Thrifty Thursday 6.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
I bought this book at a flea market they have every Sunday about a half hour away from my house. A young boy was selling tons of great books but was kinda pricey for a flea market. However, I had been looking for a copy to have of my own for a while. I paid $6 for it.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderful and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll.
I got this from the "used books" rack at my public library for 50 cents! It's my favorite book and I've read it numerous times and even did my senior research paper on it. My old copy was ridiculously worn with pages falling out at the binding so this was a nice replacement.

I bought this belt from a young girl at a flea market. She was about my age and was selling a bunch of clothing all from really nice stores. She also had a hobby of making little houses out of leaves and other materials from nature to make it look like they were inhabited by fairies. They were all beautifully crafted but I unfortunately lost her business card to give her the credit she deserves. I got this canvas and leather Gap belt for $2. It's great to wear around the mid waist with dresses, skirts, and shirts.
