SAS Crossroads 2015 Book Sale logo - sshot fr websiteThis 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, crafts, etc., at the Farmer’s Market before they close at 5!

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.  I hope you’ll help out this organization that supports women at risk, and find some great books!
