When I get the chance to go out thrifting and junking I love to fine old books. I especially love
old leather bound books. I am trying to fill some of my bookcases.
I haven't had a lot of luck finding the old leather ones, but found a great deal on these
at a local flea market.
Then I stopped by a so called "thrift" store which had prices like an antique shop, but
I did luck up on this old silver fork.
I love the detail of this piece. It was so badly tarnished that I couldn't see the intricate detail.
After using my silver cleaner wipes it was like new and it was only $1.
It says community silver on the back.
For now this stack sits on this stand with a cloche over it. The cloche caused too much glare
in the photos.
I found these at another thrift store with real thrift store prices. These large old books were
only $1 each. I was surprised I found pairs.
My book collection is slowly growing without spending a lot.
