We all have memories of a Ladybird book. For me, my sister and I always had a new exciting book every year in our Christmas stocking from Santa. I still have my own childhood books now, the images are so evocative of their time. The ladybird books I have to sell are from different eras and have varied rarity and therefore cost. The early books from the 1960's were matt board books, often with a dust jacket. Some of the rarest books can sell for large sums, one of the most sought after book is Cinderella with dust jacket.
The two rarest books I have for sale are 'The Party' and 'A Second Book of British Birds and their nests' both 2/6 early versions.
I'm Imogen from Norfolk, U.K. I have a love of interesting colourful vintage items, especially from the 1950's. Pelham Puppets are one of my strongest collecting areas. There is nowhere to buy vintage Pelham Puppets other than through internet auction sites and auction houses and I felt there was room for somebody to open a shop.
