literacy loot meme

Hello, Literacy Lovers! I don’t know about you, but I love finding fun and unique bookish items to ooh and ahh over, and every once in awhile, buy for school or home. I am not afraid to admit that I’m also a sucker for a fun bookish t-shirt to represent my love of reading and writing. I’ve missed these posts, so I thought I would start them up again. Enjoy! ūüôā

library due date tshirt

This cute t-shirt is from ShopJustWish on Etsy and is $19.95. There are a lot of variations and color choices of this tee and the site also lists some shoes and other clothing items (notebook paper onesies, anyone?) that are worth a look!

 

Literacy Loot For School:

This week’s post features a little bit of everything. I’ve been pinning away and favoriting on Etsy, so here’s this week’s literacy loot smorgasbord!

ABC bookend

Another cool bookend Рthis time from graphicspaceswood on Etsy. This wooden alphabet piece is $55 and the wall hanging alphabet linked n the description would make a great companion piece in a nursery.

I’m loving this $25.00 t-shirt from Skreened.¬†I’m sure there are many husbands out there that would agree that being married to a teacher is one wild ride!

phone cover

This $18 Penguin Books phone cover from gleeksheeksleek is pretty hilarious. This site has a lot of stuff for geeks worth checking out, like cool Harry Potter signs, a Wicked phone cover and more.

read bracelet

ALikelyStory is an Etsy store that caters to all literacy lovers! This bracelet, which uses replicas of old fashion typewriter keys is listed at $27.95, and would be a great gift for bibliophiles. The Bookish Charm Bracelet is worth checking out too!

My favorite item of the week…

fictional button

The carboncrusader store on Etsy has some really cool items, and I love this $2 button. What a fun and inexpensive gift for coworkers. I know a few students that would love to get their hands on this too!

Happy reading and shopping!

Hello, literacy lovers! I’m back from our family road trip and the realization of just how many weeks there are before you know what starts is setting in. Meanwhile, I’ve been avoiding my to do lists and looking around for some literacy loot to share. I think I’ve found this week’s winners.

These adorable little “I Love Books” buttons are from PemberleyPond on Etsy.com. Listed at $3.41 for one button. Larger quantities available. Click on the picture to visit this cute little literacy minded shop!

These simple little buttons are too cute not to be shared. While they might be a little pricey, PemberleyPond is an Etsy store not to be missed. They have bookmarks, cards, and VERY COOL literacy prints. Especially if you are a Jane Austen fan!

Spend some time on Society 6’s website and you’ll definitely find something that catches your eye. This shirt is listed for $18.99, and you can also get this printed on a tote bag, card, iPhone case, canvas print, etc.

So this shirt pretty much sums up my summer, and I’ll bet I’m not alone! ¬†I like Society 6’s website because when you find something you like, you can printed on a variety of items. They also have a ton of ¬†t-shirt colors to choose from. The search feature is pretty dangerous.

These classic handmade designed signs might look great on any wall in your home or classroom. What initially drew me to these pieces were the 20 different color options. Lots of choices to check out! Sunshine and Poppy look very cute! The script read sign is $38 and the regular style is $42. There are other cool items in the store, like a wooden robot and (gasp) a NERD SIGN! Need I say more?
