Last month I took my kids to the Goodwill Surplus store (89 cents per pound - you dig through bins) to get some clothes. I always head for the paper stuff/books. I found this nifty little book, thought it would look really sweet with my tiny (fake) book collection. Then I forgot about it. Nearly a month later, I found the bag and went through it, finding all the cool hand written recipes and stuff ... and my little book.
Then I looked at the publication date ... this thing is for real!
I feel good about rescuing this little book from certain destruction. The surplus store is the last stop for items that don't sell at Goodwill's regular stores, and from there they get smashed (glass), shredded (paper) or sent to developing nations (clothes) by the ton. I probably paid a penny for this gem!
