I'm sure you know how hard it is to sell parts of your collections?
I've recently come to the conclusion that with a baby on the way I will need to let a lot of things go.
I'm not thrilled about it as I've spent years collecting my goodies but basically we don't have the space for them anymore.
So I started with books.
Pretty photo books.
Hard to find, only on YJA books.
So get ready for some lovelies!
Right now I'll just be selling them privately through my Flickr and blog accounts to save on fees but if I have trouble moving things I'll list them on eBay.
( I realise some people feel more confident buying on eBay and I totally understand that too so they will eventually be for sale there.)
Of course, there's always Paypal's protection policy should something go wrong ( lost in post etc) but knock on wood that hasn't happened to me yet.

Is slightly creased but still would look really nice if framed and hung.

So head over to my Flickr and have a browse. Once I have a hard chat with myself more things will be for sale so make an offer, the worse I can say is "it's not for sale at this point in time" but you never know.
Thanks for looking!
