And magazines are books!
I have quite a few vintage magazines that I prize highly. My oldest one so far is the May, 1888 issue of "The Cottage Hearth". A one-year subscription was $1.50 or 15 cents per issue.
It contains an article by Mary Bartol entitled "The Author of 'Little Women'".
Included is an article "Artful Decoration and Amusement" by A. W. Ombat, which has pictures of a "Frame for Marine Picture' and "Row-Boat Bookshelves". Good design lasts forever.
And the "Latest Styles in Millinery".

My newest venture is selling "stuff" at an antique mall. I moved into a very small space in August of last year and have just recently enlarged the space. I sell glassware (kitchen and decorative), sewing items, kitchenware, books, hats, and other sundry and wonderful items. It's becoming more and more work - but fun. I work four days each month as part payment for the space, and have met many wonderful people.
