I doubt anyone on here that has a copy would be willing to part with it - it's pretty hard to find! Your best bet is to keep checking eBay, AbeBooks etc.

Now that's a coincidence — someone in the For Sale forum has just posted about offering a hardback copy of At Seaside Cottage on eBay: www.enidblytonsociety.co.uk/forums/view ... 84#p300792

It was a nuisance. An adventure was one thing - but an adventure without anything to eat was quite another thing. That wouldn't do at all. (The Valley of Adventure)

My price was quite a conservative estimate! I have seen copies on eBay go for around £45 so wouldn't pay much more than that myself. patience is a virtue on eBay I've discovered!

And you did put a + sign after the 60 so that means £120 is technically included, being more than 60 :lol:

I saw another one on ebay yesterday - for around £125 but that has also gone today! Shows how sought-after it is!

Simply try "At seaside cottage", and then sort the results out. The more information you add, the higher is the probability that one piece of information isn't added to the bidding and therefore sorted out.

I just type 'Enid Blyton - at seaside cottage'. Sometimes do a search in 'antique and collectable' books and sometimes not.
