I hit the treasure trove yesterday and today! It’s been a while since I’d been to the thrift store in town so I decided to pay them a visit yesterday. I came home with seventeen books for just € 3,95.
The pile of red books on the bottom is a series of fairy tale books. They were published when I was a kid. I had two back then. Each book had a main fairy tale and some smaller stories and came with a cassette to listen to the stories and read along. I got a couple more of those a while ago at the thrift store, but now I hit the mother lode.
Snow White, Aladdin, Rumpelstiltskin, Cinderella, Heidi, Sleeping Beauty and Thumbelina. I can’t wait to read them while playing the matching audio from this playlist. Ready to be a kid again 🙂
I also found two picture books, two books on calligraphy, a beautifully bound copy of the Pickwick Papers, a dictionary of Saints, three Nancy Drew books and the Tales of Beedle the Bard. Be still my heart 🙂
Then today I went over to my Parent’s building. They put together a small autumn fair where local crafters could sell their wares. This was the second time they did something like this. I missed the first time, but I wanted to support them. It’s nice when there’s things like this in town. Plus, it places them more into the community at large.
My Aunt turned out to be there as well with a big grab bag stand for her local cat charity. I grabbed for myself a few times and got lucky. Then Mom made me grab for her a few times, I got lucky. Then Mom’s neighbour made me grab for her, and I got less lucky.
I aso bought two hand made christmas cards, a crochet pumpkin, candle holder, two stoneware bowls and cookies. The cookies were very, very tasty.
