Happy bookstore finds: Kinfolk and Pooh...
Last week I went on a little used bookstore excursion. I needed to get out of the house and in some ways I needed to get my thoughts onto other things. Bookstores are one of the perfect places for me to go when I need to get out and about. When I am walking through a used bookstore I always want to run my fingers along the book spines as I walk past long rows of shelves. I feel giddy as I keep an eye out for new treasures. And words feel like my natural space.
On this particular book adventure I found a few marvelous items! The first was a Kinfolk magazine! It was half the price that they normally sell for. Now, I am more than happy to pay full prize because Kinfolk is amazing quality and beautiful. In fact, I would order every issue new! But, alas, I do not have much money to spend on such a thing and I am in college. One day I will buy a new copy, but in the mean time it was a dream come true to find a copy of Kinfolk to call my own.
The second marvelous find was a set of Winnie the Pooh books in the edition I had one day hoped to own. I was so excited to find it! I had to put back other purchases I had set aside, but it was completely worth it since it isn't every day I come across this set. Each book has a pretty fabric cover and the original dust jackets. The illustrations are beautiful! When I look at the map inside the cover of the books I can't help imagine myself truly in the hundred aker wood meandering on a whimsical adventure. (Winnie the Pooh is one of my all time favorites in case you were wondering.)
So, there you have my two happy bookstore finds!
