If you’re anything like me, Harry Potter has probably been a part of your bookish existence for quite awhile. For me, it’s been a decade since I first picked up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and fell in love with Rowling’s imaginative tale of whimsy, magic, darkness, heroism and pumpkin juice. So in honor of ten years, this month’s Etsy Fangirl post features handmade favorites inspired by Harry, Dumbledore & Co.
So, pull out your handy dandy Marauder’s Map, and let’s get started…
Speaking of solemnly swearing to be up to no good… this bracelet lies. It’s actually fantastic, and up to so, so much good.
I featured this Etsy shop on my Tenth Doctor Etsy post as well, but I couldn’t resist showcasing them again, because… well, I’m sure you can work out why. (!!!!) Gorgeous artwork + Paper Dolls = Brilliant.
Harry, Ron & Hermione have never been quite so adorable. Or squishable. Or huggable. I’m about two seconds from going all Elmyra Duff on them.
Because bow ties (of any fandom) are cooool.
Who’s your favorite wizard? These shirts say it all.
Forget chocolate frogs and Bertie Botts! Cookie stamps. Cookie Stamps are where it’s at!
Possibly the most adorable trio of fridge magnets in the history of fridge magnets.
“Accio Coffee!” Has a better (or more necessary) spell ever been cast? I think not.
“I love you like Snape loved Lily?!” <has a fangirl heart attack from all the feels> I
want, crave, need that bracelet. Actually, I need all three of these things. Even the tie pin thingee, and I don’t even own a tie.
I need an entire Christmas tree of these bookish ornaments…. although I might be tempted to stand around reading my tree. Or dig out my HP books and have a Book 1-7 marathon by the glow of Christmas tree lights. Not a bad way to spend the holidays in my opinion.
For all your Harry Potter scrapbooking needs. Seriously, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a more comprehensive set of scrapbooking supplies for any kind of theme… ever. You want it? It would appear that they have it.
Start ’em young, I always say.
Coasters for the Potter-obsessed.
Now you can have your very own set of Wizard’s Chess! Except, you know, you have to move your own pieces. And do your own smashing. And it’s much cuter… and not nearly as violent. So nothing like Wizard’s Chess, actually.
Illuminating, in so many ways. And also… very cool looking.
These amazing prints are welcome to Geek My Wall, anytime. Brilliant.
And of course, we must conclude our little jaunt through Etsy’s Potterverse with a spot of tea. One for each Hogwart’s House, in fact. And if we’re choosing Houses based on tea preferences, I think I’d be quite definitely be a Ravenclaw.
