Trip To The Thrift Store

Last week we checked out one of our local thrift stores (there are only 3 in two different cities). Usually we find some great stuff but this visit was disappointing. Most of the small things were gone for some reason, I mean completely removed. The shelves and everything. Not sure why.

But we did manage to search out a couple of old books that were quite interesting. When we go to yard sales this is one of the things that we always buy. The books have to be hard cover and from at least the early 1960s, or earlierdepending on the book.

The first two books were just below, classics.

The third book is something that I had never seen before anywhere – a sewing class text from 1922.

Anyway this is all we could find that day. Everything was 50% off so the total we spent was $5.
