Shakespeare Gear

Are you the type to wear your heart on your sleeve? If so, you'll love today's Shirt.Woot t-shirt, an A-Z image of Shakespearean characters ($10). Or, try this charm bracelet on Etsy, with the names of several plays hand-stamped in brass ($44.95).

Another of my favorite Etsy finds is this origami Christmas ornament, created from the pages of King Lear ($25).

With the exception of items that say "To thine own self be true," which I find annoying, I'm a huge sucker for this kind of Shakespeare merchandise. My library is home to a stuffed Shakespeare, with his companion Queen Elizabeth, a bobble-head Shakespeare, and a large Shakespeare bust. I also have half a dozen sets of antique Shakespeare bookends; my favorite feature the Tempest quote, "My library was dukedom large enough."

Do you have a favorite Shakespeare tchotchke? If so, send us a photo! Shall we give a prize for the tackiest one?
