I am housecleaning. Over several years of buying box lots and collections I have accumulated a pile of used Albums. There are Scott Albums, Minkus Albums, Single Country Albums which, for the most part, are in reasonably good shape. I haven't had the heart to throw them out or to recycle them for the paper but I have no space. They weigh a ton and would be expensive to ship but I am perfectly willing to give them away to anybody that can use them for the cost of shipping.

Feel free to contact me if you want a list of what I have and see if there is anything you might find useful and what can be arranged.

08/21/2013 - Thank you all for your interest. My backlog is now disposed of.

It has been an interesting exercise. I still have all the albums and would dearly love to give them away but shipping costs are enough to scare off potential takers. I mean, would you want to fork out nearly $30.00 to have a good used, though not perfect, Scott Volume II Worldwide shipped to you? No? I probably wouldn't either.

I wonder how much potential business Canada Post loses yearly just because shipping small parcels is so terribly expensive? UPS isn't much better, particularly on Cross Border stuff which often gets a significant brokerage fee slapped on. How can, for example, Amazon get away with free shipping? I could go on and on and on but it is a pet peeve of mine that Post Office charges today are set to discourage rather than encourage individuals from using the Postal System whether you are talking letters or parcels. Who sends a 100 Christmas Cards at nearly $0.70 cents each any more? Business discounts must be huge!

Oh well. I tried. By the way, I now live in Okotoks, AB. It's a town just south of Calgary and if there is anybody in southern Alberta or, in fact between Regina, SK, and Victoria, BC, who might use them, contact me and we might be able to arrange free delivery. These cities represent our travel limits and plans for August.

Might be best to list albums on eBay, with a "pickup only" option...I have used this for heavier items impossible to ship at a decent price for the value of the overall item, ie: a dining table-chair set.

I have a question, these are empty used albums right?
