Homeschool Curriculum & Materials Sale { with linky! }

Hey there friends and welcome!
I'm just taking a brief respite from my "From Sea to Shining Sea" cross country  travel chronicles to post a  variety of educational supplies and resources that are for sale. I've cleaned off my shelves after 14 years of public school teaching and 12 years as a homeschool Mom!
We're heading into our last year as a homeschooling family and since I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, I'm able to determine only those items I'll truly be needing for one more school year and books ( there are many!) that we need to keep because they are sentimental or milestones to us.

 I still  have four shelves  to sift through as well as bins of manipulatives...so please come back;  more sale items will definitely be added.

 I so be appreciate all of the homeschoolers, unschoolers and brick and mortar schoolers who are stopping by. I  hope  you  see a title or a set here that appeals to you AND  if you're a new visitor, I do hope you'll become a regular!

Here are the pertinent details for the sale:
1. Please comment here or send an email to campfiresandcleatsATgmail.com
 if you'd like to purchase something or if you have a question about items.

2. I'm sorry, but I can accept only cashier's check or money orders as payment.


3.  I have the world's best blog readers. However, in the past, I have sent items out before receiving payment...and then, well ...never received payment. Sooooooo, I have to be really cheese-y and request that payment be received before I head out to the PO with your purchase. Sorry about that.

4. When an item is sold, it will be marked as such right here on the blog.

5. Prices do not include shipping. When you've decided to buy an item, I will contact you with the final cost of your purchase....just a couple of dollars more, if that, to cover mailing fee.

6. To my blogger friends who are linking up: Thank you for joining! And please include a link back to this original post.

Please let me know if I neglected to mention anything important here and please  visit the lovely bloggers who've linked  curriculum - related items too!

Okay, well, Happy Shopping!!
