I love thrift shops. They have given me many books and magazines that now occupy places of honor in my treasure library.

In this podcast, I discuss resale store treasure hunting. I also describe a magazine I recently picked up at a Goodwill store - a magazine with an article that virtually screams, "Get your old coins here - nothing newer than 1900!"

Well, mostly coins older than 1900, anyway.

Because this once-prosperous village pretty much died when it was left an orphan by the railroad in 1873.

And no, it's not in the old west. Ghost towns can be found in virtually every state, and this one is in Indiana.

I have to agree I absolutely love thrift shops as well. It's amazing the kind of things you can find there. I get in to trouble every time I walk in to our local thrift shops. ;)
