Time for another cozy read …. 🤣🤣

I‘m flipping through this volume (a Christmas gift from family 😆) and it‘s crazy. Each chapter focuses on one collector and their collection and I must admit to being a bit shocked that these people chose this as a hobby. There are quite a few gross items but a lot of other intriguing ones like Salem Witch trial documents, Lizzie Borden signed registers, wanted posters and the like.

Ruthiella I like how you switch between this and vintage books with heartwarming plots and characters! Keeping it real! 😂 2mo
