Grand Old Girls of the 1900s

Anne's Diary

A couple came in with some gorgeous Girls' Annuals at least 100 years old. With books like these I offer to keep them in the shop for sale on commission. First I do some research to determine prices for them, but I need the customer to leave the books with me so I can do that. These customers didn't want to, even though I would write out a list of all books they left here as a receipt. This being the case, there is nothing I can do to help them sell the books.
