For Sale: Cook Books

As the holidays approach, you may be interested in cooking something different for guests. There is nothing like an alligator Thanksgiving to liven up the dinner table! Or, for the not-so-good cooks, try the No Fault Cooking recipes - maybe there is a coupon in it for free legal defense if you mess up totally? Written by lawyers, I think it is a very funny / unique book title. I think I can ship most of there for the basic $2.50 media rate - except for the Italian book - that one will have to be about $5.00 - sorry but it is a gorgeous recipe book - worth paying the postage.

Thanks for looking. PayPal (with credit card option) and checks accepted. Madlyn

FS:Jonette - Chico Estate Jewelry


I will be putting these 3 pins up for sale on eBay soon if they don't sell here. If you are interested in investing, collecting or wearing estate/collectible jewelry, have a look - I really like these pins!

As you can see, they are 3 inches tall, pewter (or pewter like), done by the Jonette company in 1988, I think distributed by Chicos - and you know they had to sell for a lot more than I'm asking here: $25.00 for all 3 pieces. The cactus has one small 'ding' on the left edge but that is all of the potential "flaws" that I see. If you are interested in only one piece and the set hasn't sold, $10.00. Add $2.50 postage for shipping in U.S. for one or all 3 pieces. Thanks for looking. Madlyn

Marco Island, FL

Visiting SW FL should include a visit to Marco Island. Between the beautiful beaches and great shopping, there is FL history in abundance. This small museum is free but interesting and well presented.
