Step back in time.....
My sister rang me Saturday night to let me know about an 'old and rare' book sale that she spotted in the local newspaper...Im so glad she did as I missed this annual book fair last year and sulked for days!!!
Its organised by a local senior citezns club and all proceeds go to charity so all for a good cause....
So Sunday morning I drove overthere and headed straight for the 'Children's books' section - so many great bargains!
Not many people were interested in these so all the better for me....most books were 0.50 cents to $1.00 each!! (Squeal!!!!) I was in complete book heaven!
Such beautiful illustrations....
Little swans from 'Swan Lake'
'Wizard of Oz' by L. Frank Baum and illustrated by Maraja 1958
(0.50cents!!! oh my.....)
also illustrated by Maraja is 'The Splendour book of Ballet' by Shiley Goulden 1962
Humpty is from 'Mother Goose Rhymes' , 1950 and Illustrated by Eulalie
A-B-C book 1966
From 'The Bells of London Town' illustrated by Molly B Thomson
I got 6 of her books for $1.00!! Im going to google some of these illustrators as I dont know much about them!
I'll also be scanning the images and adding to the Flickr group Vintage Children's books
Next week there is a 'damaged and old' book sale - Im SO there! I hope to find images for collage craft!
