As well as being Canada’s “most magnificent bookstore” (according to the late Allan Fotheringham), Victoria’s Munro’s Books also has some of the most beautiful bookmarks around. I have a nice collection that I’m aiming to recycle or repurpose as part of my decluttering mission. So, what to do? I thought I might collage a shoebox with them, which I could then use to store other memorabilia. Not a bad idea. A friend suggested some others: Make, a fan, a floor-to-ceiling stripe on my wall, a bracelet. And that’s without even checking Pinterest! Many possibilities…Munro’s tells me they have some new colours in too. Tempting, though contrary to the decluttering mission.
What to do with souvenir bookmarks?
