Tamra So iconic! 😍 I like a ticking clock too, but now that I think of it I don‘t have one anymore. I‘d love a grandfather or cuckoo clock. 2w

DivineDiana Now I want a ticking clock! ❤️ 2w
CaitZ Those remind me of my childhood. My parents had the "Baby Ben". Now I just use my phone, maybe I need to find a real alarm clock 2w
Leftcoastzen @DivineDiana tick tock ! I‘m enjoying them . 2w
Leftcoastzen @CaitZ they do have a certain charm , got to remember to wind them. 2w
EvieBee Cute and I do too! I have a wall of clocks. I‘ve been on the hunt for those vintage travel clocks that fold into themselves. Fit in your palm? 2w
Leftcoastzen @EvieBee I know the kind. Don‘t see those much anymore. 2w
Leftcoastzen @britt_brooke cool ! They are fun to have around. 2w

Vansa Oh my God,your post transported me back to my childhood!Jill and the perfect pony by Ruby Ferguson was one of my favourite books as a kid,I didn't know at all that it was a continuation!I must get hold of this.Sounds so lovely.Why were there so many horse books for girls back then?!Horse riding is a fairly niche activity,I would assume!I loved all of them, though I've probably set eyes on a horse barely twice in my life😂 2mo
Vansa I would never have thought Jill had such a complicated backstory, she's such a competent horsewoman in Jill and the perfect pony! 2mo
johncadams @Vansa As fans of pony stories we are so used to riders who are already experienced. I always felt that Jill was more accessible than some of the more capable riders we see in other books. I am so glad that my post sparked your response. I love reviewing and this is why! 2mo
Vansa @johncadams very true! I really must get hold of this. 2mo

#fortheloveofbookmarks #vintage I think I missed my calling , should have been an archivist.These were all found in used books.Gautier was here in Phoenix, I don‘t know anyone who remembers it. Went thru the paper on microfilm, ads & articles in the 1960s about it.Bonanza Inn started in the 70s. Pickwick was legendary. Tagged author became a rep.,worked there ,Crown Books hired some from there during their Ca.expansion.Owner was a real character!

Ruthiella 😎 Very cool! 8mo

I went looking for #vintage bookmarks and got distracted by CAKE (the dessert not the band). While this one may have that oldie timey look, it was actually acquired fairly recently as a thank you from the local indie bookseller to all the patrons who bought stuff during the pandemic and kept them afloat.

I thought I had a for real vintage bookmark, but it may have been just a little TOO vintage and got culled. 😕

Susanita Or it could be stashed in a book and I‘m not gonna look through them again 8mo
