On a recent trip to Waynesville, NC, I spent an hour catching up with shop owner, Etsy seller, and antique collector Kristi Siplon. She treated me to delicious coffee at her little cottage and then we drove over to The Laughing Lamb, her mostly antique shop located in the historic Frog Level section of Waynesville. No sooner had I walked through the door, she showed me the Invisible Bookshelf.

This is way cool! So cool, in fact, that during last week's big spring garden festival, shoppers who came to the festival to enjoy plants and flowers, walked past Kristi's beautiful array of garden-themed antiques and pretty floral china, and went straight for the Invisible Bookshelf.

Each $22 shelf can hold up to 20 pounds of books. The bottom slides into a book and holds it horizontal, and then the back is mounted to the wall. Kristi wants to hang this beside her bed, and stack it with current reads.
