On our thrift store hunt for a coffee table to fix up, I found this little gem for $2.49. It is a vintage book called "The Blue Fairy Book". I am not sure if this a first edition or not. It isn't marked with a date but an owner did inscribe on the front cover 1923.
loved the look of the book but the fairy story is what really sold me on it!
The book is a little beat up so I tied it up with some ribbons to keep the spine from being damaged further.
Here are a few other books I've jazzed up since they were damaged.
Sometimes the covers or spine are so damaged I can't save them so I have taken them off completely.
