Frugal Fun: Vintage Surprises

When I go to garages sales, I'm automatically attracted to those everything-in-this-box for, say, $5. Often, you can do a quick scan to see if you're getting something extra-special. But when I picked up my $5 box at a recent garage sale, somehow these coloring books from the late 1940s and early '50s were inside, out of view. A few of the inside images had already been filled in with a crayon's hue, but the books were in remarkably good condition with the cutest Christmas images gracing their covers. What a sweet surprise!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,
