What A Quarter Can Buy You

Filed under: Thrifty Finds — Laura R @ 8:18 AM


A trip back to childhood and simpler times


and even “autographed.”

This bathmat is in unused condition and was a yardsale discovery .

I saved posting it until October to celebrate Henry Winkler’s birthday. (Oct 30)
 In college I sent him birthday greetings ( we were both much younger then)  and received a card back in return.
 I was cool then.

I still have the card and when I remember where I safely have it stored hope to share it with you all.

  2. I suggest you keep your Fonzie things. In time they probably will be priceless. He was very popular at one time.

    • I will keep them, and this one too shall be put away in a safe place. I think even my son will appreciate this treasure.

  6. I loved the Fonz, but Chachi was more in my age range, so I had a crush on him instead. 🙂 Very cool find for a quarter~! 🙂
