About meThanks for visiting!
Drop me a note and say hi! I'd love to hear from you.


I have a library accumulated from 31 years of collecting, as I have worked three bookstores over the years. I figure it will take me about a year or two to enter all the books into Library Thing, so my library is a work in progress.

The back story is that I worked under the table for beer and books at a used book shop when I was 15, so I accumulated quite a collection. I'm a long-time book collector, known for skipping meals in order to purchase a special book.

I created a Book Thread on a retro forum to offer my books to use for their research, book collecting or beauty tips. My thought was to post snippets of each book and additional related thoughts and reviews.

Each book in the thread has a published copyright date of 1950 or earlier. Due to site outages on the forum which lost some of my hard work, I moved my Book Reviews over to my Blog.

I have an old outdated blog, cataloging my tutorial and reference posts about antiques here. My blog is not current due to time restraints, but is still fun to read.

You can find me trading books on PaperbackSwap or BookMooch.

I have an online antique store and am selling off parts of my 30-year collection of old books, vintage clothing and antiques, so be sure to check that out too: Vintage Clothing Dreams

My daughter's library is located under the name: vintage_books_baby.

About my libraryI collect fashion, costume, scifi, fantasy and books about an earlier era so I can learn the culture.

My Judaica books go back to about the 1830's so I can study the typography. I'm still cataloging them, so I believe they only extend back to the 1860's so far on LibraryThing. I save books from the Ganeeza. :) Feel free to contact me about saving books from your Ganeeza so I can study them and provide them a loving home.

I look forward to hearing from you.
