Or at least I thought I had gone through all the boxes......but...I was wrong
I realized the other day there were a few boxes I had missed. The first box I opened, I found two scrapbooks....one had birthday cards, graduations, and first communion cards, and the other was a collection of old airline memorabilia.
Tucked into the back pages of one scrapbooks were three vintage Nancy Drew books jackets!
Nancy Drew books were the first thing I collected. My Mom and I would visit used bookstores, searching for Nancy Drew books. She would take the dust jackets off so I wouldn't lose them. I believe the dust jackets belonged to books printed during the late 1930's.
The Secret of the Old Clock with the blue and orange cover was printed during the early 1930's
Nancy Drew books with the blue denim cover like the one above were printed during the 1950's
Nancy Drew books with the picture on the cover and the yellow spine were first printed in the early 1960's
I love Nancy Drew! And when I was looking for a cover for my Kindle...guess what I found?
A Nancy Drew cover!!! You can't believe how many people comment on it. i take my Kindle everywhere, it fits so nicely in my bag. I read "real" books at home, but for the car and traveling...love my Kindle!
It is finding things like the vintage dust covers in unexpected places that make me happy my mom was a saver!!
You just never know what might be collectible!!
