The house wasn't in the best condition, but the estate sale company had organized quite a bit of stuff and put it on display. One room had a long counter FULL of old magazines for only $1 each (before the discount). The previous owner was quite a pack rat.
I picked out these five. Two of them are from the forties, two from the fifties, and one from the sixties. I would have loved to bring home more, but I don't even know what I'll do with these. They're sure fun to look through, and the ads are amazing!
I also found this old nursery rhyme book with a copyright of 1944.
I also saw a box of tickets from football games in the fifties! That's right! They were in fantastic shape! Even with the discount, they were $1.50 a piece. But I didn't want just one, I wanted the whole box. I sure could not have justified that purchase to my hubby. So I didn't get any- not even one. After I left, I wished I had offered a price for the whole box- the sale was only going for another thirty minutes and they may have worked with me. Lesson learned- won't miss a chance like that again.
Hope you all have a super weekend. Happy thrifting!
