Saturday on the book hunt

By , March 1, 2008 9:35 pm

Started out at the Poor Man’s Trade Day just to get a feel for the crowd. Quite a few folks both selling and buying. Picked up 6 paperbacks and 1 hardback mysteries all.

Moved on to Flamingo Trade Day where we ran into a guy that is selling nothing but books. Found a few titles and talked trade for a while. Nice guy, and has a good selection of books of all kinds. Will be paying him a visit on a regular basis. Bought 11 books from him.

Headed back toward Gadsden then turned onto Green Valley Road and out at the light in Southside on 77 to Rainbow City and for the 3rd time this week Eagle Rock Thrift Store. They keep putting more out and I gotta keep going back. πŸ™„ Got 30 paperback and 9 hardbacks there. Decided to see where the road went that Eagle Rock was on and ended up in down town Gadsden within about 3 miles. Went from there to Atalla and a small thrift store we try to hit a couple of times a year and picked up a few books there. Very slim pickens there today. Wandered around town and checked out several of the antique shops. Interesting place. Several new shops have opened since our last trip there. Gonna have to go earlier in the day next time we make the trip.

Back out to 77 and Green Vally and 432 to Saks Winn Dixie and then home. Been shelving books since other than for a short bit cooking and eating supper. Still got piles to get in place. Need more shelves. Which entails moving a large amount of dirt, and a mobile home. Then gutting and rebuilding said mobile home. And moving more dirt and another mobile home. Then I’ll have a courtyard about 60 feet square with buildings housing books surrounding it on 3 sides. 😎 Waiting is…

Tomorrow, we are gonna try to go to Scottsburrow (sp???) 1st Monday which goes for 3 days from what I have heard. Hope so. πŸ™„ If not we’ll have a nice ride anyway. Till tomorrow… 😎
