Raised $3615 for the library this weekend at our quarterly Frend's Book Sale. The last two sales' results were rather lackluster, so I had a new idea to promote our sale. We decided to give every grownup a free book and two books for every kid! We used books were duplicates or in categories we didn't have enough room for. We set up a pop-up in the parking lot and gave out tickets at the book sale in the library's Community Room.
For three hours, DH and I manned the booth and interacted with people in our community. So much fun! We told everyone who wanted more than one book that they could buy it for the same price as inside ($1.00 for big people books, .50 for little people books). We pulled in an extra $47.50 that we wouldn't have otherwise, and got to a great total.
I just found out the total this evening, so I'm counting it for a win today. Tired, but very happy.
