I got all these books and magazines for just $12.00 and I also found an old white sewing machine and table for $10 bucks but cant take a pic cause its to heavy for me to unload by myself!! All the books are in great condition don't think some of them were even used!

I just couldn't pass them up!! they were all fifty and twenty five cents, a few were a dollar. I figure even if I only get one pattern or tip out of each of them then it was worth it. Also check to see if your library sells used books and magazines i 've found some that way before also.

Sweet! I love thrift store finds! I'm dying to hit the ones near me but summer time is hard with the kids at home. I'm hoping to sneak out tomorrow and do the rounds... It's been a long time since I've gotten out of the house except to take the kids to and from vacation bible school...! I'm starting to feel shut in!

Nice find. I recognize some of those magazines and they're pretty current.
