It’s important to take a closer look at anything you buy in the Thrift Shop to make sure you are OK with the quality of the item — after all, we sell primarily used goods! This week, you can really get a close-up view with the Spencer Lens Co. monocular microscope. (This is a figurative statement, not literal — you really can’t stick your clothes under the lens!) The microscope dates from the 1940s or 50s and is in excellent condition in its original wooden case complete with the instruction manual. There are a few lenses and old slides and a doctor’s letter discussing specimens — truly a great vintage piece.
We receive new items as well. This week you can purchase a new Peter Rabbit by Wedgewood Nursery Set (cup, bowl, plate) or the tennis or golf remote accessory for your Wii.
