Wonderful stories came out of last year’s sale.

  • A man in his 80s took the train from Newark to Princeton and walked 5 miles from the station to the sale and back. The next day he did it again for half-price day.
  • When asked why she was buying 32 cartons of cookbooks (about 900 volumes), a woman said she was opening a restaurant in Brooklyn. The books were used to decorate the walls.
  • Buyers came from Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia; Brooklyn; Greenwich Village; eastern Pennsylvania; and beyond. Why do they come so far? The Bryn Mawr Wellesley Book Sale is worth the trip!
