Hello out there!
I'm looking for places to shop for vintage (mid century) childrens and youth hardback books and dress patterns.  Anyone know of a good place to shop for such items?

Goodwill Blue Hanger used to be great for old books but now they don't sell them.  Sad

Suggestions?

xxoo,

Hello friends!

Looks like it has been a while since anyone posted a request for folks in the Corpus area to meet up.

I just moved here and would love to gather a little group of crafters.  I would be happy to take responsibility for organizing things.

COME ON!  WE CAN DO THIS!!

Hi Everyone,
I thought I would post the images of the items I sent to my swap partner.  It was my first swap and I had SO MUCH fun.  I'd love any feedback from you guys on what you think of the goodies.  Number 4 was most exciting to do - my first machine stitched note card set using Amy Butler scrapbook paper and kraft paper cards and envelopes.  Thanks in advance for any encouragement!!!









Oh, and here is the list of items!
1) chunky: set of chipboard pieces
2) over 20: sheets of origami paper
3) typography: set of rub on letters
4) botanical: machine stitched Amy Butler paper flower cards (handmade by me)
5) postal: package of vintage airmail stationery
6) photograph: a stack of old photographs I got in an ebay ephemera lot
7) label: metal rimmed tags
 Cool whimsical: hand made fairy stickers cut from an old calendar
9) found: paint sample cards
10) local: Texas map
11) sharp: punch out paper flowers (they have sharp corners!)
12) vintage: old knitting project booklet
13) transportation: vintage flash cards of cars and vintage railroad punch tickets/cards
14) altered: cool old fairy pop up illustrations calendar made into dividers for a binder
15) senders choice: vintage heavy duty bingo card with sliding windows

Here is the very fun and thoughtful package from TAOJ:

chunky = wood puzzle
over 20 = cupcake felt pieces
typography = scrapworks kit
botanical = flower patch
postal = Anne of Green Gables stamps
photograph = frame
label = tag from jeans
whimsical = Betty Boop tag
found = fortune from a cookie
local = Big Brothers/Big Sisters stickers
sharp = scissors
vintage = children's book
transportation = map of Cavendish
altered = clipboard
choice = journal

In an email exchange, I mentioned that I was a fan of Anne of Green Gables books, so TAOJ made a special effort to find things that she knew I would like.  Thank you so much Susanne!

I'm in the same boat and soooo sad about it.  I just bought a chunk of screens and bulbs on ebay.  A few sellers seem to have lots in stock, and the prices were reasonable.  They were "buy it now" deals, and arrived by fedex without a huge shipping fee.  Good luck and let's all have nightly "please-bring-back-the-gocco" prayers.
