Vintage Cook Books Are A Real Treasure Betty Crocker Is Great

Yesterday as I went treasure ( garage sale) hunting one item I am always looking for is vintage

cook books.

I found two great ones to read and also offer for sale on eBay and etsy.

Betty Crocker Pie Shape Red 5 Ring Binder and Duncan Hines Bake in a Book.

I have had this edition of Betty Crocker but first time I have bought the Duncan Hines.

So while they sit on my book shelf before selling I will have to find a recipe or two to try.

These are only a couple of my vintage cook books. 

Take a look at either eBay or etsy to see what is available at this time.

Selling On Ebay Free 500 Auction Style Listings Offered Today

I have been busy re listing items I took off eBay while we wintered in Nevada.

While I took alot of my paper products in my car to list, many of my items where left at home.

I love to read books and to sell them on eBay. With the offer of free auction style listings this is the

perfect time to list them once again.

Most of my work is already done, find a set of books , find the old listing in auctiva and edit my

listing to freshen it.

Decorating With Garage Sale Finds Signed Numbered Cat Prints Hasso

I love to garage sale and go to auctions and estate sales. This is a perfect way to decorate

your home on the thrifty side

So much better than shopping the large box stores where there are several of the same prints in piles.

Chances my friends will not have the same pictures hanging on their wall.

Hubby and I found these two prints that are signed and numbered last fall and today we got out the

hammer and found the perfect place for them.

They are near the front door and visible from my desk in the office. Every time I look up

they are what I see.  Purchase price $20.00 Meow to saving dollars.

Artist name looks like Hasso
