Antique and Vintage Books

Four shelves, three books deep, vintage and antique... I collect old books that will never be torn apart, but I have repurposed many old books that were falling apart during more than 10 years of wreath-making for my Simple Joys Paperie shop. That translated into thousands of pages, and many days and weeks of wrist and elbow injuries from repetitive use. I don't make the wreaths anymore, except for the occasional special request, and it's time to pare down extensively.

These books range in date from the late 1800s to the mid 1900s. A very few are as new as the 1970s. Although most could still be read, all could be used for decorative purposes.

If you'd like to see what's available, visit my shop blog... this is where I list things until I have time to add them to my Etsy shop.

Thanks for visiting!
Take care and God bless,
