I think we all have that one television show-even if we don’t admit it-that defined our teenage years. For me, it was One Tree Hill. In addition to providing hours of endless drama, the show introduced me to some of my favorite bands, one of my first fictional guy crushes (looking at you, Lucas Scott), and the first female characters I was really able to relate to. The first four seasons ran through all the years of my high school experience, so, in some ways, it kind of feels like I grew up alongside these characters. I even visited Wilmington, NC a few years ago where the show was filmed. (It was pretty epic to see Peyton’s iconic Comet in the parking lot and getting to tour the Lucas’ house and Red Red Bedroom Records.)
At 25, One Tree Hill still holds a special place in my heart. When I’m feeling nostalgic, I pop in a DVD or two and binge watch my favorite episodes. I still listen and follow many of the bands featured on the show, ask myself what would Brooke and Peyton do/wear, and, yes, I still swoon over Lucas Scott.
For my fellow One Tree Hill fans, here are some of my favorite Etsy finds inspired by the Tree Hill gang.
1. Keith Scott Body Shop Hoodie
This hoodie is an essential Tree Hill fashion staple.
2. Haley’s Cracker Jack Box Bracelet
Who needs diamonds? In Tree Hill, nothing says love like a bracelet from a Cracker Jack box.
3. “Every song ends, but is that any reason not to enjoy the music?” Quote Bracelet
This bracelet one of my favorite Peyton Sawyer quotes of all time.
4. An Unkindness of Ravens by Lucas Scott Book Locket
I still want to read Lucas’ novel, and I think One Tree Hill missed a big opportunity by not printing it. (Fun fact: The book’s title was the show’s original name.)
5. Red Bedroom Records Wall Sign
Music was such a huge part of the One Tree Hill fabric, especially in Peyton’s journey, so it’s no surprise that Peyton ended up starting her own record label.
6. One Tree Hill “You Saved Me” Cosmetic Collection
This Brooke Davis approved collection inspired by One Tree Hill and the relationship of Peyton and Lucas includes six eyeshadows (Keith Scott, Comet, Sawyer’s Heart, Unkindness of Ravens, Game and Rivercourt), one highlighting powder in Sunrise, and one lipstick in Peyton.
