2 Huge Used Book Sales in Calgary – May 2017 – SAS Crossroads Market
Yay! It’s that time of year: spring, when the severe cold goes away and two of my favorite events of the whole year happen. Two huge book sales are held, both of which offer participants the opportunity to support worthwhile causes.
Servants Anonymous Society of Calgary
SAS of Calgary is having its 15th Anniversary Book Drive and Sale on May 5-7 and May 12-14, 2017, at the Outpost Tent at Crossroads Market. You can donate books up to May 1st.
From April 10 to May 1, from 10 AM to 5 PM, you can donate books at the Outpost Tent at Crossroads Market, 1235 26 Ave SE, Calgary (at the Junction of Blackfoot Trail and Ogden Road SE).
Best sale for vintage books!
From my perspective, this is the better of the two sales to find vintage book treasures! They have loads of them in a special spot in the back right corner, and Dave and the other volunteers are there to help. Here are some of the vintage gems I found in previous years at the SAS Crossroads Market sale. (My posts for them are here and here.)
Here is a map of where Crossroads Market is, just southeast of downtown Calgary:
The proceeds from this book sale help SAS provide great supports for vulnerable women and their children. Visit their website to find more information about their compassionate work, programs and impact on at-risk women.
For more information about the sale, email Servants Anonymous at firstname.lastname@example.org
