Hi guys, I’ve decided to celebrate the Bank Holiday by having a sale in my Etsy Store.
I’ve been busy adding new stock (and continue to do so over the weekend) and working on a range of handmade gifts to sell at a later date too. I’m currently in ‘perfecting’ mode as I don’t want to sell anything that isn’t the highest quality!
You can get 30% Off anything in store until the end of Tuesday 1st September. Simply use the code L1P5YY30 at checkout.
Here’s what’s been going on since my last post, two weeks ago…
Added to the shelves
Click on the book titles to view in store.
Ghosts and Two Other Plays (1949) – Henrik Ibsen
Scottish Scenes Drinking Set (1950/60s)
OK so it’s not a book, but look how awesome these little whisky/shot glasses are. So kitsch!
What Katy Did at School ~ Susan Coolidge (1920s)
I’m so glad this has gone to a good home!
About the Shop
I opened the shop because I love nothing more than scouring second-hand bookshops, markets and car-boot sales for vintage books. I love the way they look, the way they smell and the way you can imagine the history of them.
I can’t however keep buying books indefinitely. I have limited space, and limited funds, and therefore I opened this shop in order to generate a bit of a return in order to carry on doing what I love – buying books! And the way I look at it, if they don’t sell I get to keep them – DOUBLE WIN!
One of my favourite things in the world is scouring second-hand bookshops, charity shops, book fayres, and car boot sales for beautiful old books. So I decided that the only way I can continue this hobby is to start selling some of them (so I can buy more – of course), SOB.
Just three years after opening an Etsy account (that’s how long it’s taken me to convince myself to part with these books – LOL), I’ve finally added some stock to my shelves. I’d love it if you’d come take a look – if not just to browse.

I’ll be steadily adding more books (I have so many!) and will be posting shop-related posts on Saturdays when new stock makes the journey from cupboard to virtual shelf!
I don’t want people to think this is just a money-making scheme, I genuinely love the books I’m selling. And I like browsing, and finding hidden gems more than anything, so I thought you guys might like to see the books I’ve found over the years and continue to dig out – I’m not trying to convince you to buy them!
Here’s what my shop looks like at the moment – I’m really pleased I’ve managed to sell two books so far, in the run-up to Christmas.
