I really like that there are so many possibilitys to buy good second hand books on the net now days.
Swedish Slöjdmagasinet have a lot of good second hand crafting books, I've bought several.
Do you have a favorite second hand books web store?



Amazing quilts at valasai79's photostream, via calle pompón.

I especially like the front page of the book entitled Virka. I'm studying textiles for a project, and that shows great texture!

What a beautiful collection! I have never used one of these online second hand web stores (unless you're counting e-bay) In the UK there are so many charity shops everywhere that you can often dig out some little gems here and there...

Oxfam website is good for second hand books: http://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop/second-hand-books

These books look fantastic, Elisabeth... Great finds! I wish I did have a second-hand webshop so I'll be keen to see what other comments are left for English ones :) Thanks for this. K

naae, jag har ingen favvis-loppis-antikvariat-bokaffär på näte. men det här va fint, du hade ju bra tips dära. jag blir så himla glad över att fysiska loppisar (såattsäga) har så mycke fina böcker så billigt dock. de behöver inte va bra, man har råd att chansa. :D

Roligt med gamla böcker som bara väntar på att bli upphittade och använda, fina också! Är inte expert på just böcker/tidningar om handarbete...men vi har gjort endel fynd vid auktioner på gamla veckotidningar. Vi driver ju ett litet antikvariat Wijk Antik www.wijk.se, där vi säljer mest gamla faktaböcker, kanske en och annan handarbetsbok ;-) och de hamnar på bl.a. www.antikvariat.net
Se där, nu gjorde jag lite reklam ;-) / Karin

Karin said...

Tänk att jag skrev fel ändå... våra böcker läggs ut på www.bokborsen.se. Men på www.antikvariat.net kan man också hitta mycket roligt :-)
