The Dayton Book Fair is back! Our doors will open Friday at 9 am for our 50th Annual Sale. Admission wristbands for Friday are $10 each and good for coming and going all day Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, admission is free, and Sunday is “bag day” all the stuff you can get in a paper grocery bag for $7.50 (and we’ll supply the bag!).
On Monday, stop by one last time for Clean Sweep. Between 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., pay one dollar for admission and take as much stuff as you want! Bring boxes!
We have a limited number of shopping carts this year, and they are in sad shape. Feel free to bring your own carts and wagons to help you in moving your books. Keep in mind that on Friday we provide a “dealer corral” where you can leave your books to be totalled up and packed in boxes.
This year’s figurehead is Harriet Beecher Stowe and we have a considerable number of her books as well as books on abolition and slavery.
Be sure to check out our Silent Auction, which ends this year at 4 p.m. on Saturday. Lots of interesting and unusual titles. You can view the catalog here.
This year we’ve brought fifty tons of books to the sale, separated into 80+ categories. You are welcome to bring scanners to check for book values. While we do scan books ourselves, we have a very high floor and you are sure to find all kinds of great deals.
