Book Art piece for sale – A unique decoration for a bibliophile

Title of this piece is “Table of Contents”by Lois Perkins

This is a one-of-a-kind piece of book-art for the booklover, bookstore, library or?? You name it. It really looks great on a bookshelf or a mantle.

It’s on a heavy oak base; this features an old book that has been reinvented or turned into a bird’s nest of interesting collected bits and pieces of history. There are old photos, feathers, egg, letter, stamped envelope, sheet music, dice. Red cloth binding wrapped gently with a black crepe ribbon.

The display card has a price on it of $125. I’m asking $50

House for sale - complete with family and kitchen appliances. what a deal!


Victorian Dollhouse kit + miniature furniture + ceramic doll family!

We are preparing to move in the next few months and trying to downsize our collection of *stuff* as George Carlin says…. This is a dollhouse kit I have had for a long time, I have been the only owner, it was assembled (body, windows, staircase only without embellishments) ONCE and then I disassembled it and put it in a box where it’s been stored for years. This item is ready to be re-assembled and painted the colors of your choosing, decorated and designed the way you like. It’s in good condition, I don’t see any issues with the structure as it hasn’t been handled or moved in a long time. I have the instruction/assembly manual, roof shingles and everything that came with it basically. This might be a fun summer project for someone :-)

This is a wonderful little house for the new collector. Features include silk-screened windows, a quaint front porch, and four ample rooms. Gingerbread trim on ridge and roof make this cottage especially appealing.  Set-up dimensions: 18" W x 13" D x 23 ½" H

In addition I am adding some miniature furnishing and things I purchased separately:

A kitchen sink, stove and refrigerator
A bathroom sink
Armoir
Rolltop desk
Fountain
Christmas Tree
Christmas wreath set
Pots and Pans set
4 piece Victorian porcelain dollhouse family set (still in the box)

PRICE: $45.00
