a novel idea

yesterday, i talked about my time at the vintage book fair
in soho where i purchased a bunch of books for a dollar each to add to my coffee table and living room collection >> pop by the full post here. so today, i'm sharing some of my finds!

other than the random soho bookfair, i find my literary decor at resale stores, thrift shops and vintage boutiques. i also sometimes get lucky in the sale sections at a neighborhood bookstore.
striking out at the stores? shop full sets of thrifted finds online via etsy at huckster haven! sets range in price but are all extremely affordable! here's some of my favorite sets! 
keep in mind that your books look best if you mix up your vintage books & match them with a few new reads! here are some splurge-worthy books from anthropologie & urban to get you started!
sometimes you can get luck enough to find an amazing book at a vintage store! i scored this glam one at a thrift store in the west village for $8, although i'm sure it's worth much more then that! coincidentally, it's one of the books kate spade uses in their corporate show room!


book worm? check out these goodies for the avid reader!
i hope you enjoyed this literary post, we'll get back to fashion tomorrow! but before you go, checkout my great gatsby book clutch, now on sale at katespade.com! cheers!
