I'm beginning to wonder if the title of this blog is a misnomer. I do enjoy frugal living and writing about it, but since I'm semi retired (again!), former interests have taken a larger part in my life. It's been fun, being able to bake a loaf of bread when I want to, planning a garden more thoroughly, knitting bed socks and blankets and rummaging through thrift stores for favorite treasures.
Some of these favorite treasures are collectibles, mostly from the 20th century. I enjoy Depression Glass and marketing history, among other things, so I thought, "Why not?" Why not write about that, too? I couldn't find a reason not to, so I did. :)

Quaker Oats Premiums Through the Years
Maybe that will give you a clue as to why I love to shop at thrift stores. Besides clothing, books and more modern household items, they can be great sources of collectibles to keep, give as gifts or sell. Why not?
