Hello,

I’m new to this forum for a post that is. Been checking other posts a lot for a while now.

But I was wondering if someone can help me with my search for the boxed set of 3 miniature books of The Father Christmas Letters, HarperCollins version.

Hope someone can help me with this.

Thanks!

Hello and welcome! This is a pretty rare one, so it may take some patience to find. I haven’t been keeping track of these since January, but they do come up every now and then. I watched online (saved searches on eBay, AbeBooks, Amazon, etc.) for about a year before I found mine. Then a few weeks later I saw another (cheaper) one turn up. So all I can say is stay vigilant.

I bought myself a set on eBay a few years ago - they show up occasionally (a few sets per year I would say).

The ISBN is 0261103172 if you want to keep an eye out for it on Abebooks or similar multi-listing sites. It is long out of print, but just in case a third party seller lists it, here's what TCG sees...

That's a great picture Arbor!

Here's mine from last year (need to add a few more copies acquired, and I love including the puzzle idea too. I have a bunch of Bodleian cards/advent calendars I could put in there as well).

Your pic inspired mine. Oh the advent calendar, I only have one version and didn't think to add the cards.

Actually, COVID allowing, for Yule time I will try to place FC exhibits in 2 local libraries, so needed two of these and the puzzle for the exhibits.

Thanks. I already knew the ISBN number. I can dream it from searching the web for a copy 😀
