Bernat Handicrafter books and magazines were very popular back in the early to mid century. Crafters could purchase them for as little as 10 cents, up to a whopping 50 cents. Each had numerous patterns and with each pattern there would be directions, many with diagrams, and there would be a list of materials needed, including what type of needles, ribbons, hooks, fasteners, and anything else you'd need to complete the project.
This listing is for 4 Bernat books. They are, as they appear in my photo:
Front row, left:
Vol XV, No. 1, (for men and boys), dated 1945, 49 pages, 41 projects
Front row, right:
Book 22, dated 1949, 57 pages, 32 projects
Back row, left:
Book 214 (sports themes), dated 1974, 37 pages, 22 projects
Back row, right:
Book 174, dated 1955, 31 pages, 18 projects
I will be listing several sets of the Bernat Handicrafter, and may throw in an additional title along the way. I would say they are in very good condition. There may be a fold or two, a dog eared page or two, and I believe just about all have a previous owners name on the cover, but overall they're in really good shape.
Delivery will be via USPS Media Mail from Nevada. Depending on your location, Media mail can take 4 to 10 days for delivery. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $4.95. If you would prefer Priority Mail for quicker delivery, let me know and I can get you a quote.
Alaska and Hawaii buyers will have to email for a shipping charge.
SHIPPING CHARGE INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
