Buy Australian!

This months window is not about books but about a small booklet. 
Its the new Ausbuy list of Australian owned businesses, just released.
This handy little book lists all the foods that are owned and operated in Australia and they exhort us to buy just $50 a week in Australian owned goods from our shopping list.   If everyone did this we would wipe out Australia’s deficit.
 I have tried to place a range of goods from Australian owned companies that are also made in Australia and sourced from Australian ingredients.
I couldn’t put a packet of white sugar on display because although we grow sugar here we no longer own any of the processing plants.
Be Australian – Buy Australian!

You just never know!

You just never know what "treasures" you may find at a second-hand bookshop.  Thousands of people will tell you stories of how they were looking for a certain book and then came across something totally different which they just "had to have".  Sometimes it's what these people "do" with what they find that makes another interesting story!

This is a wonderful little video about a Poster from the Second World War entitlted "Keep Calm and Carry on" that was found in a box of old papers and posters at a Second-Hand Bookstore in England.

Watch and enjoy how this poster was resurrected and has become so popular that it has been reprinted and people are collecting it and framing it to hang in their homes in the 21st Century.

Keep the fact in mind that maybe you too, will find something fascinating and worth framing, when you visit Rainy Day Books.  You'll always find "treasures" here.
