The Crossroads SAS Used Book Sale starts May 7 2015!
Mark your calendar! The book drive started two weeks ago for the Servants Anonymous 13th Annual Calgary Book Sale and you can still donate gently used books until May 4th at the tent in front of the OutPost Tent at Crossroads Market, just off of Blackfoot Trail at 1235 26th Ave SE, Calgary.
I just called their office and they assured me that anyone can come by to do some advanced buying at the Book Sale KICK-OFF on Thursday, May 7th, from 3 PM to 8 PM.
The sale goes from Friday through Sunday for 2 weekends:
May 8 – 10, 2015, 10 AM to 5 PM, and
My 15 – 17, 2015, 10 AM to 5 PM
This is one of the highlights of spring! I have supported this sale for many years, and always enjoy the friendly volunteers, and seeing what’s new. This is an opportunity to browse thousands of books, categorized by general subjects and by fiction genre, and to get a great deal (that supports a good cause). There is plenty of parking there (at the Crossroads Market, 1235 26th Ave SE, Calgary) and it’s worth coming early so you’ll have time to visit the booths of fresh veggies, meats, etc., at the Farmer’s Market!
I recommend shopping with a wheeled traveling or shopping bag-–it’s great for avoiding sore arms from carrying around a pile of heavy treasures and “possibilities”. I will be heading straight for the special gated area with the antiquarian, rare, and just-plain OLD books in the back right corner!
Here are the details of the sale from their website:
