Thrifty Book Finds

I had the best luck the other day! On a whim, I stopped into a thrift shop by my mother’s place and found the sweetest books at the best price I could have imagined!

50 cents each! That one in the front is from 1907! It doesn’t have any colored illustrations, but I just love it!

Here are a couple of pages from two of these books. These books are so old they are slightly falling apart, so they may have to sit on a shelf for a while until I figure out how I’m going use them.

Three more. How cute are those! And the illustrations are just gorgeous!

Lastly, these two. I would love to have a collection of vintage “The Christmas Carol” books! I have another one, but took it apart to make a journal out of Β and have regretted it ever since. (In my defense, at least I read the book before I took it apart)

So, let’s drink a toast to Uncle Scrooge and finding aΒ treasure trove of great vintage books!

Thank you once again for the visit,

Have a wonderful day,
