Etsy Pride: All Things Dorian Gray


Oscar Wilde is a quintessential queer author - and one I just love - and his book The Picture of Dorian Gray is one of those books that people assume had queer characters. It was illegal at the time to be gay, so it's not stated outright, but I agree. I think that's what Wilde was going for with some of the characters. Therefore, for today's Etsy Pride, I'm going to share some Dorian Gray items I found on Etsy!


The Picture of Dorian Gray Scarf - buy here

$39.00

From Shop UniversalZone

I love scarfs, so having one featuring one of my favorite books would be amazing!


The Picture of Dorian Gray Book Matches- buy here

$3.00

From Shop HereForevermore

Candles are fantastic, and it's officially candle season! These would make a great stocking stuffer or party favor!


Dorian Gray Writing Gloves - buy here

$26.00

From Shop Storiarts

How cool are these? I'd love some writing gloves as my hands are often cold!


The Picture of Dorian Gray Checkbook Cover- buy here

$9.95

From Shop Time2BeHappy

This is so cool! I've never thought about getting a cool checkbook cover, but I like it!


The Picture of Dorian Gray Floating Quote - buy here

$34 or $44 (two sizes)

From Shop BurntBranch

This might be my favorite item here! I love how cool the floating quote looks. If I had my own house, I'd get more than one quote and have them in various rooms. One day!

What a beautiful scarf! And I don't even use matches but I just love that little matchbox. And I love that quote, but honestly there are so many thought-provoking quotes in this book!

I want every item on your list! I think you gave me some awesome ideas for what to get Belle for Christmas. Oscar Wilde's life story is sad because he was persecuted for possibly being gay while his books sold like crazy. If he were alive today he would get the accolades he really deserves for writing so well. He is a legend.
