#frugalfashionista: favorite fictions

Added yet another “new-old” book to my classics collection. She’s a 1928 edition of “Works of Leo Tolstoy.” I’m a sucker for classics, a true literary nerd.

Brattle book shop in downtown Boston made for a sweet nolstagic adventure and a cute little date for my boyfriend and I. Back in Ohio we had “half price books” visits as one of our favorite past times to do together. Moving to Boston I found a new quaint book shop to continue our past time tradition. They had an adventurous collection and an inviting set-up with two floors of books inside and a slew of deeply discounted books outside.

My find – $5

#frugalfashionista: thrifted treasures

Thrifting on a New England Sunday. My sister and dad came to visit me in boston during this long Columbus Day weekend and we made a trip to the thrift store to start out our Sunday. 

My finds: 

  
I fell absolutely in love with the charms on this necklace. It perfectly reflects my love for travel. Picking it up was a no brainer!

  
This was what really made my heart jump in excitement. It was a collection of Emily, Anne and Charlotte Bronte books. They were editions from 1922! I have a large place in my heart for classic novels and period films, so this was a heart warming find! 

I also found two pics of furniture for my living room. Those I will share In a later post once they’ve been restored. 

Today was a successful hunt. 

Much love -MA
