Books for Sale!

I'm trying my very hardest to downsize some of my collections so that I can move my office to a corner of my bedroom so that my kids can have their own rooms. They still share, and it's getting to a point that, although they could continue on, I'd rather they each had their own space. I love my house, but it is not big and this causes problems for those of us *ahem* that have a hard time getting rid of things that might be useful someday. Like craft books.

These are all wonderful books that I've thumbed through many, many times, seeking inspiration or entertainment or enlightenment. But I have lots more of these very types. I went through each section of the crafty books that I love and forced myself to offer some to you. I'm pretty proud of the stack that I'm willing to let go of. And happy with those that I decided to keep. But I'm immediately posting the ones for sale so that I can't change my mind!
I've priced them all based on the current used market on Amazon and Thriftbooks. So you can certainly go get them from someone else. Or, you can help my sweet daughter get her very own room so she doesn't have to share with a stinky boy anymore.

I'm only going to have these available to you for a week. After that time, I'll probably donate them to my local library's used book section.

Please contact me via email (beth@heartstringsamplery.com) with the titles of the books you want and include your address. I will then calculate media mail rate to your zip code and work up an invoice on PayPal.

In order to save time, I'm not going to post pictures of each book. I will instead embed a link in the title to the same book online, so you can go see what it looks like/contains.

First up, some magazines and an old pattern, all in very good/like new condition. They have been shelved flat, so they still look very nice, and contain so much goodness inside...

$5 each:

Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly Volume 52
Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly Volume 53
Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly #58
Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly #59
Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly #63
Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly #78


The rest are all books, and will be priced individually.

I'm going to move all of the books that have been sold down to the bottom of this post. Just so I can still have the info for myself, but to keep all of the currently available together at the top. Thank you all so much for your amazing response to this sale!

Is there a source of what is included in the S&NWQ issues?
