If you love design books (or really any kind of book), today's post is for you. I want to tell you about a book source that I discovered a few years back. It's called Thriftbooks. I've ordered from them multiple times over the years, and saved myself some money.

I haven't bought any new books from them, but I have bought several used books because I have no problems buying second-hand. I usually check this source first when I come across an interior design book I'm interested in. I love design books for both inspiration and decorating. When you find a book you're interested in, the site will tell you what condition the used book is in. The price is usually so good, it is worth the risk to trust the condition description. I've been pleased with what I've ordered. 

My latest purchase from Thriftbooks is an old book (1991) that I saw on a table in Mandy Eno's home. She's one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram. Her home is beautiful and authentic, collected and welcoming. Follow her here, if you don't already. She has multiple gallery walls in her home, and they are all so good! 

Hoping for some wall inspiration, I looked up this book Decorating with Pictures

Here are a few of my favorite gallery walls from the book.

So now, the next time you are hunting for an old book or even a new book, remember this source. Check Thriftbooks first. They may have what you're looking for, and they will definitely save you money.  :-)

    1. Oh, good! I check them first when I'm ready for something new!
