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,
melissa in Corpus Christi and sometimes Austin

I don't know about dress patterns, but the main Half-Price books in Austin (on north Lamar) might have the children's books. That location has older books, including first-editions.

good luck!
