Thrifty Finds

I have a small collection of vintage books, I like to add to it when I can.
 It is hard to find books with red or yellow covers but the last time I went thrifting I was lucky enough to find two, both written by Australian authors. The one on the left is Black Lightning by Dymphna Cusack and The Rainbow Bird by Vance Palmer.
These next three were bought just because I love the artwork on the front covers.
 Readers Digest condensed stories, these two were published in 1966
 and this one in 1965.
 I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this little dish when I bought it but I needn't have worried, my youngest daughter claimed it as hers as soon as see saw it.
This salt box reminded me of the one my Mum had in her kitchen, I just couldn't pass it up. And a apple corer to replace the one that broke.
Not bad for less then $10.00.
