Book pages

An affordable way to get great art is to frame a great illustration from a beloved book. I do it in my home and some pictures I have had up for years.

My store was started as a way to recycle, reuse beautiful old book illustrations from books that were damaged and unusable.

I had been framing them myself, but haven’t found a way to make that pay for itself, so now I mostly offer up the page, from a beautiful, damaged book, that you can frame yourself. It’s inexpensive and you can customize it.

Going Vintage

I have been stockpiling many treasures from my adventure shopping trips and wanted to add them to the store. Here are a few I just put up. Nothing here is worth a million dollars, but I’m not selling them for very much. These items are things that can help personalize a room. They have character and style and are unique. I love Target and Ikea and the other big stores, but you also need to inject something personal and distinctive. The puzzle has great graphics, and is in a sealed box. That would look cool in a bookcase. For the scissor fanatic collectors here are a pair, almost mint, in box. The globe looks distinguished in an office, and this puzzle would look super cute in a kids room. As would the tea set. I don’t think anything is listed over $10. More things to come, so check out my store if you are interested:

Behind the Scenes

Behind the scenes of the brain factory here at GotchaChaCha. First I am showing off my new soft light boxes, which hopefully will make my product photo’s look better.

Then you see a table of the journals I have put together in  search of ways to utilize old books. Nothing quite work, sadly. It has been a while since I have looked at them, so I wanted to see what I had done with fresh eyes. Back to the drawing board! Hope to get something figured out to put in the store.
