Nana's Book Show

For the first time in many years, my Nana participated in a book show.  She has always been a book enthusiast and very early on this turned into a business where she sells antique and out-of-print books. She used to have a little book shop in town, but as I was growing up, she sold most of her books by appointment, on the internet and at various book shows. I have so many wonderful memories tagging along with Nana on her various book-finding and book-selling trips and helping to man the booths so I couldn't pass up a chance to visit her back in her old haunts... 
So if you are ever looking for an old, out-of-print book, she's the one to ask! She specializes in children's books, so if you've always wanted to find that book you used to read as a kid, send her a note and she'll probably be able to find it for you. (You can email her at  


  1. That looks like lots of fun! I will have to try to make it to one sometime.

  2. What an interesting business! I bet your Nana makes a lot of people happy as they reconnect with their childhood. Left edge of third pic down has Little Black Sambo - one of my childhood books that has since been deemed Politically Incorrect!

  3. Jandy-Bee (that name makes me smile every time...) - my Nana loves Little Black Sambo and it seems that a lot of people have very fond memories of those books!
