A suggestion.......perhaps there could be a column/Forum in the "Trading Post" specifically for trading/buying/selling Mothering back issues? There are a number of collectors out there seeking these - me being one! - and it may be helpful to have those transactions located in one spot!

 

Thanks for your consideration.......Janet G.

Nice idea! I'll put it forth it at our next staff meeting. Thanks!

I just missed getting Volume 2 on Amazon.....it must have come up during the night and was grabbed up right away!!! This forum would perhaps bring those collectors willing to sell out of hiding!!!

I didn't even realize Amazon sold back issues of Mothering!

 

I wonder what my collection is worth...

Yes, they do!!! I've picked about 10 of the 1980 and earlier issues from Amazon. The prices vary tremendously. I paid $16 apiece for a few from '78-79. Then Volume IV popped up for $3!! I recently got 14 and 17 for $13 apiece. There are quite a few from the 80's available as well.

 

I am down to needing 4 of the elusive first 5, as well as #15. For some reason, the 1980 issues are near as impossible to come by as the 1977s. Go figure.

I'm still looking for them for you. Hopefully we'll find those 4 for you eventually. :)

Cynthia, I appreciate it.......I started this quest in March of last year, told myself I'd be happy if I just got a couple of dozen back issues. Then the more I got, the more I wanted, LOL!!!
