Any Ideas?



I am clearing out things around here. A lot of stuff I brought home from my office when I retired. I don't know why. It's not like I'm going back to work in that field. I've collected local phone books since 1976. Well, I didn't really collect them, I just didn't throw them away. I think I'll call the museum tomorrow and see if they'll take them. Any other ideas? I know, I could just take them to recycling.

If you don't preserve them for historic value, some quilter may want to use the pages for foundations for paper-piecing.

If it is an entire collection then I am sure the museum will be interested. If not then recycle!

Sell 'em on eBay!
There's a collector out there for everything!
