Vintage Books

• 24 May 2010























One of the gems I picked up at a flea market outside Paris a few weeks ago. Five minutes after we arrived I spotted it. I tried to negotiate with the vendor a little (he gave in a little, but not too much), then walked away only to find myself picking it up a couple minutes later. I just knew I'd be sad if I didn't leave with it. The cover is stunning in both color and design and the inside is actually in excellent shape too. What a find! This is how I get my thrills people :)

What are some of your favorite sources for vintage books? Have you ever seen the blog, "Vintage Kids' Books My Kid Loves"? It's a fun resource...you should take a peek. Also, Etsy offers a plethora of vintage books. Go ahead, I dare you to go through all 24,637 options and not add a couple to your cart!

I've had great luck at Estate Sales in the SF Bay Area. Are they popular in Utah?

My next door neighbor offered me unlimited choice of 100s (yes, really!) of vintage books. Most of the ones I took are old french textbooks and children's primers! What a find! I am listing several new binders and journals made from travel ephemera this summer in my etsy shop...Hope you can visit!
