"What is all that stuff?"
If you've stopped by the shop to check out our new space or watched the video tour on our Facebook page, you might be asking yourself that question. Well, we've expanded our inventory to include more than just children's books and homeschool curriculum. We've devoted part of our space to stocking overstock and liquidation home goods, toys, baby items, and just about anything else you can think of.
Why? There's a few reasons.
We love bargains!
Both of us (Becky and Tatyana) love to bargain hunt. Thrift stores, yard sales, consignment shops - hunting for deals is fun! That's one of the reasons we opened the bookstore - to sell great books and curriculum at a great price. So when we discovered overstock and return pallets, we were hooked! We love sourcing merchandise and finding great things at a fraction of the retail price and we wanted to have a place to sell our finds, so we dedicated part of the shop to resale merchandise.
Homeschooling is expensive.
We all know this is true. Curriculum is expensive, so we thought it would be nice to have a space where families could find good deals on other items they need or want. Budgets are tight right now, especially after the year we've had and money saved on other purchases can help supplement the costs of homeschooling.
Filling in the gaps.
When do most people buy curriculum? Summer and mid-school year. Our business is mostly seasonal so we figured our little bargain space could help us bridge the time between our two biggest sales seasons. We've got to pay rent every month somehow!
So that's what's going on in our spare room. :) We'll be having some special sales events and posting more of our new products soon, so make sure to subscribe to our email list below or follow us on Facebook to stay up to date!
