Get Yourself a Present for Poe’s Birthday!

Edgar Allan Poe book purse from Etsy
Classic Gothic fashion!
We’re always up for a party here at Crime HQ, and today we have a great reason: it’s Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday! We’ll be filled with poe-tent content and doubtless more than a few poe-tents of gloom, but to start your day we offer up a few suggestions of things you might like to give yourself.  First, hit up Etsy and search Edgar Allan Poe.  There’s some poe-tentially excellent stuff there, like the Tales of Mystery and Imagination purse at left. But if purses aren’t your thing, they have Poe-themed jewelry, eReader cases, tee-shirts, mugs, even tiny little hand-bound, hand-crafted copies of Poe stories.

Quoth the ravens…never enough cupcakes!
And then there are the goodies. No party would be complete without casks of poe-tions, brought up from dark and damp dungeons. And cupcakes.  There must be cupcakes. Preferably with ravens and Poe’s face upon them!

So what are your plans for this mysterious day?

    That purse is excellent and a Poe party would make a great book club meeting.
