have checked dimensions, I know) but that didn’t take away from how beautiful and well drawn they are. Honestly I’m jealous of Naomi’s skill, her designs are utterly amazing and I very much intend to buy some prints in the near future.
4. Strange The Bookmarks
Strange The Bookmarks is a fairly new shop but it’s already going strong. While the bookmarks (some of mine include a Sherlock Quote, “If in doubt go to the library” and ADSOM Blood Magic Commands) are larger than I thought they would be the designs are beautiful, as well as book based bookmarks she also has seasonal ones such as Halloween, Winter and Christmas bookmarks which all look great. Apparently they are also planning to introduce smaller bookmarks for those who don’t like the current size which I think is very good because it shows the owner thinks about her customers. Really beautiful bookmarks that are good quality and many brilliant designs.
5. Little Inklings Design
Little Inklings was the very first bookish shop I bought from way back in May. I was so glad I did because I got some amazingly beautiful bookmarks from it (some include, “Throw Me To The Wolves”, “Rattle The Stars”, “You Are All The Colors”, “Just One More Chapter” and “Don’t Let The Hard Days Win”). When I bought the bookmarks I got the 10 bookmark set deal (hence not writing them all down) and they are genuinely all beautiful. They’re brightly coloured with beautiful lettering and amazing quality. I’m so glad I bought them and one day I may venture back for more!
I hope you liked this Top 5 of my favourite Bookish Shops. I still have so many shops to get products from and so many products to get things like prints and totes and mugs and one day maybe I’ll have a bit of everything and I’ll have to make another Bookish Shop list but for now, these are most definitely my favourite bookish shops and I hope you all go and check them out for yourselves!
Until next time guys, happy reading!
