Deal Day

Yesterday I went to a thrift store with a couple of friends. If anyone needs directions this is the best I can do. I was happy to find inside a large clean  and well organized store. An interesting element to this store was a cafe situated in the front left portion of the building. I am not sure if it is regularly open, but they did have a stage and seating.

 I only had 10 dollars in my wallet for the day so I wasn't really looking for much maybe an old cookbook or 60's style plate. As it turned out I had more than enough cash.

Four great finds! Bon Appetit from August 1983, The World of Tea by (Lipton),
Grand Diplome Cooking Course 1971, & Eat and Stay Slim 1968

 One of my new hobbies this year is collecting old recipes, I want to turn the clock back in my kitchen. This idea started with some cake decorating books gifted to me by a friend who works in a local library. She thought of me when she spotted them in the reject pile. I enjoyed them so I picked these up. I find it refreshing and nostalgic to look at these magazines and cookbooks.

After the thrift shopping we stopped by a Mexican bakery for a pastry and coffee then headed home. Not a bad morning.
