We have a great selection of music for guitar and piano (heavy on the guitar). If you play and you're looking for something new, you'll want to check this out. We also put out a lovely selection of children's books. These books would be great for reading to early and middle elementary school children. Most of these books are "like new" and they're priced $1.00 each!

Don't forget the next Bag-of-Books Sale is Saturday, March 5.
