I’ve blogged before about the occasional gems to be found at antique malls, thrift stores, and garage sales. In the spirit of Two True Freaks’ Garage Sale Gloat episodes, I thought I’d drop in and tell you guys about my latest score…maybe inspire you to embark on a little treasure hunt of your own.
So, the It Came From The Nerd Cave family was out doing some pickin’ and a thriftin’ yesterday morning. Stopped by a local thrift store and made a bee-line to the book section. As part of my efforts to expand my knowledge base (shout out to my brother-in-law for teaching me that phrase), I’ve been keeping an eye out for books on collectibles, antiques, and misc. stuff–price guides and such. And while I’m not a coin collector and don’t plan to become one, I noticed a 1984 Coin Values book and picked it up.
