Anyone willing to mail old Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, Donna Parker or Cherry Ames books?

Can you think of any good sources either on-line or real world?   These books sometimes turn up at antique book fairs but I'm not able to travel the distances involved right now.   I'm interested more in the older books rather than the paperbacks or reprints. 


Thanks everyone!  Happy Holidays!

In the past I've listed and mailed Trixie Belden, Nancy Drew, Five Little Peppers, All-of-a-Kind Family, Ruth Fielding, and Beverly Gray and other vintage books.  They go pretty quickly though!!  I have some Dana Girls books from the '70s to list and some Beverly Gray (I think from the '50s) to list but I've not had the time to list them.  It takes me a while to list these books without ISBNs.  I have a couple of Laura Ingalls Wilder HC books (one illustrated by Sewell) to list.  I don't have any Trixie Beldens or Nancy Drews to post, though I do have a Five Little Peppers Abroad to post again.  I'm going out of town tomorrow for Thanksgiving and then I'll be studying for finals in December, so I probably won't get to posting for a few weeks.

The Dana Girls are all WL'd, so if you want to make sure someone specific gets those, you'd better deal them on here! (I just listed two and they were immediately swiped up and accepted, and I had at least 3-4 PMs on them as well!)

I have paperback Nancy Drew Files on special right now in case you're interested.

Happy shopping!
