I managed to snag these old books at our school fete, in fact I actually got two large bags full.
I had seen these old books earlier in the day behind the counter but they had rather high prices on them. As the fete was drawing to a close they were reducing everything drastically, so I asked if they were also reduced and they were. Yipee!!
The oldest is dated 1885. I didn't really know what they were about till I got them home, I just liked how they looked, so I was delighted to find some great old classics amongst them like Tolstoy, Chaucer, Sir Walter Scott and Tennyson .
Just look at the lovely marbled pages
A sweet Australian school poetry book and this lovely tea pot and cups were some of my finds.
It certainly is the season for fete's there are a few more in my area coming up in the next few weeks.
