Every fall I’m reminded of the years when our now 25-year-old son started school with a new backpack filled with supplies. I unpacked a cardboard box recently, in fact, that contained some of his unused supplies: spiral notebooks, yellow Ticonderoga-brand pencils, and even a rather new-looking box of crayons. The memories are sweet, the time that we spend with our children too short. Our son was only 17 when he started college. However long the back-to-school years last, we hope that our children remember most the joy of learning, and that they carry this attitude forward with them to become life-long learners.

In that spirit, below is a treasury I curated on Etsy that includes some back-to-school themed products.

  1. A fun theme for a treasury! And fun colors.
    Even though it’s been many years since I was in school, I still get excited to see all the fresh new supplies in the stores 🙂
    Thanks for including my recipe book in your treasury!

  2. Ah yes, I remember the days of getting the school supplies — it seemed we always had to go store to store to store before finding the color of construction paper we were assigned!!
    Your treasury has all the memories wrapped up in one place! Thanks for including my apples!

  3. What a cheerful collection for the new school year! I still love school supplies.

  4. Love, love, love this treasury! All my grandkids will be back to school as of Tuesday — from kindergarten to college freshman! Great finds! Thank you for including my bicycle fabric-covered journal!
