Old Hollywood Yard Sale!

Posted in - books, classic film, collecta-belle, the oliviers on June 14th 2010 1 Comments

My departure for London is coming up fast!  In 3 weeks I’ll be moving back home, which mean I have a lot of organizing and packing to do. So, I am having a little online yard sale to downsize my collection.

I have a HUGE stack of photography books (mostly old Hollywood and fashion) that I’ve collected over the past 6 years, which I won’t have room for at my parents’, and frankly, I don’t really need them anymore.  I would love to pass these on to someone/people who will really appreciate them.  All of these contain photos of either Vivien Leigh or Laurence Olivier.

If you are interested, please email me at with the books you want and your location, and I will send you a paypal invoice.  All books will be shipped book rate.  Shipping included in listed price.

All proceeds from this little yard sale are going toward my grad school savings fund.  Thanks for looking!

    You should list your stuff for sale online. There are several sites that will allow you to do so. I recommend because it’s great and totally free.
