14 'Gilmore Girls' Items That Every True Fan Needs To Buy Before The Revival
Face it, you can barely contain your excitement for Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life , and, even though you’ve been mooching off your dad’s Netflix account for years, this obsession is probably starting to eat into your finances. Truth is, when Gilmore Girls debuted 16 years ago, there were only a few ways to identify members of the fandom, but now unofficial Gilmore Girls merch is as rampant as unsubstantiated Gilmore Girls revival theories. And I would know, because I write about both of those things extensively.
So what corners of the internet do you have to delve into to get those Team Jess earrings you’ve always wanted? (Or OK, the earrings that support those other two losers, too?) You just do a deep dive to Etsy, my dear. There’s all sorts of strange shirts, wall decorations, and coffee containers that should solidify your status as an honorary member of Stars Hollow. And, in interest of time-saving, I rounded up some choice picks that you could get your hands on right now (or in 2 – 5 days depending on where the item is being shipped, whatever).
Scroll down for some sweet Gilmore Girls swag that should get you even more amped for the reboot.
