Antique Book Bundles!

 
 
Have you seen these book bundles from Restoration Hardware?  Ahhh, I have and {LOVE} how they look as accessories for the home.  Perfect for adding layers of vintage charm to any ole' bookcase.  But if I remember correctly they were priced at around $30 each...yikes!
 
 
 
Well you can knock em' off by hitting your local Thrift Store!  Buy some old books for around 25 cents each, rip off the covers and wrap em' up with twine.  Now you've got book bundles for a fraction of the cost.
 
Or you can buy them on Etsy from Cat on a Limb Accessoriz for just $15 each.
 
Accessorizing with book bundles...so Simple, Thrifty & Fun!
