Keiran spotted this fabulous towel on the back of a door on Sunday. I had been to the same estate sale on Friday but never saw the door closed enough to see this. Because Dave is English, I love being able to bring home any form of the Union Jack. I want the children to understand their heritage and to be proud of both the American Flag and the British flag. This might end up in Keiran's room.
Another bookseller and I talked about this book in depth at an estate sale on Friday. We both tried to research it in the field but didn't come up with much. I merely loved holding a book this old. The bookseller left it and in the end I left i behindt. I couldn't justify $100 on something that I knew nothing about.
Of course I thought about this book all weekend long. I was at the house by 8am on Sunday morning in order to be first in the house to look for this book. It was still there and the new price was $50. Now I could take a risk. I still don't have a clear answer as it will take me some time to figure out how to research such an old book.
At the same sale I also picked up an 1845 book called Elements of Botany by W. S. W Ruschenberger, MD. Another one to research.
I forgot to take photos but I found my first ever Pucci items; 2 neck ties.
The best part of the weekend was thrifting with long time readers and friend, Joy and Jeanie (and of course Bill). I'm such a lone thrifter most of the time, that it felt strange to speak aloud my thoughts on items. Joy noticed the same thing. I loved seeing the interaction between Bill & Jeanie. They were so sweet.
Do you usually thrift alone or with a thrifting partner?
Did you go thrifting this weekend?
