Opening Day Ticket Purchases
Opening Day for 2019 will be announced in September. Tickets will again be $25 per person.
The sale begins at 10 am sharp, and check-in begins at 9 am. We recommend that you arrive at least 30 minutes early to check in. See FAQs under the Annual Sale tab for more book sale details.
We use PayPal for all online transactions. You do not need a PayPal account to use it. Multiple tickets may be purchased using the drop-down menu.
THERE ARE SOMETIMES SHORT DELAYS AS WE POST THE PURCHASE BUTTON. Please be patient and do not email us if it does not immediately work – give us 30 minutes …just in case. We cannot move your position in line based on issues with PayPal’s code on our website.
Every buyer gets into the four sale rooms in under 2 minutes, meaning that the person at the head of the line has no real advantage over someone at the end. With so many books to choose from, you’ll always have a vast selection.
No one will be admitted to the Sale without a ticket in hand, including children. We do not recommend bringing anyone under the age of 14 to Opening Day due to the volume of books being moved by buyers.
Customers may not take carts, strollers, and other wheeled vehicles into the sales areas at any time during the sale. (Wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility-assisting devices are, of course, permitted. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make prior arrangements to facilitate your attendance.)
Some purchasers remove piles of books from the tables to review in private. Please understand that piles of unpurchased books left unsupervised will be re-distributed onto the tables, giving everyone a chance to see them. It’s up to you to keep an eye on your book selections. Also, due to fire regulations, no objects of any kind may be left inside the fire door areas, demarcated by blue tape on the floor. This includes boxes, books, and coats. This law will be strictly adhered to.
