Great Monday Give: The Funny Thing

A muchly much much more optimistic morning. I have to think the government will do the right thing over the next few months and alter this crazy law to make vintage kids' books legal again, so I don't expect to be out of business too too long. I've posted a ton of stuff in the Etsy store today with plans to post more in the next day or two. Again, the pre-85 books will stay up til midnight Friday and there is $3 flat rate shipping on all orders in the Continental US til then too. Saturday, I'll take all pre-85 books down and add a bunch printed during that golden '85 to '89 era I'll be focusing on just to keep the store up and running. Ha! (Surprising, I actually have more than you might think.)

That said, I have a gorgeous ex-library and like-new hardcover, plastic-covered copy of The Funny Thing by Wanda Gag. The book was printed in 2003, so it is guaranteed cootie-free. (I'm also going to look deeper into the "giving away" rules as if I can't sell the darn things, I'd at least love to be able to give them to you for free!) All you have to do to be entered to win is make a comment on this post before midnight, Feb. 22. A winner will be announced the following morning.

As for last week's give.... the winner is Celeste. Shoot me an e-mail at webe(at)soon(dot)com, and I'll get your awesome copy of Umbrella out to you ASAP.

Bye for now!
