You might remember last year, when I showed off this set of Topsy-Turvy books:
Beth (of Needles, Threads & Crafts) commented that she'd had a set of these when she was a kid, and that she'd love to have a set for her daughters. And guess what I found at a garage sale! I paid $20 for my set last year, and I got this one for about $3 - sweet!
I thought it was another complete set, but it turned out that it had two repeats - "Audubon's Animals/Audubon's Birds" and "The Tailor of Gloucester/How the Leopard Got His Spots". Oddly enough, I didn't have either of those two books in my original set - maybe they were from a 'bonus' set or something? Anyway, I'll be keeping the two extra ones to add to my set, and passing the rest on to Beth. Yay! I just love it when that happens!
So - what strange and rare object are you lusting after? Let me know, and I'll keep an eye out for you. You just never know!! :-)
