Where can I buy old Gourmet magazines in Montréal?

Hello everyone, I am a HUGE FAN of Gourmet magazines (although I admit I only own 2 of them, the 1985 July was (and still is to this day) my favorite mag when I was a child....so much that I still have that old rag of a mag and a mint copy of the same issue. I also have a 1990 mag as well. I've searched high & low to find more old issues in Montréal, but alas cannot find any.
Does anyone know where I could purchase some in Montréal?
PS: I'm not interested in ordering from internet or going outside of Montréal.
Buying no idea
But if you want to consult them, you can always go to the Grande Bibliothèque on Berri, they have old issues dating back to at least 1982 to read on site.
You can also try joining Freecycle and put up a want ad. Someone might be trying to free up some space.
I live in Orange County, CA and our library system has used books stores connected to the library. The book store contains old books and magazine donated by library patrons. I always see old cooking magazines that people donate for $1 to .25. That is something you can check out in your area.
Also epicurious.com contain all recipes of Gourmet and Bon Ep.
There is a used book store in the strip mall on Sources Boulevard that did have some last summer. It is the same mall where McBay's is located.
I always remember seeing old Gourmets at this church bazaar: Nearly new boutique, every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at St. George's Anglican Church, 1105 Stanley St.
Probably a good idea to check to make sure it is still going on. Many congregations have a shortage of volunteers nowadays.
