Vintage ephemera is taking overy my Etsy shop...

One of the good things about not buying much new inventory in the winter is that all the the things that have been put on the back burner finally get to see the light of day! I've been having a great time listing my vintage ephemera on Etsy, despite my tush going numb from sitting and scanning for hours at a time!

Here are some of my favorites so far (of course I have a ton left to list, so stay tuned!):

Print from Trees At Night by Art Young - Fireworks - I listed a bunch of these, they are from 1927! Here's another cool one:

Print from Trees At Night by Art Young - Orchard Revel

Vintage Children's Book Art - I don't know about you, but I LOVE vintage children's books - especially the illustrations! And a lot of times even if the book is pretty much destroyed (kids destroy things? never!) the artwork can be saved... This book was chock full of amazing illustrations!

Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tale Prints - All I can say about these prints are *swoon* - I'm going to finish listing the rest today, so check back in later if you want to see them all!

Vintage Animal Anatomy Book Pages - Dog - I found an amazing book on animal anatomy, the drawings in them are so exacting and the pages are nice and big! All kinds of animals were included, check this out:

Vintage Animal Anatomy Book Pages - Flying Squirrel - Creepy!! Here's all the rest if you want to check them out...

Antique Garden Flowers Prints - Amaryllis - I found a book from 1926 all about flowers - the illustrations are just phenomenal! I think I got about twelve sets of two out of the book when it was all said and done, and each page is illustrated on both sides! I'll leave you with one more:

Aaggh! Mitzi, I wanted that mermaid print so much! If the sale doesn't go through, let me know!! You've got beautiful things listed!!!

Oh no! You were just a little too slow on the draw, someone bought it today! She already paid so it looks like a done deal too. :(

If you ever come across vintage Child Life magazines and want to put them in your etsy will you let me know? I'm trying to collect them and would love to buy more. Every time I bid on them on ebay I'm outbid beyond what I'm willing to pay. Going to check your etsy now!

Sure Leigh, no problem, I will keep an eye out for you! :)
