Op-shop beauties




I'm alwyas on the look out for gorgeous vintage children's book at my local op-shops or (as you may call them on the other side of the world), thrift stores.

I always end up buying them, and some I just cannot bring myself to chop in to.
These two are an example of that, they're just too cute and in such great condtition for their age.









You can find my paper tags in my second etsy store koot keep checking back for new listings.
