Love My New (OLD) Book

The Golden Book Encyclopedia * Book 6 * Erosion to Geysers, 1959

Why of why, when I google this book, are the value of this book go from a high of $68.84 to a low of $4.92?? My book doesn’t have its spine anymore, so I feel OK about cutting it up. But I certainly wouldn’t want to cut up a $68 book. Speaking of that, I saw an incredible book at Goodwill yesterday: Rimskittle, 1926. They were asking $25 for it, crazy expensive for Goodwill, but on googling it, I saw it could go for quite a bit higher. The cover was not in good shape, and I am tired of putting money into junky things, so I am not going to buy it. But the pictures are excellent! I would love to frame them! The colors are brillant and the illustrations are as sweet as can be.

About Gotcha Cha Cha

Hello, I am making this blog to complement my store on Etsy. I sell "found" art and lovely illustrations from unusable vintage books. I also love my 2 cats (Lupe and Cha Cha, hence the inspiration for the store/blog name) and one dog (Daisy a beagle), not to mention my 2 school age daughters, and my husband who can draw anything and does that for a living.
