Dilemma -

What to do, what to do?


Oh, what should I do
with a 10 inch stack
of these....
They're lovely old magazines and I really do wish I had space to keep them, but I don't.  Does anyone have any ideas of what I should do with them?

Sell them on ebay or donate to your local stitchery society.

What fantastic magazines! Surely there is someone in your area that would love to have them. Is there a sewing shoppe or quilt shoppe where you could ask if someone would like to buy them? What about a historical society those magazines are 90 years old. We have a library sale here, maybe there is something like that near you.

I'd suggest bundling them into groups by year and offering them up on EBay. I'd love the chance to bid on them and use could use the proceeds to buy something nice.
Hooroo,

Hide them in your suitcase.....you probably only need that one or two times a year.

Now why don't you use them in your collage work they would make lovely new greeting cards journal pages to swap just what a creative gal needs. Linda

These look wonderful! Is there a needlearts society in your area? A stitching class at a local school? A library who would like them?
Well, if there's no luck donating them, you could always swap them. I'm sure there are many people who would like to have them.
If there's tatting in them, I'd love to have them, or a local tatting society would surely be interested.

All I can say is that you should keep them my friend...they look amazing. I think you would be sad if you gave them away.

Thank you for your sweet comment you left me the other day...my teeth are doing ok...but really once this is all over I will be doing a happy dance. oxxo

You could sell those on eBay and fetch a nice price for them.
Scan yourself some of the interesting things for collage work, then sell the originals.
That gives you cash to fill the space where the 10" of magazines sat with some art supplies!

XXOO~~♥

You could mail them to me, I can mail you some postage. Or just keep them, they are beautiful. You got to keep those. MMMM thats all my ideas. :)

I'd Freecycle them. You'd find a delighted taker, I have no doubt.

karen said...

Well I don't have space but I still keep mine, i would never part with them and I also have tons and tons of them!!

Jackie said...

Sorry to be repetitive but I think the ebay Idea is a good one.

Have you come to a decision yet?
I think these are incredible - if I were you (even when I grow up!) I would probably keep a few for prosterity and give them to friends who would adore to share them with you. Selling them for the money! well money is not everything is it after all!!!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog. You know I, too, would like to be me when I grow up.
Hugs, Suzy

Oh Mary Anne, I would kill to have those! My suggestion would be to sell them on Ebay. They go for 5 - 10 dollars each here in the US at flea Markets.
