Odds are if you are visiting this blog, you like vintage.  So, you might be as excited as I am about this store.  Its called The Fancy Lamb and it is all things vintage.  There's vintage books, household items, patterns, cameras, train cases and, my favorite, journals made out of old hardcover books!

If you're like me, you like hoarding notebooks.  I don't know what it is about being a woman, but cute notebooks and nice pens bring me a lot of joy for some reason.  The one below if made from a Southeast Asia book, but there are so many others!  Textbooks, story books, other journals and more.  The pages inside are lined, but there are others with plain white.  They come in all different sizes and prices.  She even adds a couple of pages from the original book.  If you buy one, and fill it up, she'll give you instructions on how to refill it yourself!  I really want this so bad!!!

The rest of the items in the shop are vintage pieces she has found on her own.  I found a new love for train cases, and she has so many cute ones!  Enjoy!

Good ol' Pyrex.  I love green!  I may need to add this to my wishlist...

Old Dominos.  She suggests to use them in an art project.  It would make a cool picture frame or kids table.

I used to have a typewriter that I would use to write down random stuff.  She has so many in the shop.  Its really making me want to buy another one.  I love the sound of the keys hitting the paper.  Its incredibly loud, and I know my husband would hate me, but it feels so awesome using one!
