I finally got to MacKay’s in Knoxville! I had a wonderful morning all by myself roaming as long as I wanted to with no one else hurrying me. It’s a lovely big store, so organized and clean. They have cool little buggies that you put the plastic hand-held baskets like at the grocery store when you aren’t buying a lot. You can put two on this buggy. They sell used books, DVD’s, CD’s and video games. There was also a small table of used board games and one of jigsaw puzzles. There is a mezzanine and a glass elevator up to it. You can trade in your books for credit. I doubt I’ll do that as I won’t get over there often and I’ll give them to the library sale anyway.
They don’t have a lot of older books like I like as they are quite picky about the books they take in. I did manage to get twenty six books though! Almost all the older mysteries I saw on the shelves! And most of them for .90 or .75 cents! They don’t seem to value older books at all! I also picked up a set of four Herule Poirot movies! Now I have a set of him and one of Miss Marple. Maybe my grand-daughter and I will sit up late and watch them while she is here. She loves watching my British mysteries with me. They are coming in this week for a month. Anyway back to the books…
always wanted to read Elly Griffiths and our libraries over here don’t carry them. I was tickled to find one! The other day Yvette @ in so many words… reviewed Elizabeth Daly’s Arrow Pointing Nowhere and I told her I really wanted to read that one. Treasure of the day! Only Elizabeth Daly book in the store! Sweet!
And two jigsaw puzzles, one of which wasn’t ever opened!
The Kilvert’s Cornish Diary arrived in the mail this week and the other two books I picked up at a junk store we stopped in. Remember, I mentioned the Kilvert diary in my review of Lord Mullion’s Secret?
All in all a very good outing! Have you read any of these?
