New Finds This Week Include First Bobbsey Twins Book

I'm always so thrilled to share with you some of my latest finds. Because each one is a like a rare treasure.

But I really have a nice find this week...

My Grandparents had an antique book store when I was a little girl. I remember my Grandmother gave me an old Bobbsey Twins book that was similar to this one below. I still have the exact book she gave to me...I will always cherish it!

Now the one below is the first in the series. It is called "The Bobbsey Twins or Merry Days Indoors and Out." Copyright 1904. It is one hundred and ten years old! And it is available on my site here.

Love those old covers!
The art work is nice enough to use it for display.
Anyway, I have more finds coming this week...
I'm starting to add items to my shop.
They are not all up on BellaRosaAntiques.com yet... things like
old grocery store price signs, an antique Pinocchio book,
a scrapbook of pre-1950's Valentines,
vintage jewelry, American Red Cross Box,
a celluloid Kewpie doll, and more!
But while I am working on new listings I
wanted to link up with Blog Shop over at
How Sweet the Sound for a fun way to
connect with other sellers and lovers of vintage.
Enjoy the day!

I love old books! I have several that have inscriptions in the front with dates as far back as the early 1900's and it amazes me to think someone sat and read that book so long ago!

Going to check out your shop:)
