Good Books are like Good Friends

I went to the book store a few days ago and bought a few books I've been dying to own for some time.
I just love books. Like good vintage clothes, I can never seem to get rid of them. I love the way they smell. I love the look of a beautiful coffee table book. Books are calming. *Sigh*

They are lovely though. I bought the newest edition of Flea Market Style (this is actually a magazine, but who's counting). You know how much I love decorating.
I also bought The Fashion File. Which is the styling book by the costume designer of Mad Men, Janie Bryant (did you know she was also the costume designer on Deadwood? Love her!). I've already read it cover to cover and I bought it two days ago.
And finally, I bought Vintage Handbags by Marnie Fogg. This has been on my radar for a while since I already own Vintage Fashion and Vintage Shoes.

Have you bought any good vintage related books recently? Or, have you bought any of these books? What did you think of them? I'd love to know!



  1. Vintage Shoes is my bedtime reading at the moment :) I have the others ones too, it was a birthday present last year from Mr D x

  2. just found your blog not too long ago, enjoying it, nice post!
    I never heard of that magazine before, will have to look for it.
    I buy unloved vintage books all the time so I can take scissors to them, for me they are a great source of craft materials

  3. How much fun! You made my teeth long and I'm drooling with these beautiful shopping!

  4. Penny - LOVE Vintage Shoes! The Boy bought me my copy last year for Christmas.

    Periwinkle - Welcome!! I'm pretty sure Flea Market Style is only available in North America. But I believe you can buy it online through their blog (follow the link!)

    Rosy - lol! I'm a bit of a shopaholic...
