Aurora Books

Whew. I'm finally back and falling back into my normal pace. We were in Wisconsin for two and half weeks, and it was glorious! Besides being beautiful and my favorite place in the world, Wisconsin is a treasure box of vintage goodies.

Five minutes from Marinette, WI, is Menominee, MI. They have one of the most lovely down towns! One of my favorite stores is Aurora Books. If there's a vintage or rare book you are hunting for, Aurora will probably have it.



This only half of the store!







I purchased these two vintage novels, as well as a book written by Bob Hope during WWII that he dedicated to the soldiers.







One of my favorite things about collecting old books is finding inscriptions and dates written inside:




I have so much more to share with you! More to come, plus a giveaway!
