Bookstore Specials October 28 - 31

Vintage or antique objects are valued for several reasons including age, beauty and rarity. Determining whether or not an item is vintage or antique is often a subjective decision. The standard that I use is simple; it must be older than I am. That rule doesn’t strictly apply to some of the” vintage” items we have for sale this week. I’m using the term anyway to describe the collection of vintage postcards as well as the vintage University of Michigan Football Programs.

We have a really charming collection of postcards from as early as 1918 and many from the 1950s and 1960s. The postcards are divided by location; including cards from Michigan, Chicago, New York City, Florida, California and more. Looking through these old postcards bring back memories of days gone by and provide a glimpse of social and cultural history.

College football programs also provide a glimpse into the past. The University of Michigan Programs available include: Indiana – Michigan, Nov. 12, 1949; Michigan – Illinois, Nov. 10, 1956; and Michigan – Michigan State, Oct.12, 1957. These programs are in very good condition and are only $5.00 each.

Other items in the spotlight this week are Hobbies and How To (we have a lot of great books) and VHS videos on sale for ½ price.
