Wednesday To-Do -- Vintage Children's Books

Good morning!

I've been moving slow with a Spring cold, but am looking ahead to a productive day.

My plans for the day are simple:

  • List 10 vintage children's books
  • eBay packing - so far just 3 packages (craft book, vintage cookbook, and vintage playing cards)

Vintage Dachshund Playing Cards

Have I mentioned how much I love vintage single swap playing cards featuring dogs?   The illustrations and photos are so sweet, they look great framed, and they make a thoughtful gift tucked inside a greeting card.  My favorites are usually 1950's to 1960's vintage -- I love that style of illustrations and photos.  (This is true of children's book illustrations and magazine ads for me too!)   These cute playing cards feature Dachshunds -- and I have more of them at Birdhouse Books.

Happy Monday, with Lots To-Do

Happy Monday, eBay friends!

Busy day ahead here.  I'll give you the "to list" and then you can get another cup of coffee and join me in feeling tired just reading this!!

  1. Import items to Addoway and Bonanza (this is actually pretty quick and easy!).
  2. Listings - 10 vintage children's books today.  I have some goodies, and they are already photographed!
  3. Packing - so far one vintage Bucilla craft kit and many packets of vintage cards.
  4. (Not eBay related, but a project nonetheless!)  Change closets.  I live in a 1947 home, with teeny, tiny little closets.   Changing them twice a year is quite a production.  I need my Spring/Summer clothes!

Wishing you a great day with lots of vintage finds!

To list today:  vintage children's book The Littlest Angel by Charles Tazewell (early edition)
