Save Space On Your Shelves For These Amazing Space Bookends

We all know that bookends are awesome. We also all know that there’s often little space on the bookshelf for them. But I implore you to consider picking up spare bookcases in order to add some of these incredible space bookends to your shelves. Not only will that spread your books out, but it’ll make your books and shelves look even more out of this world (#SorryNotSorry).

Find below a collection of fun, unique space bookends. I have included everything from the planets to stars and then some. Some of these are limited-run or single-sale bookends, meaning that they might not be available when you click through. I’d suggest poking around with some of the words to describe the bookends (e.g. “crescent moon vintage book ends”) to pull similar or identical bookends from other sellers.
