2017 NWACHEA Used Book Sale – Friday, June 2

Please note: ALL volunteer shifts for the 2017 Used Book Sale are NOW FULL.

Mark your calendars: the NWACHEA Used Book Sale is scheduled for Friday, June 2, 2017 at Mt. Comfort Church of Christ at 3249 W. Mount Comfort Rd. in Fayetteville

You DO NOT have to be a member of NWACHEA to participate in the book sale as a buyer or seller.  There is no entrance fee to shop.

Sale hours will be Friday from 3-7 p.m.

Sellers will drop off books on Thursday, June 1st, from 3-5 p.m. and pick up unsold items after the sale ends on Friday, June 2nd.

Volunteers will be able to shop Thursday, June 1st, from 5-7 p.m. before the public sale on Friday.

 

SELLING BOOKS: 

If you wish to sell books, you will need to purchase pre-printed labels that include all of the information required for the sale. Labels are $3 for a set of 50. Your books must be marked with these labels to be placed in the sale. If you wish to purchase labels, please contact Amy Calhoun. Deadline for purchasing labels via mail is Friday, May, 26th. After that point, your only option is purchasing and labeling at the church between 3-5 on June 1st during the drop off times.

If you have NWACHEA labels left over from previous years, you may use them until they’re used up – but please let Amy know that you are planning to sell books this year, even if you don’t need to buy any labels.

Drop off for sale items will be Thursday, June 1st, between 3 and 5 pm.

After the sale, unsold books are to be picked up at the church between 8 and 9 p.m. on Friday, June 2nd.

If you want to place books in the sale but are unable to pick up on Friday night, please make arrangements for someone else – a friend, neighbor, someone from your church or homeschool group? – to collect your unsold items. If you are absolutely not able to be at the church between 8-9 p.m. Friday and have exhausted all options trying to find someone else to pick up your items, please check with Amy Calhoun when you register as a seller, to see if it’s possible to arrange a time / location later that weekend.

Any items left after the sale will be donated or disposed of at NWACHEA’s discretion, unless alternate arrangements are made in advance. 
FEES:

NWACHEA will retain a percentage of sales as follows:

Volunteers who work “critical” shifts: Thursday 2-4 pm and/or Thursday 3-5 pm and/or Friday 7-9 pm – 5%
Volunteers who work Friday 3-5 pm and/or Friday 5-7 pm – 10%
Non-volunteers – 20%

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!  Please note: ALL volunteer shifts are NOW FULL.

We must have enough volunteers to complete tasks in a limited amount of time, in order for the sale to operate on schedule. The 3 times slots listed (above) at the 5% commission rate are critical. If you do not have a preference, please consider volunteering for one – or more – of those. The Friday 7-9 p.m. shift is particularly crucial.

There are a limited number of available slots in each shift.  If you wish to volunteer, please sign up with Marni Hendrix.

Please note: ALL volunteer shifts are NOW FULL. Volunteer times/tasks are:

* [NOW FULL] Thursday 2-4 p.m. (marking chair locations, stacking chairs, setting up tables, sorting/placing books) [NOW FULL]
