    Great finds at a great price, congrats! I have to say my only freebie find so far was a tatty first edition copy of The Stand. I found that while attending a viewing. The funeral home had books-by-the-yard decorating, and The Stand caught my eye. I asked if I could take it, and they said yes
    Never pass up an opportunity to pick up a book LOL!!!

    While I was out gallivanting today, I stopped in at an “Antique Shop”. Actually more of an odds and end shop, but I have found somet interesting things there in the past. Today I found someone’s treasured collection of Sherlock Holmes books and movies. I mean, there were some great things, as you can see from the pictures. The three Jeremy Brett items, two books and the pamphlet are the jewels in the crown. I paid $3.00 for Bending the Willow, 1996 Ed., it is going for around $250.00 on ABE. The Jeremy Brett - Linda Pritchard Story is going for $95.00. The pamphlet, Remembering Jeremy Brett 1997, $108.00. I haven’t checked the other titles yet. As I was looking through the books, the shop owner told me they also had a Sherlock Holmes lamp that had come in with the books. Really, I said. I had to see it, even I couldn’t afford it. Turns out, I could afford it. I paid $68.00 for all the books and the lamp. I felt great for getting a good deal, I didn’t even haggle, which is unusual for me. I felt even better for rescuing a small part of someone’s passion.

    I was off today and hit a couple of thrift stores. Nothing I can retire on but some fun adds. I'm especially pleased with the Folio set of Georges Simenon's Maigret.
