    So I've decided that I would really like to get my hands on ALL the past SB collections, if possible. I think they're nice little cookbooks and I cook from the three I have SO much! I just think it would be really fun to have the whole collection :)

    I'm wondering if anyone knows when the Season's Best collection were started? I'd like to get a ballpark idea of what season/year I should start looking from.

    So far I have:
    S/S 01
    S/S 02
    F/W 02
    S/S 03
    F/W 04
    S/S 05
    S/S 06
    S/S 07
    F/W 08
    S/S 09
    F/W 09

    If you have some gently used past season's Season Best recipe collections that you would be willing to part with I am interested! TIA! :chef:

    I have all starting in 1994, but for duplicates I have some 2001 on handy I believe. They are in my tote in my truck since I just had them out to sell at a Kids Fair. I'll bring them into work and send you a list of available ones. Give me about 2 hours.

    I have just about completed my collection of Season's Best - but need a 1994. When I get home, I will email you my list of duplicates. I have achieved my goal with the help of Ebay and managed to find just about all of the ones I needed on there - never paying more than $5.00 for a lot of 3-5.
    I am still looking for old catalogs. I now have all after 2005 - but am looking for some from the late 90's and early 00's. Does any one ahev any old catalogs?

    Thanks! That would be great if you could send me your duplicate list!

    Curious- what season/year do they date back to? :D

    I have found a few on ebay as well so far and got a steal on a few from the early '00's for under $1/piece!

    1994 is the oldest. Mine aren't in front of me, but somewhere around 1996 or 1998 they changed from "Hostess Selection" to Season's Best.

    The Pampered Chef Favorites and Favorites II are also the same size and very good...along with the garnishes book and a few others.

    I know I have an extra Favorites II around from the outlet awhile back.
