Thrifty Thursday - Miss Nancy Drew

February 28, 2013

A few months ago I shared with you my thrifting find of some Hardy Boys books, and explained my rather short-sighted decision as an early teen to sell my collection of Nancy Drew books which I regretted almost immediately.

Over the years I’ve spotted some Nancy drew books at antique stores and markets, but they’ve always been priced at from $6-8 each which I’m unwilling to spend (especially when you consider the guy who bought my rather extensive collection got the whole thing for something ridiculous like $10).

After Christmas I went into a Value village and look what I spotted:

Yay! They were priced at $1.49 each, but when you buy 4 you get the 5th free. So for $12 I’ve restarted my collection.

PS - I always thought that if I ever had a little girl I’d share with her the Nancy Drew series that I loved so much as a child. They were my first big-girl chapter books and I spent hours reading and rereading the pages. Since finding the books above I’ve reread some of them, and I may change my mind – there are some things in the books my modern female self has some issues with, so that plan might have to rethought.
