Added Value: Things found in books part three

One of the additional pleasures of buying second-hand books is finding something interesting, sad or funny left behind by a previous owner.  People use all sorts of things as bookmarks (including bookmarks) and then forget about them.  I will be adding a new find each week.


Postcard by Bozz. with pull-down photo strip. Message reads - Here we are in sunny Nice. We left England last Wednesday and have hitch hiked to here where we are staying for three days. We have had a most interesting time and seen many places. The French are most kind and helpful. Sent to Potterne in Wiltshire on the14th June, 1960.

Found in Peter Pan and Wendy illustrated by Mabel Lucie Attwell
Book and postcard sold: thank you for your interest.

If you enjoy old bookmarks a visit to Forgotten Bookmarks is a must

How about you?  What do you use as a bookmark?  Have you ever found a lost bookmark?

    Hello Kathy
    I sometimes find things that are not quite such fun but prefer not to share those!
    Thanks for visiting.

  2. This is definitely my favorite of the three that you've posted so far. So cute.
