Thank you for this special Babar book! My dog ate my own edition last week, and finding this took the sting out of it. Received quickly and with a sweet note extra touch!

I was very pleased with the excellent quality of the trays; the seller had taken a lot of care packing and they arrived quickly. I would definitely buy from this seller again

Vintage Adoption Agency

Kultur is the word for 'culture' in German and most Scandinavian languages. This shop examines the treasures of culture past. The goodies that are special enough to make us smile or even grin are presented here. Sometimes it almost feels like we are an adoption agency finding new homes for orphaned vintage items.

Kultur is the Etsy shop of two European transplants to California’s Central Coast. One is a finder and describer, the other is the shipper when not functioning as a feeder of beasties.

About us: Nature lovers. Star gazers. Sushi addicts. World citizens. Animal fanatics. Cat-food-can openers. Dog walkers. Die-hard bibliophiles. History buffs. Trend watchers. Day dreamers. Pinky & the Brain.

"'I am a Thing-Finder, and when you're a Thing-Finder, you don't have a minute to spare." - Astrid Lindgren in Pippi Longstocking
