Right at home - cookbook

vintage cookbook

This post will be a little different from the others in the "Right at home" series. I don't have a picture of the item in its new home, but the story of this purchase is so amazing and I thought I fitted so well under the title "Right at home", that I had to share it here.

Back in December I sold an old cookbook, the only book I ever put up for sale on my shop. I usually keep the old books I buy, if not for its content, just because I think they are beautiful things and deserve to be somewhere special. So when I got a message saying it sold, as it often happens, I was a bit sad I would have to say good bye.

Fast forward to the end of March and I received the most touching feedback ever, and it made me really happy I had put the book for sale! The book was written by the buyer's great great grandmother and she had been looking for a copy to give her daughter as a Christmas gift! Could the book be anymore "at home" than that?


I  love seeing the new homes of the items I sell! This is the fifth post on the series "Right at home". To see the other posts of this series, click here.

  1. What a wonderful story! I also love when customers take time to tell me how they are using their purchase - or maybe even show me a photo.
