Why 5 Nov?

I don't think you will be able to make any money from them tbh.
If they are fairly recent you could give them to your local doctors or hospital to put out for patients whilst they are waiting, better than throwing them out.

No, sadly not. I make awesome fairy cakes though, just like my granny used to make with me.

I found it hard to sell decent magazines for 99p on ebay, so dont know how your gonna sell that lot.

70% of those magazines are either about new creams, how to apply creams, or adverts for creams.

Problem is also postage , Glamour and Vogue are quite heavy and to post would mean that buyer pays more than what magazine is worth

This seems to be the only option so far

Recycle in the safe knowledge that maybe someday a stranger will be wiping their bum with your old magazines. oO

Doctor`s surgeries and hospitals have stopped putting out magazines since the outbreaks of C Diff, MRSA, Syphilis, Ennui etc...

My doctors and local hospital still has them in the waiting rooms, there is one emergency doctors who has stopped allowing them but still have a large selection of paper leaflets scattered on a table in the middle of the seating area which seems to be a bit ridiculous - if you can read leaflets surely you can read magazines.

I sold a whole load of Club, Razzle and Mayfair to the local sperm bank, can't work out when they find time to read them they looked too busy for coffee breaks?
