If anyone is into collage, book sculpture, journalmaking, etc: I just went to an antique store at 399 Mass Ave in Arlington that's going out of business and selling almost all of the books in the store for "$1 each or fill a grocery bag for only $5".  I was there looking for oversized books and didn't find many that were larger than 8.5"x11", but I saw a bunch of neat medium sized antique books and a stack of sheet music from the early 20th century ($1 per sheet music thingy).  There are also old postcards and photos.  I think that they're just going to throw away all the unsold books on Nov. 30 when they move out Sad

(I'm not the antique store people posting an ad!  I promise!  Just want to make sure people doing crafts with vintage paper know about this, and don't want to see pretty old things get thrown away.)
