Ottobre Updates

issue 6/2007

We all thought that the children's winter issue from 2007 was totally sold out, but a few Dutch and Finnish editions were found and we have them. If you missed out on this issue and want a copy, we have them. Just keep in mind that they are not in English. Accomplished Ottobre aficionados don't seem to mind - or so I've been told by several foreign language edition purchasers. They are not on our website, so contact us directly or go to our ebay store.

Also......... we just got word that the newest issue - the children's winter 2010 issue will be in the mail tomorrow! Scroll down to see that one.

Inspirations 68 - Preview

We just received a newsletter from Country Bumpkin with some pictures of the next Inspirations magazine and a link to a "flippy" as they call it. The link will flip through some of the pages of the magazine to give you a peek at what is coming up in this next issue.

Looks like a great issue to me. I've already got my eye on the elephant blanket shown in the 'flippy'.
We are expecting this issue to be released later this month or possibly early next month. If you want to pre-order a copy, just let us know.

Inspirations Rare Issues

We just got hold of about 35 of the very oldest, rarest issues of Inspirations magazine. Some of them sell for as much as $60 on the Country Bumpkin website - others are so rare, they are no longer available anywhere.
Just a minute ago, I finished listing them individually in our ebay store at a fixed price. The least expensive is listed at about $14 and the most expensive is just $29.95. You blog readers are the first to know, so if you are looking for an older issue, check out our ebay listings.
