6/28/14 Yard Sale Finds

For this week I have a surprise to share. Well, an unexpected surprise for me. I purchased a big old medical book from the early 1900’s. Some really cool color medical images I have plans for in my house. I have an antique medical/oddities theme for one of the rooms in my house. Anyway, I was flipping through the big old 1000 page book and what came falling out?

At first thought, I was thinking, this isn’t real. What are the chances? But, I looked up Abraham Lincoln Memorial items on google and there it was. A framed one sold for $375!! I am almost tempted to keep it, as I like holding onto rare things that have meaning behind them. But, I have so much stuff, I really cannot keep anything else. So, this is a Lincoln paper ribbon you would pin onto your coat for Lincoln Funeral Procession. How cool! Let that be a reminder to you, always check your old books! This is not the first time I have found something hidden in an old book, so it does happen!

6/15/2013 Yard Sale Picks

It’s been slow going for sales the past 2 weeks but I got a box of newspapers dating early 1800’s for free. There is one with an article of Lincoln’s assassination but that one is particularly beat up unfortunately. These are all for sale if anyone is interested I can take better photographs. Nearly all of these are from early 1800’s and there’s about 50 papers.
