Emergency Quarter Sale!

News from the

Pennsylvania Curriculum Exchange

I normally run the Bargain Section 25⊄ sales every six months…and the last one was only two months ago. But we are BURSTING at the seams already. There are more books in there now than before the last sale! So there is nothing that can be done except do it again…NOW! So here goes…

Each item in the bargain section will be a quarter (25¢). This includes more than 6,000 books from the topics of math, science, history/geography, language arts, readers, Bible, homeschool helps, and old edition BJU and Abeka.

quarter

This is a great opportunity to stock up on educational resources. For a quarter, it’s easy, for example, to buy a science book and cut it up to use the pictures for a lap book–no guilt involved. :-)

The sale will be THIS week: Tuesday and Wednesday, June 23 and 24,  from noon to six pm, and Saturday, June 27, from 11-2. No appointments please.

In addition, I’ll be drastically reducing the price of all dictionaries (English language only) and SAT prep books–the ones that are as big as phone books. I have about a MILLION of each and I am desperate for some inventory reduction on these items.  The dictionaries will all be $1 (Children’s first dictionaries up through collegiate level). The SAT books will all be $2.  Every SAT book I sell goes with the current version of the SAT test (2005-2015). There is just no need to buy these new for the usual $20-$34 price tag.

In case this helps for planning purposes, in previous sales early in the day is busier and more crowded than later.

Young children are always welcome in the store, but if you have an option to not bring them this week–it would probably be safer for them ;-)  (I’ll be temporarily removing the play area this week since it’s in the bargain section and there is just no room if we add in people, too).

Feel free to bring along consignments–this is a good time of year to drop off your completed stuff.

Hope to see you next week!

It’s that time of year again, when we need to thin out our overflowing bargain section! Each item in the bargain section will be a quarter (25¢). This includes about 6,000 books from the topics of math, science, history/geography, language arts, readers, Bible, homeschool helps, and old edition BJU and Abeka.

This is a great opportunity to stock up on educational resources. For a quarter, it’s easy, for example, to buy a science book and cut it up to use the pictures for a lap book–no guilt involved. :-)

The store will be open Tuesday and Wednesday, April 21 and 22,  from noon to six pm. In case this helps for planning purposes, in previous sales early in the day is busier and more crowded than later.

I take consignments year round, so feel free to bring them along. This is an excellent time to get your stuff in and on the shelf since it is the beginning of the homeschool shopping season!

I’ll send out another reminder on Monday. Thanks!
