Special Announcement: The First Freebie

Book Freebie

Hello, thrifters. If you read our last post, you know that one of our fine followers will win a special thrifted gift. And that prize is the above book, The Complete Book of Small Antiques Collecting by Katharine Morrison McClinton.

This hardcover treasure from 1965 is packed with handy and helpful historical information on Americana, Victoriana and country antiques. The front cover reads, “From advertising fans to watch papers, from pudding molds to rose bowls, here is the up-to-date guide on how to identify, purchase and build a collection of small antiques."

Of course, it’s not 2011 up-to-date. It’s 1965 up-to-date, only lending to the antique charm. Rescued from the Philly Aids Thrift, this would make a nice aid and addition to your vintage collections.

And it can be all yours for the low, low price of $0.00 

Follow us. And you’re entered to win. Once we hit 50 followers, a name will be drawn at random… from a thrifted hat, no less.

So good luck and keep on thrifting!

YAY! That looks like a good read! I'd love to know what was considered antique in the 60's. Its kinda funny that now the book itself is a collectible!
