Tiny books with floral and gilt covers - keepers!



















Believe it or not there were customers who bought lots more than I did.

This guy drove three hours from Atlanta and bought over forty flats of books for a mission in Africa.

Notice he did think to pull out his spare tire just in case. 

There were customers with box trucks ready to be filled.

It was a wild experience to be on the selling side instead of the shopping side.

The book fair was successful which is great news so we can give away the money next year for scholarships and literacy programs.

Plus teachers and charitable thrifts were invited after we closed to gather FREE books and attic treasures.




In other news, on the hunt for windows, I bought a collection of Corning Ware tea pots.

The medium size.






And the large size.













Brace yourself - there is news coming of the state of Horror Monster, my beloved craft stash.


See y'all!

Friday Finds


vintage wicker, vintage books, Ladder, Encyclopedia Britannica
I managed to shop for about 30 minutes this past week.

Found these two early wicker floral display baskets.

One has the original galvanized insert.









Winning the award for the tiniest find is this brass cricket or trinket box.













Two windows and two drawers.

Never found a wood and zinc ladder before.

Quite attractive.












It is in pretty good shape.

A WorkMaster - patent pending.












Now for book fair finds.

I have been buying the discards.

Like these three Webster's unabridged dictionaries and the large Medicology.











A massive hunk of words.















Volumes One and Two of the Gourmet Cookbook.
















A complete set of a British encyclopedia.

Winston's.















A group of French books.

















A French dictionary and novel.


















Part of a set of classic novels.



















Three volumes of a Britannica dictionary.

To go with ...












The complete set of 1894 Encyclopedia Britannica!

Some flaws and cover damage but the insides are pretty good considering the age.








Of course I have been scoping out the old reading books.

Yes, Patty, I am still searching for old Alfred.

As you read this, I am probably hard at work.

Or maybe shopping.

I will be sure to show you my finds next week.

Hope to see you at the Book Fair!


See y'all!

AAUW Books 'N' Things Fair

AAUW, book fair, fundraiser, book sale, Riverfront Antique Mall
Most of you have been commenting on this notice at the bottom of my posts for the last several weeks.

This weekend is the big sale - Friday and Saturday.

This is the AAUW Aiken Branch's big fund raiser.

It is one of the largest of all AAUW chapters.

We need to raise at least $30,000 to fund our scholarships and local literacy programs.

This year it will be located at the Riverfront Mini-Mall located right across the bridge from Augusta, GA.

Just 20 minutes from Aiken, SC.






I will be featuring photos of the sections of books, music, and attic treasures over on my Facebook page each day.

All the books are sorted by fiction/nonfiction.

Then by genre.

Then by author.

Then alphabetized.







There are close to 100,000 books awaiting the crowd of book lovers and booksellers. 

All are welcomed to buy as many books as possible.

I usually buy by the truckload.

Hardbacks are $1 and paperbacks $0.50.


Special books are priced at 25% of their retail value.




 ATTIC TREASURES


Attic Treasures are across the back of the building.

Here's a sneak peek.

This group has worked hard to display all the items and price them very fairly.













I love this dollhouse.

No, I will not buy it.

I must remember I am downsizing.

I am downsizing.

I am downsizing.












The back room of Attic Treasures is packed full from the floor up.

I hope if you are near, you will come and shop for a good cause.

And you can walk next door and enjoy Riverfront Antique Mall.

I will be busy helping with the final sorting and then working during the fair.

Wait until Friday Finds to see some of the books I have purchased.

Book lovers will swoon.


See y'all!
