Congratulations to Pam! She is our "Guess What I Paid" contest winner! She guessed the closest at $17.50. I paid a grand total of $1.20 for this book at my local Goodwill. I had to look through a bunch of old smelly books to come across this gem, but I really got a steal!! Thanks to those who played along and took a guess! :)

Happy Spooktober!! :) Everyone ready for Halloween? Any ghosts or ghouls out there wanna win some sweet little...I mean....spooky scary.....Halloween stickers and a $10 gift card to my Etsy shop???? All you have to do to be eligible to win is guess what I paid for this book::::::
It is a first signed limited 1999 edition of Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes.
It is signed by Ray Bradbury, Joe Lansdale, and Peter Crowther.
It includes pages from Ray Bradbury's screenplay for Disney with notes and corrections.
This is the inside of the book jacket...when I saw the original price...I couldn't believe it. Needless to say...I did not pay that much for it!!!! :) I'm a picker (of the vintage/antique/weird junk variety... although I have picked a few guitars, never any noses). In other words....I'm cheap.
Since I did not get this from a high-end book store and it's been around for a few years, one thing is missing. Like the tray case it came in originally. Also....it is a little weird that it is not actually "lettered". I've had a tough time trying to valuate this. I usually buy things to resell, but this is one thing I will probably hang onto! I love that it has Bradbury's signature.
So....anyone care to venture a guess as to how much I paid for this??? Step right up folks...write your guesses in the comments section below. The person who guesses the amount closest to the actual price I paid wins a $10 gift card to my Etsy vintage and scrapbooking shop and a set of these spooky scary Halloween stickers (click on the pic to get some more info, pictures of the stickers):::::::::::
You have until Friday Oct 5th at noon (Eastern-New York time) to guess the price. I will be announcing the winner Friday evening on this blog and on my Facebook page . I ship around the world so my international friends are welcome to play along! Good luck and have fun!
