Vintage Kid's Books: 60s meets 70s

This is a super charming little book. I actually thought it was from the 70s because the style is a little more crisp and angular than the more rounded shapes in my other vintage kid's books—but it was produced in 1963. I love the little girls with their kerchiefs!

  3. Hello Alex

    I am your reader for a while, just wanted to say thank you for sharing all the pretty things :) and also I am currently undertaking my research for my Masters in Fashion business management, in order to take the effective respondents,could you please kindly to filling my survey for me. It only takes you 3 minutes!

    In order to thank you for the respondents, I have set up a £50 Amazon Voucher prize for one lucky winner. Only the completed questionnaires will be included in the draw, I will use random.org to pick the winner on July 20, and will e-mail the prize winner on the same date.

    the study is about " e-business: An investigation into consumer behavioral intention on Fashion community sites "
