Anyone got an ideas on how to get old magazines?  I have gotten some cheap from library but didn't have a lot.

Ask parents and other teachers to bring them in for you.  Many thrift stores carry them as well.

Do you carry any Brio or Breakaway?

Yards sales or thrift stores may have some.  If you belong to any women's clubs or organizations, you might ask for donations from them.  I know my parents have all kinds of magazines that end up at my house and vice versa.

Just a thought if you have asked any Dr. offices?  I have never tried that, but it seems there are usually way too many, too old magazines at most Dr. offices.

I've seen people giving away old magazines on Freecycle

Library book sales are where I pick up most of mine.  They have them 10 cents to 50 cents a copy.


Also, sometimes I find some at flea markets.


I am looking for more issues of a magazine called Spark! that is now out of print.  I can't even find it on eBay.

Get in with your high school librarian. Ours saves duplicates and old issues to give to teachers - some teachers from the elementary and middle school.  Having limited storage space she can't save every magazine we get so some are used for cutting out pictures, etc.
