AdventureLandBargain BookFair program Provided by Fund Resources, Inc.
Our Adventure Land Bargain Book Fair program is designed to provide an exceptional selection of bargain priced books, gifts and fun things for students to purchase at the book fair. Our selection includes (1) very nice selection of current titles; (2) lots of bargain books priced under $2.00; (3) a few Spanish books; (4) a small selection for teachers and adults; (5) a tasteful selection of gift items; (6) our very popular selection of fun things, including pencils, erasers, bookmarks, and more.
Schools make 25% cash profit on our book fair.Book fairs held and completed in September, January or May earn an extra 3% profit for a total of 28% cash profit.
Since our bargain book fairs are designed to have lots of affordable gifts and books, we prefer to hold our book fairs in conjunction with major gift-giving holidays such as Christmas, Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. However, you are welcome to set dates anytime of the school year that meet your schedule and ours.
Just as a suggestion, most weeks are available but good choices begin the weeks in November and December. In the spring, best weeks are before Valentine's Day, and the two weeks before Mother's Day in May. Another popular week is the week before Spring Break in March.
We serve the greater Houston metro area only.
The Adventure Land Bargain Book Fairs program was started by brothers Paul Sobieski and Steve Sobieski. Both have had over forty years experience in school fund-raising programs, including in-school holiday stores. You'll find lots of extras, such as the use of a cash register and free shopping bags during the book fair.
YOU'LL TRULY NOTICE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU WORK WITH US!
Service and Set-up
All books are loaded on display shelves in rolling metal display cabinets on wheels. It's a vertical fair with great eye appeal instead of a fair spread out on tables and in piles of boxes to unpack. The number of cabinets depends on many factors and is worked out between our staff and the book fair chairperson. Our desire is to deliver as much of a "turn-key" book fair as possible with ample selection and enough depth of inventory to serve your needs!
Metal Display Cabinets on Wheels
Our metal display cabinets on wheels are compact size so the librarian can see over them to monitor the students during the book fair. Because they are compact size, they are easier for the librarian to roll if she decides to rearrange the book fair.
Cash Register on Loan - Shopping Bags Provided
We loan each school a cash register to use during the book fair. Cash register is programmed with your sales tax rate. There are "tax" and "no tax" keys as well. Plastic shopping bags are provided at no charge for students to take home their purchases.
Delivery, Pickup and Re-Stocking
We deliver your book fair in our own trucks with our own employees. Our drivers will roll the cabinets and rack into your library or sales area. We will park the cabinets and racks in place, then set up your cash register and the "fun things" trays. We will go over the operation of the cash register (it's easy to operate) and asnwer any questions we can. Usually, when we leave, you should be able to start selling right away. The delivery date is mutally arranged in advance and is usually sometime during the week before your sale. Pickup after the book fair is also done by our staff and the date is worked out either beforehand or during the book fair.
Fax your order to us by 3:00 pm CST and we'll either (1) deliver it the next morning with our own drivers (Houston metro area); or (2) we will ship it that same day by UPS Ground Service for other areas of Texas (arrival time in those other areas depends on UPS and may not be until the next afternoon.)
