At the risk of becoming a one trick pony, I have to tell you about my terrific find this afternoon. Here's the back story: It's almost Mother's Day in the US, and my mother likes screw-back earrings, which are difficult to find these days. There's a place I know where all of the wealthy old dowagers donate their things, and so I have pretty good luck finding earrings for Mother.
I stopped by there on my way downtown this afternoon, and as I was checking out (I found what I was looking for), out of the corner of my eye, I saw a copy of Billy Baldwin Remembers. After I stopped gasping, I asked to see it and the manager told me it was signed! He showed me what they were charging, and then said that it had been there for a while, and since no-one else knew what it was, he'd give me a discount... about a 60% discount!
When we were at Ladew this weekend, they had copies of this book and BB Decorates. I know that BB Remembers mentions Harvey Ladew and Evergreen House. Too bad I have a dinner date tonight, because it's a perfect night to curl up with a good book. (Even though dinner was lots of fun and I had the most charming companion.)
