Thrifty Thursday: Little Golden Books


Update: I had commented that I was looking for a winter coat. I've found one for $9--down filled, exactly what I wanted.

I love Little Golden Books. A number of years ago, I started picking them up secondhand. I soon learned that I needed to narrow my topics of interest, because there are so many titles!

I have three topics I collect:
Cats
Christmas
Sesame Street

Because I don't bid on eBay or look for "rare" titles, it can take many months before I find a new title for my collection. I recently found BOTH a cat and a new Sesame Street book at the local St. Vincent dePaul for only 30 cents each:

I now have 12 different Sesame Street books:

I will have to see how many cat-themed ones I have. I haven't counted them recently.

Do you like Golden Books?

The ones I remember were well worn from my reading were "Tootle" and "The Little Engine that could". Trains were popular with boys, but I never became a steam engine engineer. . . . I did become another stereotypical of the time boy's dream occupation, but that is another story.

We had them when I was a kid, but I haven't seen them in years. That's quite the collection!

speaking for "those of us of a certain age" who DOESN'T love Golden Books? Fond memories!

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
