Music makes the world go round

I've had great luck at the thrift stores lately finding gorgeously illustrated books in excellent condition.

Hit the jackpot last month when a retired music teacher dropped off her old textbooks.

Most of them are from the 1950s and 60s, and other than a little shelf wear on the covers, they look unused.

I've had fun looking through them and now have them listed in the "Vintage Books" section in my Etsy store. I hope someone enjoys them as much as I did.

At a consignment store, I found a few opera librettos, most in two languages and with great Art Nouveau cover illustrations.

They are in the "Vintage Ephemera" section.

In the book section, I also just listed "Dandelion Library" flip books (two books in one) with titles like Bambi, Beatrix Potter, Babar, Uncle Wiggly, Petunia, and Grimm Fairy Tales.

And under the new "Supplies and Howto Books" section, there are some retro cool knitting and crochet pattern books.
