I Hit the jackpot!

pamilyn's picture

Willie and I went to an Estate sale today. While I was in the kitchen looking over cooking stuff, Willie walks in from the library with a Shix# eating grin  on his face and asks me which Fine Cooking magazines I am missing. I told him anything before #36. Bingo....this woman had number 7 through 66 with a few missing. Now comes the good part!! When I asked the woman how much the  magazines were she told me they were free!! OMG...Willie wanted me to leave the ones I didn't have for someone else, but I know most people wouldn't care. Over the next week or so I will go through and figure out which ones I have extra and let you guys know. You pay postage and they are yours. Life is so good sometimes! I also found 8 really cool water glasses for 10.00 for the lot. Very Modern looking. Love them. Have a great weekend everyone!! Pamilyn

Congratulations on your find. If you happen to stumble upon an extra #7, I'm interested. Of course you know we expect you to cook something out of each one and post pictures.

The people who gave us golf and called it a game are the same people who gave us bag pipes and called it music and haggis and called it food.

Cool!  I'm still missing 1-8, 13, 14, 16, 20, 21, 26, and 29.


Great find, including the water glasses! I wish Rod would indulge me on those fun excursions!

How amazing!

If you happen to have doubles of #15, 17, or 19 I'll happily take them off your hands.

O.K.....Here is what I have extra of.   33 through 40, 43 through 50, 54 through 60, 63 through 66, 79, 82, 83, 84. If anyone wants them or knows someone who does want them let me know. I can send them in a priority box through the Post Office. I think it is $10.00 or so for whatever will fit in the box no matter how heavy it is. Don't send me an e-mail I have been having trouble with it. Just post here. Pamilyn

Shucks, no earlier ones.  I guess I wasn't paying attention. :)

I don't have 33-40 yet. Do you have other takers for those issues? Can you email me with your address so I can send you postage?


Thanks

I think that I'm missing 42 for some reason. Would love to get my hands on one if you can spare it.


Maybe we'll find direction, around some corner, where it's been waiting to meet us.
