Hidden Treasures.

Today I am going to be joining my very favorite blogger in the whole world, Diann, at The Thrifty Groove, for her recently adopted blog party, Thrifty Things Friday.

The Thrifty Groove

While camping this last week, I had to go into town to get a few little things and I stopped at the library, just to see what it was like.

Like we always do when we go to any library, I looked at their used books for sale. I found one I liked, A gardening book, so I took it to the desk to pay for it.

The librarian suggested that I look in the cabinets in the back room, where they had more books that wouldnt fit on the shelf in front. So I did, and I found a treasure trove!

Any one of these books would have been enough to get my attention, but all of them at the same time made my heart all aflutter and my knees weak.

And then, just when I thought it couldnt get anybetter, what did I find???

And to top it off...

And the best part...

Softcover books are 10 cents, hard cover 15 cents, so I paid 15 cents each for these books.

A quick tally of cover price shows these books at right around $195 if I bought all nine of them new.

Now, head on over to The Thrifty Groove, to see the finds, steals, bargains, deals and thrifty escapades of other reades this week.


  1. That really was a great deal! Now I know another "must stop and check out" place to head to when we go camping again! Thank you for joining TTF!

LOL, I just had to write that because I have been leaving "have a lovely Mother's Day" on all my other party participants!

  2. Wow that is some haul of wonderful gardening books! Love them and you can't beat that price! hugs, Linda
