The Book Blast is a non-profit, volunteer used curriculum sale held at Community Bible Church in Beaufort, SC. You do not need to be a member of Community Bible Church or of CBCCA in order to be a Book Blast participant. It is free to participate, but you must register. If you wish to sell, there is a $5 fee.
The Book Blast will run on Friday, June 13, from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.
How do I become a seller?
After you register for the conference you can click here to register as a seller. You are not required to register to start entering your items online, but you will not be an official seller until you have registered for the Book Blast.
The last day for people to enter items into the Book Blast system is Tuesday, June 10th at midnight.
What can I sell at the Book Blast?
Our focus is on curriculum. In addition, readers of all kinds, manipulatives, science stuff and educational supplemental materials. Bibles, devotionals and educational aids are also welcome.
Please keep in mind this is not a yard sale, but a place to sell the kind of things YOU will be looking for to use in your own homeschool next year.
Our mission is to encourage all homeschoolers, but keep in mind we are a Christian homeschooling group. We will not be able to sell items that conflict with our Christian values. Please use discretion.
What are the selling instructions?
After you are registered as a seller, books and materials must be properly labeled. We have two methods for labeling items:
Bar Coding Labeling
This system enables sellers to easily track sales. It also streamlines the sale for buyers and sellers. Added bonus? You will get your money back much more quickly!
CHEC Book Blast Instructions 2014
You may also manually label your books. There is an additional 10% processing fee for using the manual system.
