Thrifty Thursday #38

     I'm a little later than usual with my post today- it's just been a nonstop kind of day! I was able to fit some thrifting into my errands today and here's what I found. . .

This book was the first thing I spotted that I wanted- Beeton's Book of Household Management. I love the font and the odd size (4.5"x7" and 2 .75" thick!),

I love the first two pages,

I love the chapters (Mistress, Housekeeper, Cook, Kitchen-Maid, Footman, Coachman, Valet, Lady's Maid, etc.) and I love the original copyright of 1861. This was a second printing from 1969.
This book was $2 which is more than I usually pay for an old book, but I think it was worth it. And no, I don't plan to cut this one up!:)

ThisI had a good book haul today. I got several books and they all cost only a quarter each.
I truly cannot pass up an old text book!

Look at this one!!

Isn't this sweet? Copyright 1944.
I think this would make a cute cover for a baby themed scrapbook.

How about these covers? Again, I'm thinking child themed scrapbook.
Copyrights 1958 and 1955

And when is the last time you've seen one of these? Got it for a quarter and it's not going to be used as a clothes hanger at this house. I've got my wheels turning trying to figure out what I can do with it.

My final purchase was this old key for a nickel. Isn't it unusual looking?
     Well, I got all that at one store. Only $3.55 plus tax. Man, I love thrift stores!
     Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
