Quarter Sale–Closed Tuesday

News from the

Pennsylvania Curriculum Exchange

Due to the impending snow storm and the Governor requesting no unnecessary travel on Tuesday, I will cave in and close the store Tuesday. I plan to be open again Wednesday 12-6 to continue this awesome sale of quarter books. 😀  We still have thousands left.

Thanks!

Quarter Sale with **SPECIAL HOURS**

News from the

Pennsylvania Curriculum Exchange

It is time for another quarter sale, where everything in the Bargain Section (6,000+ books) will be 25¢ per book!

However, we have “weather” due to arrive on Tuesday, so I am going to extend the hours for the sale as follows:

  • March 13, Monday 12-6pm
  • March 14, Tuesday 12-6pm (we WILL be open regardless of snow)
  • March 15, Wednesday 12-6pm

Each item in the bargain section will be a quarter (25¢). Sets of books are 25¢ per item. This includes books from my bargain area from the topics of math, science, history/geography, language arts, Bible, homeschool helps, old edition BJU and Abeka, and lots and lots of readers/novels .

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. 🙂

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).

I will be accepting consignments. (I take them year-round, no exceptions.)

If you’ve got them, bring your cloth supermarket bags–they are ideal for hauling away all your goodies. And I take donations of plastic grocery bags if you’d like to recycle them with me.

Thanks!

News from the

  • This is just a head’s up that our next Bargain Section Quarter Sale is scheduled for March 14-15. I will send out the details the week before.
  • We are open for regular hours this coming week, but no appointments will be available until after March 6.
  • This is THE best time of year to bring consignments in–they will be on the shelf ready for the peak shopping of spring/summer. You don’t need an appointment–just bring them in during regular hours.

Consignment Policy Change

News from the

Pennsylvania Curriculum Exchange

 

Consignment Policy Change:

After this quarterly payment (5/6 of you will have received checks already–I will get these ALL out before Christmas), I will be switching to annual payments. That means I will mail a check to consignors once a year (Oct-Dec) for those accounts over $25. As usual though, I will know your balance at the end of every month and am happy to pay you in cash if you come into the store (this is actually easier for me–so feel free to ask every time you come in if you want.) If you prefer to just have the money left on your account and not mailed, let me know, and I will change the status on your account to a hold. Unlike other consignment shops, your money never ‘goes away’ after a certain amount of time even if it doesn’t meet the mailing threshhold. If I choose to close the account due to inactivity (2 years with no sales) I will mail you whatever’s in it as long as you have more than $4.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. It’s basically due to growing pains. With 722 active accounts, it is just taking me too long to mail checks quarterly. Some day when I grow up maybe I will get the whole kit and caboodle computerized. 🙂  Until then it’s done by hand.

We wish you and your family a blessed Christmas season!

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. 🙂

This sale will be Tuesday September 13 and Wednesday September 14 from noon to 6pm.

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).

You are welcome to park on our lawn, but please don’t leave the engine running–it kills the grass. If you need to run some A/C for the rugrats, please grab a piece of pavement.

I will be accepting consignments. (I take them year-round, no exceptions.)

If you’ve got them, bring your cloth supermarket bags–they are ideal for hauling away all your goodies.

Thanks!
