As promised, I’m dedicating some posts to all the goings on in my Etsy vintage book shop. Because we all love vintage books, right!?
I’ve pretty much neglected my Esty shop for two months and didn’t add any stock or promote it in any way (who’s got time for that when there’s reading to be done), but I didn’t stop buying vintage books, of course! So when two of my items sold, it gave me a kick up the bum to get some more added this week.
I still have so many books to clean up, photograph and add, but I’m getting there slowly. I think I’ll add another five or so in the next few week and hopefully run a bank holiday sale at the end of May. Watch this space!
Anyway, here’s what’s happened since my last shop post.

Oddly enough, the only two books I actually managed to add in the last two months, were the two that sold, to the same customer. Yay!
This book just screams antique. It’s got the gold gilt lettering and ragged pages…and let’s not even get started on the smell!
I don’t know much about this book, other than what I read on Wiki (“a collection of private and open letters from an anonymous polemicist Junius, as well as other letters in-reply from people to whom Junius had written between 1769 and 1772”) so I’m hoping it will tickle someone’s fancy.
This is a lovely collection of Lowry’s oil and watercolour paintings.
Lowry was an English artist born in Stretford, Lancashire, famous for painting scenes of life in the industrial districts of North West England during the mid-20th century.
I’m sure someone will snap this up soon, it’s in great condition.
I’m not sure if this will be popular, but I love the pure 80s cover! I’m hoping with the new Star Wars film being a hot topic atm that people will be interested in the life of Carrie Fisher’s mum, no?
This book has had the most views and favourites over the last few months, but has yet to sell. C’mon people, it’s four books in one!
