Those books I got at the estate sale

minnie_txApril 21, 2009

These are some of the leaflets that were in the box that I got at that estate sale last week plus 44 other Leisure Arts leaflets

I copied these descriptions from the LA website. The other 44 aren't mentioned on the site anymore so they must be out of print. The $ amt is what they sold for I guess

If anyone wants any just for the postage let me know.

and let me know if there is a LA leaflet/booklet you are missing or looking for.

I haven't gotten around to listing the box of old McCalls Needlecraft mags (the old style large size)

How nice of you, Minnie. I have that last one, Make One for Baby. It has some really nice patterns for afghans in it. I've made 2-3 from the book.

Minnie, are there any more of the leaflets that you are willing to part with, I have most of the ones you listed, and am not interested in the McCalls Needlework magazines.
I love the old stuff, and if you are willing to part with some of it, would appreciate your letting me know?

Shaddy there are 44 other ones but it will tzake me forever to list them the ones I listed are on the Leisure arts website but the others aren't I'll try over the weekend. I really don't want any of them.

This is great and a time consuming task. Perhaps to make it easier for you, why need just group them into afghans/baby/holiday/assorted or whatever and then see what the postage would be to ship 5 or 6. Then, offer them as "bundles" to people and let them be surprised. Just a suggestion to make your life easier.
