This is the blog site of my Little Shop in the Big Woods! I'll post the things I find on my used book hunts. I also love vintage linens, so you might find a few of those here, too. But mainly, I'll share what I find and include links to buy similar items, if you're so inclined. I buy a lot of craft books, too, so I'll try to include some of my completed projects from the books!
So, have a look around. Check back often. I post new items every day! Cheers, Hazel
