Saturday Finds

I spent yesterday doing my favorite thing - looking for great vintage finds!  Here is just a sampling of what I came back with:
Books - tons and tons of books!  Two giant box fulls to be exact! Lots of children's books that will become ephemera packs in my shop!
12 large circus souvenir books from the 70s/80s.  Great circus images - still not sure what I am going to do with these!
And my favorite - a stack of tobacco felt flags.  I don't know much about these other than they were given out in the early 1900s to promote cigarettes.

I also picked up a few travel guides and a huge stack of postcards.  I have already posted a bunch of postcards and look for the other items to pop up in my Etsy shop soon!

where do you shop for your vintage books? I am in BC and usually shop at Salvation Army, Value Village and local hospital and charity thrift stores but vintage books like these are hard to find. Jealous LOL
