KAMLOOPS - Kamloops Symphony’s semi-annual Barb’s Used Book and Music Sale returns to Sahali Mall Nov. 7 – 21.
This has been their largest fundraiser, held twice a year for over 20 years. The success is due to their highly organized items for sale, whether it is books, sheet music, records or CDs.
“We have wonderful volunteers that come back every year to help us run the book sale, including sorting all of the books and music,” said Kathy Humphreys, General Manager of Kamloops Symphony. “It is easy to find items because they make sure that everything is properly labelled.”
Last year, the book sale had record breaking sales because of the use of space in Sahali Mall. Barb’s Used Book and Music Sale returns to over 5,000 square feet of retail space.
“The use of space in Sahali Mall is ideal,” Humphreys said. “It’s a great location and there is plenty of free parking.”
The fall and spring sales raised a combined $65,000 last year.
Kamloops Symphony volunteers will be accepting donations at the mall beginning Nov. 4, and during the two-week sale Nov. 7 – 21. Shoppers are encouraged to stop in a few times during the sale to find even more bargains, as the donations keep coming in.
