Look at this pile of books. Let me tell you it pays to stop at a garage sale even when not planning on it. I was doing errands when I saw a garage sale sign, so I swung in. There in the back corner was a large box stating $10 for Nancy Drew books, Incomplete Set. I took a closer look and saw the old books. Oh how I loved reading Nancy Drew when I was young. They immediately brought back memories me reading on the couch on a Saturday afternoon. I loved the mystery and I loved that she was a girl and could solve mysteries just like the Hardy Boys did. I looked at a couple of the books, and I thought several may be first editions. Woo-hoo. 49 books for $10, what a deal.
Oh how I love “The Secret of the Old Clock” the first book. However I only read the revised version. I can’t wait to re-read this book with the additional 5 chapters. This book might be a first edition. If so, it might be worth a couple of bucks. Definitely a great score.
On another note, I just realized I passed 100 posts to this little old blog this week. I started this blog in June of this year, so I am averaging about 20-25 posts a month. I wasn’t sure how it would go, but I really am having a blast with my blog. I hope you are enjoying following my thrifting, junking, picking, photographing, and decorating, ramblings. I also had my 20th sale on Etsy this week. So Friday night I celebrated by doing a little happy dance.
Thanks so much for reading my blog. On Friday I had over 250 people read my blog. Wow, humbling. To those of you who leave comments, I want to send a huge thank you. Your comments really make my day. Have a fantastic weekend.
