Treasures Found..

So.. my girlfriend came over and we decided to hit a few thrift shops.  It's a rare day I go to them and NOT spend a few dollars.. I feel it my duty to support them because most of them help other concerns. A new one we found supports Battered Women and yet another supports the Humane Society.

So... one stop gave me three books (need that right? cha!)  I found a mint copy of The Great Tree of Avalon by TA  Barron for 2.00.  Then I got excited because I found a good copy of The Seven Per-Cent Solution by Nickey, ummm ..NIcholas Meyer Now I have all 3 of the Holmes books he wrote.  I almost ordered it off of Amazon but it was not the cheapest book around plus 3.99 shipping, so .75 cents sounded reeeeeeeal good!  And lastly I bought a not so good condition of The Pathways to the Gods which is a follow up book by von Daniken of Chariots of the Gods. (.25 cents!)

In yet another thrift store I found this little wooden rocking horse and I just couldn't leave him there! (1.99)  Isn't he cute?!!


..and at our last stop there was yet another rocking horse! I was on a roll, so I had to bring him home. (1.99)

Total spent: 7:00 !  I love a bargain!  Or is that, I love other peoples junk? heh..probably the latter!

I love thrifting! Very fun horsies, and of course cheap books are always satsifying.

Treasures indeed, Pat. What a coincidence to find the final Sherlock Holmes book you'd been looking for. And you're reminding me that I haven't checked out the charity shops in ages. Love the rocking horses.

You did good, {at! Back-in-the-day, I rarely found anything I actually wanted to buy, when going to Thrift Shops....But I loved going and once in a great wgile would find what was a "treasure" to me, as these things are to you.
