I've recently aquired some oop vintage children's school books from 1960 and earlier.  Does these move at all on PBS?  They are in great shape.  I can't decide if I just want to store them and save them for my grandkid or post them.  Any ideas?

There's one way to find out...post them! :)  I honestly don't know if they move or not.  I know some people are into collecting vintage books, so perhaps there is a group of PBSers looking for that sort of thing.

Okay, yall talked me into it.  I'll start working on them.  No ISBN's so I have to do it the old fashioned way ;0)  I have lots of other vintage books as well.  Maybe I'll dig them out too.  I'll post in the Bazaar or probably put a link in my signature when I get them posted so those who are interested can check them out.

I personally would love to have some Ginn Basic Reders, I love vintage children's books! I think these were produced in the 1950's.

I love vintage books, and I'd have to say they go quickly enough.  By the time I notice people's advertisements the books are usually already gone lol.

Congrats on becoming the latest MoM!!!

I'd be very interested. I'm always on the lookout for a few from my childhood!  You wouldn't  have a book titled " The Boy Who Ate Flowers" by Nancy Sherman and Nancy Carrol, would you???

I've posted a couple and they've gone, now I do still have one music book, but the other music book, and a couple history books went. It's not like a lot of that kind of stuff changes too much :)
