Knitting Book Sale! November 23, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — crazymonkeycreates @ 12:34 pm

I’ve gotta make room for some other stuff, so I’m offering up some knitting, spinning, weaving books for sale. I’m listing anything new for half its cover price. Shipping via Priority Mail in the US, $4.80 for the first book, $2 for each additional. Please ask for international shipping, and I’ll price it for where you are. I have 2 Starmore books, both listed at 1/2 of what Amazon wants for them. All books are in good condition, no rips, tears, or dogeared pages, unless noted. If you’re interested, send me an email at christy at crazy monkey creations dot com. If you know someone who would be interested, send them over to my blog.

I am not willing to ship media mail. For one thing, it means finding an appropriately sized box, and I will end up passing that cost on to you, as I do not currently own boxes of the right size for mailing books. This means that the end cost for shipping is about the same as priority, and the mail gets there much more slowly. Priority shipping is my preference because I can get the boxes for free, it’s a reasonable shipping price for what you get, the items get to their destination quickly, and PayPal lets me print the labels directly from their site. Paypal is my preferred method of payment, and I do take credit-card funded transactions. Since I’m only charging you for the first pound ($4.80) and books weigh more than that, you’re still getting a deal.
