Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

Thanks for spotting the mistake.
A few people have shown interest but the main problem seems to be shortage of shelf space in their homes more than anything.
It will be good to see you but, as yet they're still unsold and here at the office. If they get sold, I'll post here.

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

Apologies for the 'Back-to Back' post but........the super set has been sold.

I now have my bit of space back around my desk and I can get on with other things.
It's a bit of a joke here sometimes because we're always selling books to keep the street animals fed, we sell Hand-Made Cards for each and every occasion, and...........we also make time to sell and let out properties!!

Never a dull moment in our office.

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

Well done Ann... may I ask how much you got for them all?

I have several children's books for sale at 5 TL each. Please see my post on the Side Forum page from about 2 days ago. Thank you. x Angela x

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

I saw your post yesterday and I wish you luck with your sale. I must admit we normally only have the very occasional call for Children's Books during the season, and then it's often a sweet 'Puppy Dog' type book that's needed.

As you know Angela, our books are also sold out @ 5T.L. each to raise the cash for animal foods and sterilisation but many a time, ex-pats will take 5 or 10 at a time. I even have a Turkish doctor that comes about 4 times a year, he'll choose anything up to 30 because he takes them for his foreign patients in the hospitals that he's attached to and, anyone buying 'in bulk' gets a good discount.

The system's worked for the last 11 years from the office here in Side so we'll stick with it as long as I'm here each day.

The Cat-Fund received good money from this series of books and it's especially welcome at this time of the year as there are not so many buyers about as during the summer months.

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

If you have any of the old Ladybird books e.g. Gingers Adventures they go for quite a sum on ebay. I bought Gingers Adventures for my grand daughter (as I had read it so often to her father) and had to buy a 2nd hand copy and paid over £10.00. for it, or something in that region !

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

Well, I have just over 400 books to offer at the office just now but, not a Ladybird amongst them!
If ever a Ladybird comes along, I'll P.M. you and at 5T.L. it would certainly be a bargain.

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

Wow those are great... probably you can find a buyer for them by contacting one hof the half a dozen boutique hotel owners in Bodrum, or somewhere perhaps a little more remote, or even in Greece...but its a treasure not to be given up...

Re: Fabulous Classic Book Collection

''Murder on the Orient Express' was written by Agatha Christy in the Pera Palas Hotel in Istanbul....maybe they would be interested...

Or maybe the British Council would be willing to make a donation to the Cats Club in return for a bequeathment of this iconic collection of British literary heritage...because they certainly would be in a position to know an English teaching school, or library, or other establishment, that would welcome the colllection.

Or maybe if you contact one of the villa rental companies on the web, they cold offer it to their members, who are holiday villa rental owners, and might like to have a fine collection of holiday reading for their guests...

Thanks for the tips, all good and something I'd never thought of but, if you read my post #15, you'll see that they've been sold.
