I found this book tucked away on a shelf. I love that the inscription was written in 1903. The book was published in 1902. In the back are several ads for other books by the publisher. They cost $1.50 each–in 1902 dollars!
Secret awesomeness of that book, though? These 1960s photographs that were tucked in the pages. The color one is a marching drum line dressed like Native Americans and the black and white one is an Asian mother and daughter sitting on a covered wagon (minus the cover.)
My number one favorite find–maybe of the whole year (and it’s only February!) I’ve been searching and searching for a thrifted record player for years. I really want a suitcase record player, but I never see them, and when I look on line they’re so expensive. This small stereo (it has a double tape deck, a radio, and a three-disc changer, plus the record player on top) was only $20, including the speakers that aren’t shown in the picture. YAY!
So, then I spent several hours searching through dusty stacks of albums. So much fun. My favorite find was the soundtrack to Jesus Christ Superstar. I also found several books-on-record for Ruby. And this basket that holds them all perfectly.
