littlegoldenbooks' Shop Announcement

This Etsy shop will be a place to purchase vintage and antique Little Golden Books and other vintage books or items.

Collecting Little Golden Books is a great hobby! They were first printed in 1942 and continue through today. The pictures and stories are beautiful and have delighted children for 70 years.

Thanks for coming to my Etsy shop! I hope you enjoy looking through the available books. I know there are many options for shopping and I feel privileged that you have chosen my shop to look at.


- Originally Little Golden Books sold for 25 cents. They have worked their way up to $3.99 currently.

- The very first Little Golden Books did not have the gold foil spine as we see now. The first ones had a blue cloth spine. Finding one of these in good condition is always a treat for a collector! After the blue spine, came a paper spine that was gold in color - but not foil. There were a few other spines besides the present gold foil spine - the red Mickey Mouse Club spine, a red printed Christmas spine, a solid red spine on a few editions and even an occasional solid orange one. It's fun to hunt for all the different editions.

Because the pictures are just so adorable and colorful, they have been used for scrapbooking and for vintage decorating as well.

Maybe you will find one here that you just have to have. Maybe there is one you had as a child and would like a copy of it. Some of these books are in great shape, some not so great.

If you would like a different combination or international shipping of the books I have listed, convo me and I will make a special listing.

Books are from a smoke free, pet free home.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have about any of the books. Just ask!

Please visit again soon. New books are added frequently.
