Default My Oldest Thrift Store Find

i was at goodwill last week and found this in the picture frame section. they were selling the frame with card for $.99. when i got home, i threw out the ugly frame (no picture of frame).

This is an 1890's McLaughlins XXXX Coffee trade card. not worth a whole lot, but a cool find.

Very cool. You can actually find some 19th century stuff out there for surprisingly cheap prices.

I guess my vintage basketball collection, small as it may be, isn't welcomed in this section either. LOL
