New Goodness On Etsy - Vintage Book Advertising Posters!

Sometimes in this vintage flipping business, you buy stuff because you know other people will like it, even if you don't really like it yourself. Other times you buy stuff that you like, without much of an idea if other people will dig it as much as you do.

I scored a huge lot of vintage book advertising posters from the late 1970s and early 1980's - over 50 of them, actually. Tons of historical romance and historical fiction titles, plus a few horror, thriller, and sci-fi titles thrown in for good measure. My guess is they came out of an old bookstore - and I just love them. I've always been a fan of that era of book cover design, the typography and illustrations on them are retro perfect!

I had no idea if they would appeal to other people though - I mean, how many book nerds are out there that love old school romance novel covers? I know of a few people on Goodreads, but other than that I have no clue. I decided to jump on them anyway, and see what happens.

Luckily, I've already sold a couple - hopefully a good sign! Here are just a few of my favorite ones, click on over to check out the rest!
