A Fistful of Dollars – Savers & Vinnies Carrum Downs

On a budget this week, not much left over after bills to do a proper hunt,

Managed to get a lift to Carrum Downs, Savers first, looked like somebody had been in not long before me as there were empty spaces where books had recently been in, no luck.. there were a few Henry Lawson hard covers, but I gave them a miss this week. not much else there today.

Got in the car and headed to the Vinnies down the road, a lot more books to choose from, could have bought a few more, but limited money to spend this week. I did however settle for 5 books, there was also a nice Bryce Courtenay collection that I couldn’t justify buying.

Overall was very happy with my purchases, some interesting books like the Helen of Troy non-fiction, and a Richard Adams book I didn’t have.

Support your local Op / Thrift store, it’s winter and they help people in the community with simple things like warm clothes etc, A few dollars spent in store helps someone out there out.

Until the next hunt.
