I was out at the weekend and had a look through a local charity bookshop.
I saw The Collectors Guide to Thimbles, it has lots of colour and B&W photos of thimbles through the ages, and for £2 I just could not resist it.
My wife couldn't believe I wanted it, even the book seller was astonished that he had sold it.
I know there is plenty of online resources, but I just love a book
Happy 2018 hunting to you all

You can’t beat a printed copy though. I managed to bag myself a bargain original copy of the my local edition of the Victoria History series despite already having the online version. I love opening the pages and leaving real bookmarks.
