Instead, they were selling antique/vintage books, and it was all for charity! It’s just too bad that I didn’t have any money right now, cause it would be nice to say I owned one (they said they’d be back in October, I plan on checking them out then for sure).
Keep reading to see a few more pictures and some more details.
Most of the books were hardcover, and a lot of them didn’t have title/summary info, and none of them had dust jackets, so they included a leaflet with a brief summary and some information on the author, so you can get an idea before you buy.
The charity is called Tell Me a Good Story, and here’s some info from their website to give you an idea what they’re about (you can also click here to visit their website, this will also have info on when their next show is – right now it’s talking about the one I just went to, since it’s still ongoing until 6pm tonight):
"Here at Tell Me A Good Story our primary mission is to encourage people to have person-to-person, face-to-face interaction, and to experience the mental, physical, social and educational benefits that this type of interaction provides. As a means of doing this, we teach people how to research, document, preserve and share meaningful stories.
We promote this storytelling activity by discussing a methodology we call ‘Hands-On Show & Tell,‘ and by sharing information on how to research, document and create a story. To learn more, click on the following page links."
