Valentine’s Find
This 1972 edition of How to Pick Up Men! was secured by Laura McLaws Helms, a Fashion/Cultural historian. The book invites us to ”Learn How the Liberated Woman Always Gets Her Man”. See also the boxful of beautifying potions by In Fiore, including this leather pouched solid perfume. We’d say it’s a pretty good overall Valentine’s package. 
Miraculously, we found an exact copy of this ourselves on eBay (buy it here). There’s a few other similar gems here too. Who would have thunk the liberated woman was writing so much in the 70’s?

The Virgin Suicides

One of our fav tales about a household of melancholic sisters, brought to celluloid life by director Sofia Coppola. If you’re feelin’ nostalgic, eBay has the original book written by Jeffrey Eugenides in stock. It’s a beautiful read. They’ve also got plenty of the classic posters, too.
