i love those old exercise books.. is that what they were called.. all the different colours for different subjects.

Still find it heartbreaking starting a new note book - will always leave a few pages blank so I can come back to them.. I never do!

Too cute! It's like an on-the-street version of present and correct!

Lynne said...

I know - it's cute. Although I didn't ask her how much she was selling her exercise books for (you can get a very similar version at my local stationers.)She said she was starting a website too.

All things nice... said...

Go girl! That's someone with drive and I admire that. When I was younger I lived on a main street and use to set up a stall selling second hand items mostly books, all the money went to charity so the local police didn't move us on cos we were only kids doing something good, we made over 400 pounds at the time

All things nice...

I cant help but think she raided her school...

I have at least 4 of those blank big large blue hardblack science books from high school.......*looks shifty* im not admitting anything... but its really easy to attach a ribbon to the spine and use it as a cookbook......

I saw this girl selling her vintage stationery yesterday in Redchurch. I was late for a meeting, which was a pain, 'cause I'm sure I would buy something from her. Need to check next week to see if she is there again....
