Welcome To Dakota Prairie Treasures!

 

Antique Book, CD & Single Pattern RepublicationsTM

 

Thank you for your interest in our Antique RepublicationTM Products!

 

I love that which is old & related to needlework & arts/crafts. Especially books, as I feel you can learn virtually anything in life providing you have the interest, drive & a GREAT book to study!

 

Can anyone say bibliomania? lol

 

My personal philosophy is that books just don't fail you on any level...

 

Please join us in the adventure that books provide!
