why would anyone buy a book titled 'trout fishing in America', unless they were planning on going trout fishing in America? Even if it was only .50c. I doubt it would have made it into my trolley.

It's actually a very famous book, a counterculture classic ... and i was familiar with the author, Richard Brautigan, having read a fair bit of his poetry.

Seriously, grab it off eBay. It's a great read and you'll knock it off over a weekend.

It's amazing what you can find. Years back, i found a copy of the Malleus Maleficarum, tbe medieval handbook, for witch hunting in a Salvos.

That was a very good day.

Wow that book was almost as famous as the bible!
So disheartening about all that witch hunting and extermination of anyone that posses the ability to be physic.
This took away a lot of ability for people to survive by having that "hunch" about life's situations. It's how our instincts for survival from our ancestors have made us come this far.

I think that those that did escape any extermination within their family, have been able to keep that talent from generation to the next.
But sadly, that physic ability is being lost to lack of trust in oneself, or listening to that inner feeling.....too much tv, distractions, homework, and face in the smart phone!
Like music, or dancing, one has to practice and keep on keeping on for it to survive.

I once went to the medium, Kerri Kulkens, and she said, in the mid 1400's, I was buried alive or walled off for witchcraft, because I grew medicinal herbs that healed....now I wonder if that is the reason I can't even grow parsley in this life!

I have never been a big believer of 'past lives'. I believe, this is the life, and savour it, there will never be another you.

Herbalists, midwives, wise women, counsellors, hell even women who gave the wrong man lustful thoughts. Dangerous times.

I often wonder at the wealth of knowledge that was wiped out through the burning times, Certainly Culpepper's Herbal borrows heavily from folk knowledge so much of it did survive. Think that was written in the 1600s?

I bought my daughter a t-shirt that says "We are the granddaughters of the witches you couldn't burn". She loves it.

An op-shop. A second hand shop run usually by charities. I think you call them thrift shops?

The thing about Australians, Seth, is that we take the first syllable of a thing and whack an 'ie' or an 'o' on the end and call it a word or a name. It makes us indecipherable to the rest of the planet but nonetheless, we tend to be pretty pleased with ourselves about it.

Lol ...

Yes, thrift shops - charities

For profit - pawn shops or second hand stores

There's a clothing store called New To You where you can give your used clothes, but you get a credit when they sell that you can use in the store.

Maybe you need to see the clothing to see what we mean, some things are like new, just stored only, for instance, in a oppie in Toorak, a $600 jacket for $60, probably only worn 2 hours if that.

Then you can wash it (I usually hand wash for extra care), or dry clean if it needs to be dry cleaned (but I never bother with dry cleaning articles....too much chemical).

I buy some amazing things like the Genie Bottles which they wouldn't have a clue about it's value on Ebay.
But I have found, a lot of the oppies are now getting in valuers and I have noticed a mark up with certain items.

Also, shops closing down and liquidating or whatever, (I know, it's sad to see that when someone is having a go at a shop business)....well, these things go to the op shop for resale at 1/10th the price.
All new with tags.

Oppies are surprising, like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to find.
