Have some church, clubs, group type ones I never look at. Also Jack Bailey's "What's Cookin'" 1st edition 1949. Emcee of radio's Queen for a Day. Fun reading. I have 2 copies, so don't need one.

Oh boy, I may join in here, too! Got way too many cookbooks and when I want a certain recipe, guess what? Can't find it!

We need to hold up any sales until we find out more from Dave. Sorry (but of course it would be fine by me)

For now, you can at least swap cookbooks; I know I have a lot I should sell.

OK - thanks! I have some packed up for the antiques market we're doing this weekend at the Fairgrounds, but here is Jack Bailey's What's Cookin'. World Publishing Co, first published April 1949. Small, hardbound 7 1/2" x 5 1/4" 187 pages. Tight and sound, but bumped corners. Inscribed with names from one neighbor to another "who sure knows his cooking." Fun reading, narrative type cookbook. He was a funny guy. Anyone here old enough to remember "Queen for a Day"? I know someone who was on his program and she blurted out at the end, "where's my prize." That's how old I am!
$3, plus $2.38 media mail in a padded envelope.

Our Visiting Nurses Association is having their annual book sale at the Fairground too this weekend (as well as a big gold show going on in still another building.) Lots and lots of people there today. The lines to get in the book sale finally tapered off after 2 pm so I strolled over to that building to take a look. Oh My. Still tables and tables of cook books left. Sunday all books will be half price so I'll go back again.
Lots of cacti and other gardening books too. So hoping some will still be there tomorrow.
Anyone here collect the Pillsbury Bake-off cookbooks? I have to check mine and see what years I still need, as they had lots of them at the sale. I know I still need No. 1, but have most others - but some I need a better condition copy.
One of my favorite bake-off recipes is the chocolate cake/cherry pie filling one on the cover of the 25th bake-off. What an awesome combination of flavors.

Hi Harold,
If no one else has purchased your cookbook, I'll buy it. Let me know and I can send payment and my address.
Thanks,
Mike

It's been over 2 months; what's the status of this proposal? Can we sell cookbooks here?

You can arrange between you anything you want for now as long as you understand that eventually Dave would get a cut in the future. I don't want a cut of anything. Enjoy yourselves. As all that will change down the road a bit.
