[BHE 181] Quarter Dollar Books at the “Everything Surplus” Warehouse Sale


Fats here.

Every Sunday, we are excited to share books that managed to find their way into our hands and landed straight into our ever-growing bookshelves. This week, I’m featuring book finds that I bought from a warehouse sale. There’s this store called “Everything Surplus” which is a five-minute drive from the house. My boyfriend’s mom told me about the sale – which she found out through her twin sister. I don’t normally go to that store but I’m glad I went that day.

Everything Surplus held a book sale last month, selling books for 25 cents a pop. It’s probably the best deal I’ve had in a very long time. I only paid a total of $9 for my loot that day, which made me a very happy book hunter. =)
