Query first to confirm availability and reserve one or more items.  Most items are single copies and are available subject to prior sale.  We will ship as soon as we receive your personal check or money order; or you can pay via PayPal <http://www.PayPal.com> if you prefer.  Missouri customers must add 8.6% sales tax.  Our address information--including our web site where many `more books and other materials can be found--is listed below.

A word about shipping: We typically ship smaller packages (under a couple of inches thick) in bubble padded envelopes and use double-bubble on the ends and edges and/or often use cardboard reinforcement on ends and edges inside a padded envelope—although we have seldom had problems, it seems that more issues are being reported. So, we will start using boxes for individual books or packets of materials that are more than 2.5 – 3 inches thick. This is a little more expensive, but we value your business and want to try to ensure that your materials are received in the same shape they were in when left our store. If you have consistent problems with rough treatment by your local sorting center or carrier, let us know and we will make special efforts to give you secure packaging. If the delivery time is an issue of concern for you, we are always happy to quote and send via “Priority Mail” at the going rate for that service.

If you are not receiving this weekly "reverse auction" directly, but would like to do so, just drop us a note in that regard and we will take care of it.

Thanks for your interest!
