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.
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.
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!
