A few days ago, I happened upon the website for a local consignment shop called Abode. Right away I thought, "I have to check this place out." Although I would of loved to have walked away with a few more treasures, I was lucky enough to pick up these.
wood antique letterpress letters from Abode
I seem to have a weakness for the letterpress (owning a small Excelsior - pictured above). I dream of owning a larger press someday (if you or someone you know owns a larger letterpress, and would like to find a new home for it, please let me know).
After the consignment shop, I headed to a local thrift store. I am not normally a thrift store shopper, but I really wanted to find some old books to add to my library. I did find two, one of which I am pretty excited about.
A Book of Golden Deeds (1905)
Printed in 1905, this book is still in such beautiful condition. I am so lucky to have found such a great buy (just a $1). I love the illustrations on the title page.
