Goodwill! Or some other thrift story, that would be guess for the cheapest!

 

ETA: Or antique stores!  It might add up though..

I just looked it up online, and it looks expensive for bulk.. You might just have to take the time to go store to store looking for books you like..  Maybe a library? (they get rid of books quite often actually).

Since there’s better weather ahead (I hope), try to find some flea markets near you! I’ve found all sorts of neat vintage books at flea markets.

@IKAKS:  A friend of mine just had a wedding yesterday where every one of her tables had 2-3 vintage books on them (yes, she also did B & t B theme, but without the cloche jars). She just went around to used books stores in the state, and would buy any old looking hard-bound that was in their discount racks. I went with her for one of these outtings and she nabbed 10 or more for $0.30 each. Don’t do antique stores, they tend to price jack their books.
