Friends of the Seattle Public Library Book Sale





The Seattle Public library has a book sale twice a year. It is wonderful and not to be missed! It is held in an old airplane hanger and it is filled to the brim with books, all kinds of books. I just love going to it and I almost forgot about it yesterday! Most books are $1.00. I bought these Children's books for the wonderful illustrations. I also got some old 1930's engineering books I can cut up for my collages. I can't wait to go back in the fall. I wish I could show you some of the insides of these books, but I think its against copyrite laws. I love the book by Giselle Potter. I researched her on Amazon and found more books illustrated by her. Now I have ordered two more. Books are so addicting!
