I was wandering around the goodwill today after getting a new drivers license and ran across Jan Brett's Christmas Treasury. It is a hard cover, in great condition with the dust jacket for only $2. I checked amazon and eBay and they start at around $40! I know it was a completely frivolous purchase, but Jan Brett is one of my favorite children's authors. My kids are going to love it! This isn't my book, but here is a pic of what it is.

Re: Look what I found for $2!

I just saw this post while searching for Jan Brett books on FSOT. That's a fantastic book. We just read some of the stories to my son before bed tonight. (Even though it's not Christmas! He LOVES it!) I got mine at Goodwill, too ... but mine was $2.99 and the spine was starting to peel off. You really scored!
