The Vintage Book Shop - (a giveaway)

So okay... I've been missing in action for a little while.
It's been a busy old time over here, but things 
are slowly getting back on track.

As mentioned in a previous post, there have been some changes... 

I decided that as books are something I'm passionate
 about, know a lot about and own a vast collection of, it seemed
fitting that Melancholy & Menace should become a book shop.


I'll also be introducing handmade bookish items at a later date.

However, I'm having trouble thinking up a suitable and catchy tagline/strapline.

Previously, as a seller of vintage home-wares, I used...
Melancholy & Menace: "Vintage, with a whisper of the macabre".

But now it seems I'm stuck with the overused phrase... 
Melancholy & Menace: "The Vintage Book Shop".


So you see, I really could use your help.

Which leads me nicely to the giveaway...

~ TO ENTER ~

I would love it if you could come up with a catchy tagline/strapline that
would be fitting for a vintage/handmade/macabre book shop.

It will be proudly displayed on the Melancholy & Menace:
|| Blog || Shop || Instagram || Pinterest || Facebook ||

And the winner will receive a book of their 
choice from the Melancholy and Menace shop!

Simply type your line into the comments below, and I will select
a favourite ( which I already know will be a difficult task ).


I'm so excited to see what wonderful words 
your fabulous minds will come up with!

I'll also be creating a new logo, but will save that for a future post.

I'll be around to visit you soon.

Have a great weekend.
