If you love collectibles, there's a very good chance you're interested in the coffee table type of book that depicts just about anything vintage that you'd want to collect.
This is my stack - I probably could have taken a better picture, but their home is downstairs on the book shelf and I wasn't carrying all those up the stairs. I love this type of book! They're just fun to look at and great for quick reference.
This is my newest one to add to the collection - it was under the tree! I haven't gone through the whole book yet, but I see lots of really neat pictures!
This book is just chock full of wonderful collectibles.
I wouldn't mind to come upon these spreaders - how cute are they?
While I'm on the topic of these books - how about the ones that are entirely Christmas? I have a stack of those too.
Santa was real good to me this year - he brought me some new Christmas books.. I really wanted the Kitschmasland one, there's just so much vintage Christmas in there - I even saw some things that I have and a whole that that I want!!
Here's a couple of Christmas facts from "Christmas Memories" - popular toys of 1900 included sleds(98 cents), dolls (89 cents), doll cradles (10 cents) and ice skates (49 cents). In 1946, Noma's Bubble Lites were introduced - becoming the world's best selling Christmas tree decorations! The aluminum Christmas tree was introduced in 1950 and we know those are collector's items now! This is a great little book - full of facts and pictures.
I want that Santa, I want that mail bag and I wouldn't mind having a couple of those angels. That's the trouble with these books, I always want stuff but I know there's not a hope of me ever finding much of it, it's still fun to look and dream though!! Do you like this type of book?
