I am joining Thrifty Thursday and 2nd Time Around Tuesday. Visit to see what others are "showing and sharing".
My father was a collector of old books. It was just a hobby, and if he could get an old book for a dime or a quarter, he felt he had hit the jackpot!
When he passed away a few years ago, I had the task of packing up about 15 boxes of books to take to auction. Days of research and phone calls led me to make this tough decision.
A few books caught my eye and I decided to keep them. Not because of their value, but because my father enjoyed particular authors, and often quoted them.
A complete set of fragile books written by Edgar Allen Poe (1902) sit around my home. A few are wrapped with a curtain tieback I purchased at MacKenzie-Childs a few years ago.
A gentle reminder of my father.
