Bookbinder’s Yard Sale This Saturday April 4th!

Here are the particulars…

Taurus Bookbindery 2736 16th street  
Saturday April 5  from  9:00 -12:00.  

If you have equipment  or materials that you would like to sell please make arrangements with Tim James (tim@bookbindersmuseum.org) at least three days before the sale or just show up the day of the sale and  set up on the sidewalk in front of Taurus Bookbindery.

If you are bringing things to sell to benefit the Bookbinders Museum I will help pick up, advertise, load and unload.

If you are selling things to benefit your self or another organization we will offer you the space for free but you will  need to bring tables, do your own loading unloading, AND CLEANUP.  We will not store anything that was not sold to benefit  the Bookbinders Museum Anything that is left on the premisses will become property of the Museum or trash.

To be fair to everyone we will have no early sales

If you are donating material to The Bookbinders Museum tax receipts will be given. If you are bringing things to donate on the day of the sale we ask you to have a list of things you are donating, along with  your name and address. These sales tend to be  hectic and we will not have time to properly inventory gifts  on the day of the sale. Receipts will be sent out within one week of the sale.
