Library book sale
Being a member of the Knitswap group in Yahoo, I saw a post that blew my mind. I believe it was Lynda who posted that she donated her collection of Interweave Knits, Piecework, Vogue Knitting, FCEK, and Spinoff magazines to the local branch of the Sacramento Library, just a few minutes away from where I live.
Come Saturday morning, I was there at nine o'clock , and zeroed in on the magazines. I was the only one interested. There were no others. Almost everyone flocked to the books. I saw them all and I conquered. I asked the girls manning the table if I could have several paper bags because I'm buying a lot of magazines.
Most of the issues were out of print. There was a premier issue or two. They were all my favorite magazines. Final count: 50 magazines at 10 cents a piece! A whopping $5.00 . It was sad because the library did not know the value of those magazines. And I felt like I was stealing. But before I went home, I made a donation.
Thank you, Lynda, wherever you are. THANK YOU!
