Betty Crocker Pie Cover Cookbook

Just a head's up -- this cookbook is very collectible, and always a good find for eBay (or for your personal collection).

It is known as the Betty Crocker Pie Cover Cookbook because of the pie chart diagram on the cover. This book is 1972, and was made with a Sears tie-in (even more collectible).

This book (eBay Item number: 360117936888) is currently at $49.99 with bidding still open. I'll let you know how it does!

Update 12/30/08 -- book sold for $59!

Favorite of the Week - Genuine Copper Vintage Christmas Card

It is a wonderful 1920's - 1930's vintage art deco design of a mission church bell. Really beautiful - and really unique! I bought this card as part of a big box lot of ephemera from a Texas estate. I have many more vintage cards (Christmas, Valentine's, Easter, and more) to list in the next month or so.

You'll find this card - and all my others - at the link below:
