Lovely finds

I was trawling through bins at the Goodwill last weekend when I came across a whole stack of sweet, great condition vintage children's books. They are so sweet! I've got quite a collection now and am finding a lot of great titles in the local thrift stores.

I keep telling Pappa Starbucks that I will sell them on etsy but once I get them home I always find excuses not to.

Excuses like how sweet is this!!? and oops, this one is a little scuffed up! and well..I don't know how to price them...

This last one, the Shopping Book? It is SO stinkin' cute! It has the best illustrations I've seen in a while, I love it!

Oh, I love vintage story books so! It's a bit of a thrill still to find ones in good condition for inexpensive prices simply because I know how much love they will get around here.
What's your favorite children's book?


  1. oh, how sweet!! i love them. I remember a little Golden Book that I loved as a child about a little girl pretending to be a mommy. It was so sweet. I wish I could remember the name of it!
    great vintage finds!

  2. Thanks for the comment! I could never be a serious collector but with a young daughter I just can't stop hoarding any book I find that I think she would love. Could the Golden Book you're talking about be this one? http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/0375848207/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_0?ie=UTF8&index=0http://www.amazon.com/Little-Mommy-Golden-Book/dp/0375848207

  3. What a fantastic collection. I can't wait until I have a child - what a great excuse to buy fantastic things like these :)



Spill it!
