One Man’s Trash is another Man’s Treasure!

Today my husband Pete found this old book of poems by the famous Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. It’s dated back to the 1800’s and for a special bonus there was an old handwritten poem inside the book itself….probably from the owner of the book. Looks like his name was Willie Davis. We looked it up and these are going for about $1,000 – $1,500 for book collectors. Very cool find!  I love watching the show Pawn Stars and thought it would be so fun to go in there with something old and see how much you could get for it.  Too bad we don’t live in Las Vegas!
