I like stuff. More than stuff, I like books. Imagine my giddiness when I came across a book filled with stuff—old expensive stuff.
According to the description on Amazon.com, “The Complete Encyclopedia of Antiques” is a
Collectible 47 year-old Antique reference guide has 1472 pages of photos, descriptions, and history of all major areas of antiques through the ages. A wonderful resource with hundreds of pictures to aid the collector in understanding and acquiring knowledge of all facets of antiques. This is a most comprehensive and authoritative single-volume sourcebook for everyone interested in antiques.
Well, I paid twenty-five cents for my collectible reference guide and am sure to get my money’s worth on the return. As a writer, I like having items like this to aid in my research so I can add to my story settings and even the plot. I might even come across some cool goodies while I’m out yard sale hopping.
