Handmade Eco-friendly Little Golden Book Notebooks

Dunedin, Otago | On Etsy since 2015

Announcement    ​Hi I'm Barbara from Dunedin, New Zealand. I'm a crafter that loves a bit of whimsy, feeling nostalgic and colourful imagery. So what better way to enhance these passions than create a product from yesteryear that brought joy into our hearts as kids - Little Golden Books upcycled into sustainable notebooks.

I source vintage books from charity shops or book sales and use them differently depending on the amount of wear they have seen
-if they are still in very good condition they are on sale here untouched
-if they are slightly worn I transform them into notebooks
-if they are too far gone I make bunting out of the pages and use the
individual pictures for embellishments

The resulting one of a kind notebooks make a unique ethical gift for book lovers, vintage enthusiasts, children, teachers, party favours, conference gift bags and eco-friendly friends and family.
