Found Things – thrift store books.

Thrift stores are wonderful places to find all kinds of stuff. Most things in thrift stores are junk but books are great finds as they only cost a $1.00 or so.

Gus and I spend many nights browsing the recipes or gardening ideas and I laugh at some of the dated hair styles or how foods or plants that are now common were once considered exotic!

The most treasured items to me are the hand written notes, photographs, or inserted recipes I often find. The one below looks like an address in Paris followed by a series of numbers. A Paris phone number? A woman’s measurements? It was found in a cookbook afterall!

Sometimes after a couple readings I decide its not worth keeping so I donate it back to the thrift store or to Goodwill or The Salvation Army Thrift Store.

Or some times after I get home with my find I realize I already own a copy. Anyone want this duplicate copy of Pillsbury’s Kitchen Family Cookbook? I have two now!

It will probably be on the shelf at The Bargain Box Thrift Store in Cameron Village after my next donation!

Besides, its time for Downton Abbey and I should see what all the fuss is about.
