Lovely Ladies

Books can be heavy-in their weight as well as their subject matter-so why not support those massive masses of words on your shelf with a pair of equally substantial bookends? Modeled in the spirit of the Machine Age, these retro-classic ladies are no shrinking violets. Their strong deco forms reflect their durability and power to keep your tomes from toppling so you can remove a book without worrying about throwing the rest off balance. Designed by Chris Collicott. Made in Taiwan.

Sold as a set of two.

                One of our beloved book club members is moving to CA from NC. The Leaning Ladies bookends set was the perfect gift to remind her of our mutual love of books and one another.

                          Not really MY style, but they do look nice, and are reasonably priced, also.

                          These are cool bookends, but they make my thighs hurt just looking at them. Have you tried that exercise?

                          I love this because it represents how women have to do it all. We have to because look at the alternative? Girls rule!
