When I first launched Thrift-ola in 2011 I really enjoyed selling vintage annuals, art ‘n craft books and magazines but along the way Royal Mail’s fees made postage for such heavy items too expensive. However, they have recently introduced a new ‘small packet’ mailing option which means the postage costs are now ok again so the Books ‘n’ Zines collection is back in business!
Here’s a little peek at some of the vintage titles I have in the shop…
Organise a crafternoon with your pals and let this 1980s book inspire your projects from pom pom cat making to owl picture felt making. The perfect book for crafty beginners – What can I do today?
You never need buy presents for loved ones again… you can make them! Craft the night away with this big 80s Book of Presents and whip up knitted toys, customised tote bags, owl wall hangings and more.
Make tea time fun time with this awesome huge 1970s super fun cookery book. It says it’s for children but hey who wouldn’t want a Dougal Dog birthday cake? Learn recipes for sweets that grandmother used to make and inject some fun into lunchtime snacks with The Children’s Cookery Book.
