Rare and beautiful, this tiny botany book has been perfectly preserved in its slipcase since 1927. A pretty display piece, a charming gift, and a great companion on hikes.
Grooviest Vogue sewing book ever. Excellent condition in a very sound slipcase. Mary Tyler Moore time capsule!
Charming Jack Hanna illustrations on the cover of each 1951/1952 Country Fair Magazine. These would have been read by the Downton Abbey set. Each magazine is perfect bound, like a book, and just under $10 each.

About

Dr. Carrot

Sven inherited a house full of mid century Scandinavian books, textiles, art, and furniture. He needed help divesting. Jenn knew how to sell online. Voila, a team - with a catchy rhyming name - was born.

Through etsy, we have repatriated treasures to Sweden, sold some fabulous pieces to Hollywood set designers (Mad Men's Miss Porter's School episode - dorm decor), and received many wonderful notes from buyers all over the world.

Our shop name comes from a World War II British cartoon character, invented to encourage children to grow victory gardens and eat the cheap and nutritious bounty.

In the spirit of Dr. Carrot and his sidekick Potato Pete, we believe that vintage finds are vitamins for the soul. Skol!

Additional policies and FAQs
During sales or special offers, you MUST enter the coupon code at time of purchase. Sorry, discounts are not given retroactively.

We are happy to place an item on RESERVE, if a buyer wishes to save it and purchase at a later specified date (no more than ONE WEEK in the future). When a reserve is placed, buyer promises not to UN-RESERVE it.

Please understand that we cannot prevent another buyer from disregarding the RESERVE and clicking "purchase" anyway. To prevent this disappointing outcome, we recommend you buy the item and click "pay by check." Then communicate when you will have sufficient funds to pay (either by paypal, credit card or check), and the item will be saved specifically for you for a period of not more than one week.
