Each seller will be given a time to drop off their items for sale. These dropoffs will be scheduled Friday before the sale day. All items are checked to ensure proper labeling and that sets are secured. You will have opportunity to correct any problems. If you bring items for another person you must wait for their items to be checked also.

Sellers will be asked to indicate whether leftover items will be picked up or donated.

The main reasons items are not accepted are:

  • Wrong tags (need MassHOPE generated tags)
  • Items without duplicate tag inside back cover (duplicate tag must be added)
  • Sets not secured with enough rubber bands (rubber bands added)

You will receive a check from MassHOPE within one month for the proceeds of your books less your donation to MassHOPE. You will also receive the tags of the items sold. Please keep track of what you bring and plan to sell. We keep no records of individual items sold by sellers.

DROP-OFF / PICKUP INFORMATION

Friday, June 22th: 12 pm to 4 pm

ALL sellers are asked to come to Chapel of the Cross by 1 pm on Saturday, June 22 to help sort unsold items. Only after ALL items to be collected are sorted, may sellers check out their unsold items and take them. Sellers may have a representative come for them to help in the sort/collect of unsold items. With more help we are able to sort all items much faster and sellers can collect their unsold items more quickly.

I Want to Volunteer

This sale cannot happen without volunteers.  Volunteers (children included) who sign up by June 17, 2024 and volunteer to work are allowed to shop an hour before the sale opens to the public and have first choice of items. It is also a great way to help children (age 10 & up) develop a servant’s heart while learning valuable skills. Most of all, it’s a wonderful way to share in the camaraderie of being part of the group that makes a big event happen.

Volunteers are needed to help receive, sort, distribute, set up, and organize books. We appreciate people who like to make things neat! While we happily accept onsite volunteers, only volunteers who have signed up in advance and are scheduled to work three hours or more are eligible to shop early on the sale date.

We also need volunteers to help man the sale, i.e. helping direct shoppers and assisting those with needs, keeping books neat in assigned areas, helping with the book rest, sorting tags, and assisting with breakdown (from 1 – 2 pm) and cleanup.

Children 10 and up may volunteer with a parent. 

  1. Free AREA
    • General Information

Free Area

Once again there will be a free area. Donations to the free area do not need to be tagged. They do not need to be picked up if not taken during the event.

Please go through your donations before bringing them to be sure they really are usable items. MassHOPE is not a disposal service. The sale is very difficult to manage if time must be spent weeding out useless items.
