Second hand shopping
I did one thing on Friday that I really enjoy doing . . . second hand shopping.
I love looking for bargains.
My first stop was to St. Vinnies, where I bought:
Two hardly used handbags.
The red one will be perfect for evening use
and the black one has no scratches and in excellent condition, looks almost brand new.
And one long skirt,
doesn't look as good in the photo and looks lovely on, slimming!
Then I went to the Lifeline book fair and filled my granny shopping trolley to the top with books:
As I am a collector of old cookbooks, this will be added to my collection - 1941 version
Katey Dicksons was the daughter of Charles Dicksons, the author.
I almost bought (new) the Father Brown series, glad I didn't as this was a bargain at $5.
Mao's Last Dancer is an excellent read, wanted to own my own copy.
I have never read Uncle Toms Cabin, now I can.
Three novels on those days when I want lite reading.
The Flying Doctor sounded very interesting.
I always look for a few art books as these are usually expensive in the stores.
I also bought 5 DVDs and 3 books on fish for my son.
I only bought one shopping trolley full, others had boxes and bags of books
- I did wonder how they were going to get it all to the car!
I could have bought far more, but I was running out of room and to be practical, I don't have the room in my house for any more books!
After walking up and down rows I now have sore feet and back!!
Whenever I am on the computer, Ruby is near by supervising.
She sits on top of the filing cabinet on "her" cushion.
I usually pull up the blind so she can look out of the window.
To all my wonderful friends - have a wonderful and blessed weekend.
