Kamloops’ biggest sale of gently used books, music and more is set to return this spring.
Celebrating its 25th year, Barb’s Used Book and Music Sale will run from April 15 to May 6, and all funds raised will go towards the operating expenses of the Kamloops Symphony.
This time, the fundraiser will be open Wednesdays through Fridays from 12 to 6 pm, Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm, and Sundays from 12 to 4 pm. It will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Most items at the sale will be available for $2, and shoppers are encouraged to visit multiple times, as there will be new items on the floor each day.
For those wanting to get first dibs on the books, CDs, DVDs, vinyl records and sheet music, there will be an exclusive early access event on the morning of April 15.
Ticket holders will have the opportunity to skip the line on opening day and enter the sale at 9 am, one hour before the official public opening.
Only 50 tickets are available for this Early Bird Catches the (Book) Worm event, and they can be purchased for $25 here.
Donations for the sale will be accepted April 10-12 from 10 am to 4 pm.
Donors are asked to come in the front door and be aware that volunteers on-site are unable to provide physical assistance.
Magazines, encyclopedias, textbooks, VHS tapes, cassette tapes and dirty, tattered books will not be accepted for donation.
The semi-annual fundraising event was spearheaded in 1997 by Barb Corbishley, who was one of the Kamloops Symphony board members. After her passing, the sale was renamed in her honour.
Barb’s Used Book and Music Sale will once again be held at 444 Seymour St, nestled between Nutters and The Big Little Science Centre.
