Paulette @ Cheerful Thrifty Door

I think your book is fantastic, I do so love ephemera of any kind.
I like to go to estate sales with my sister so we can conquer and divide. She knows what I like, and I know what she likes. Thanks for hosting Thrift Share Monday.

Karen G @ It's Still Life

Love, love, love that box of vintage keys. Something about keys that I just really enjoy. Great finds.

Wow, I can see why you were tempted with the book, I love vintage books but the oldest I've ever picked up on my travels would be a century or so. That's amazing. I got a couple of 60s children's annuals for pennies this week though, so happy about that.

Great finds, but that box of vintage keys - what a great deal!.

You certainly unearthed some amazing treasures again this week! I can't help but wonder if the Huntington Library may be a good place to begin on your research quest...maybe they could have someone there that could at least give you a place to start. Are there drawings or color plates in the botanical book...I bet it's quite amazing :-)
Thanks for another great Thrift Share link up!

The keys...The locks...I just want to play with them! The Union Jack lion is wonderful!

That book is pretty swell. Check out the Beinecke (Bine-neck-e) Rare Book Library at Yale. They have a helpful FAQ page and you may be able to find out if they have a copy of your book by checking their catalog. Good luck!

Does that 60s painting have actual rhinestones on it??

My Mom is my thrifting partner. We have lots of fun every weekend and then we share our finds here at your party! Thanks for hosting!!!

Love that Sherry's thrifting partner is her mom...Lovely! I have a super sweet and totally smart thrifting partner when our schedules match. It is just fabulous to have two sets of eyes and share the excitement of a lovely find.

The box of keys is great. It will be interesting to learn what you find out about your book.

I usually thrift alone, although when going to yard sales, I do have a driver (my husband) which speeds things up immensely. Sometimes I have thrifted or gone to yard sales with friends; it's nice for a change up but it does affect my rhythm. I have one thrifty friend in particular who knows what I like and she is great to have along. She spots all kinds of things I might have otherwise missed.

Wow! The keys are fantastic! Thank you for hosting.

Helen and Her Daughters

I love the box of vintage keys, great price too!

angelika

am so loving that book - oh my gosh! how cool is that? and way to go, getting it for half the price! i love it when the thrift faeries act on your behalf. :-)

Your finds always impress me. My two younger boys want me to paint one wall with the Union Jack in order to honour their heritage and recent travels. I have quite a few Ulster Weavers Tea towels in my collection does yours credit the designer?
I hope that you will you let us know when you find out more about the book.

Jeanie

It was an honor to actually thrift with our mentor! We had a wonderful time. Thanks for a great day!!

Old books are always so intriguing, and that towel is very cool!

I went yard saling with a friend. I found an India sari for $15. It's beautiful! And four tall wine glasses, each a different color. $2.50. I do like picking round sales. But don't usually resale things...

Lush

Oh my I am so amazed, on my last thrift encounter I bought the EXACT SAME tea towel!!

I love it, it is lovely soft linen & I am waiting for it to tell me what it would like to be.

You probably have tracked this down already but here is some information about the publisher of your book (scroll down to 'New and Rare Aquisitions')

A wonderful find!

Oh, I would have loved to find that book!

I LOVED our thrifting adventure! It already seems so long ago...With you in Sonoma, Jeanie & Bill in CO & me,500 miles South!!! Making time to connect=priceless! Next time I co-thrift (!), I'll have much less on my plate so that my mojo can kick in ;-)

Bibliocycle

Here's someone selling the same book in Spain for $445.
