Announcements By Month
Northwest Arkansas Christian Home Educators Association
Mark your calendars: the annual NWACHEA Used Book Sale is scheduled for Friday, June 1, 2018, at Mt. Comfort Church of Christ, 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, May 31st, from 3-5 p.m. and pick up unsold items after the sale ends on Friday, June 1st.
Volunteers will be able to shop Thursday, May 31st, from 5-7 p.m. before the public sale on Friday. No other early shopping is permitted.
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, 25th – meaning your label request must be in Amy’s hands no later than Friday (if you’re mailing it, please do so by Wednesday, at latest). After that point, your only option is purchasing and labeling at the church between 3-5 on May 31st 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, May 31st, 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 1st.
If you want to place books in the sale but are unable to pick up on Friday night, please make arrangements for someone else – perhaps 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.
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! Thank you to those who have volunteered … all slots are filled at this time!
We must have enough volunteers to complete tasks in a limited amount of time, in order for the sale to operate on schedule.
Volunteers have access to early shopping on Thursday, May 31st, from 5-7 p.m. before the public sale on Friday.
Volunteer times/tasks are:
Thursday 2-4 p.m. (marking chair locations, stacking chairs, setting up tables, sorting/placing books) This volunteer shift is now full. Thank you!
* Thursday 3-5 p.m. (setting up tables, sorting/placing books) This volunteer shift is now full.

* IMPORTANT: While NWACHEA always aims to be family-friendly, please do not bring younger children during the above shifts marked with an asterisk. Volunteers will be moving heavy furniture, carrying large boxes, and sorting books, and they cannot safely do these things with little ones in the area. Supervised childcare is not provided for book sale volunteers.
Once again …
