Landon and I went to five tag sales yesterday. We didn’t even have to go far — they were all in our neighborhood.

He really scored: we bought a skateboard and a Playmobil truck for 50 cents each. I also bought him a ton of easy reading books and extra math test book. I like having those around for days he’s off from school, like today. A little homeschooling hasn’t ever hurt anyone.

I bought a few things for my booth at the Newburgh Vintage Emporium, including these vintage finds:


vintage finds: vintage children's books and stamp setI’m tempted to sell this stamp set, it would be perfect for my store, but this will come in handy for DIY projects.

Thanks so much for featuring me :-) I’ll be adding your button to my feature page. I love old children’s books and those look like something I would’ve had when I was little. Great find. Thanks again for the party and have a super week.

I’m so glad you linked up! I hop you will keep this party in mind and link up many more times.

You don’t plan on actually cutting the books apart, right? You are going to scan the pages and frame the copies, right? I love vintage children’s books, and have collected quite a few. Someone, unfortunately, cut parts of pages out. With today’s technology, please let readers know the vintage find does not need to be butchered in order to get the image to use for crafting or framing. Blessings from Port Huron, Michigan.

Hi Susie, I’m torn about cutting it up or framing whole pages. I am so reluctant to do it, but it wouldn’t feel right to make copies and frame them — the appeal would be to sell the original, vintage pages in my booth in the Emporium. I can’t just sell copies there.

I haven’t decided yet. I feel like the pages will actually be more enjoyed — and seen — as wall decor instead of in a closed book.

If I used this for decoupaging, I’d make copies.
