I am joining Jessica over at Shower of Roses for her 2nd annual curriculum blog hop! Each of us will have a list of curriculum that we are no longer using that we would like to pass on to other families that may need it. Each person’s list is independent of Shower of Roses and may have different policies, so please read each one carefully.

Everything I am including comes from a smoke and pet free home. Also, everything is used unless otherwise mentioned. Prices do not include shipping. Please leave a comment with your preferences and I will email you for your address and shipping preferences. I will ship either media mail (for appropriate items) or priority mail. When I email you, you can let me know what you prefer. Please do not forget to enter your correct email address in the comment form so that I can reach you. Rest assured that your information will not be publicly shared.

I will do my best to list anything out of the ordinary about the condition of each item; but keep in mind that everything has been used before; and therefore, it’s all in used condition. So here goes…

I have three cookbooks:

1. The Frugal Gourmet Celebrates Christmas – in great condition! I’m not sure if this book has ever been used. It includes more than just recipes. He also includes Chanukah and Christmas in other Cultures. This book retails for $25, I will sell it for $8.

2. Southern Living 1994 Annual Recipes – in great condition! I’m not sure if this book has ever been used. The cover does show a little wear, but the inside seems close to perfect. It includes every single recipe from 1994, plus tips, charts, and tips. The party planner in the back has not been used. $8.

3. Baltimore Orioles: Bird Feed (Produced by the Baltimore Orioles’ Wives) – in good condition! This book has never been used, but the binding was never really done properly. Some of the pages don’t look like they are the same size, and they stick out slightly farther than the cover. The inside however is great – the pages aren’t used. The book is called “Bird Feed” and was put together by the Orioles Wives to benefit their charities. The forward was written by Polly Surhoff (BJ Surhoff’s wife). The 1999 book includes recipes from names you will remember: Amaral, Arias, Baines, Bancells, Bishop, Bones, Bordick, Clark, Conine, Crowley, DeShields, Ebel, Fetters, Flanagan, Hendricks, Horsman, Hunter, Johns, Johnson, Kamieniecki, Kison, Manfra, Miller, Murray, Mussina, Orosco, Perlozzo, Reboulet, Rhodes, Ripken, Snider, Surhoff, Thompson, Timlin, and Wren. $5

Lastly, I do still have the Mickey Mouse collection of geography/country books I had last year, please see the post here to see the titles available.

I am getting ready to move, so I have a lot of things that I’d like to send to other people’s homes rather than pack and unpack. So I intend to do a few other posts with other kinds of items (Creative Memories, figurines/horses, stuffed animals, dolls/lithographs, toys, etc.) during the week. Please come back and see if there’s anything else to make you or someone special smile. I am happy to hold items until the end of the week to save you money on shipping. Keep in mind that all of these items can ship media mail, but none of the other items will qualify. As items sell, I will come back and make notes on this post to keep you up-to-date. Thanks for looking!
