Thrifty Thursday #155

It was slim pickings in the secondhand shopping this week.
I actually had some time to myself and took the opportunity to browse.
I slowly walked through my three usual thrift stores.
Sadly, there wasn't much that interested me.

I only bought three different things. . . 

I got four of these for a quarter apiece.
I'm actually not sure what they are. . . 
They look like replicas of Spanish coins.
Anybody know what they are?
I plan to turn them into bracelets.

You know how I love old books.
This Webster's Secretarial Handbook was fifty cents.
It was printed in 1976.

It's in pristine condition!
I think it would make a great gift for an administrative assistant.
I've been thinking of opening an Etsy store for finds like this.

I also got this pack of photo album refills for fifty cents.
Sounds pretty lame, but I can either add these to my photo album (I keep one every year and print out the photos I take) or I could use them as pages in a scrapbook (which I've done before).
Either way, I wasn't going to pass up this buy.

That's all. Two bucks and one hour well spent.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Do all things without complaining and disputing.

The coins were very interesting, I wonder if they were holding scarfs ? But they would look great as bracelets ! Well done, I also love those old thrift stores !!
