If Etsy existed in 1938....

I have to take back what I said about my man yesterday, for the second day in a row he has emailed me interesting links. The picture above is from "Money Making Hobbies" written in 1938 by A. Frederick Collins (via Get Rich Slowly). Perhaps if Etsy existed back then, it would have been populated with chic crepe paper berets, woven cellophane belts and button trees. The link is worth checking out - it's a bit of a laugh, and the Get Rich Slowly site has some good budget hints - like how to save money on books. Hope you enjoy!

oh my golly, maybe some of those ideas will help with my 2007 budgeting plans! i'll just go into a sideline business of window dressing, cellophane dresses, or cookbook sales...thanks for sharing that, what a good giggle! (and isn't it great to finally see some snow on the ground?)
