Going-out-of-Business Sale

All Books Discounted 50%

Over the next several weeks we will be shelving thousands of fresh-to-market books in all categories.  Some of these books have been in storage for as many as 10 years. We are amazed at the quantity and quality and are constantly surprised at the gems that are surfacing from hibernation!  What were we thinking..  allowing them to sit in boxes all these years?  All must go now, before we are gone.  We are shelving as many as we can each day.  Come visit and find a treasure for yourself!!!

When the kids were small we watched a lot of Nature DVDs... They Loved It! Now that they are teenagers we want to expose them to the incredible history of our country and of the world.

We make an effort to watch TV as a family and are looking for appropriate material. While we cannot afford to buy these films new, we would pay what you would expect to sell them for at a yard sale or we could trade for some of the wonderful books we offer in our store.

We are looking specifically for the PBS "American Experience" and Ken Burns Documentaries, but will certainly consider any quality production. Historical and Literary Dramas need to accurately depict the era in which they are set and demonstrate quality cinematography and acting. A short list of titles we seek include:

"Anne of Green Gables", "Silence", "Matewan", "The Name of the Rose", "Far From the Madding Crowd", "Dunkirk", "The Sting", "The Battle of Algiers", etc.

This list is just the tip of the iceberg, but should give you an idea of what we are looking for.

Stop by with you DVDs and Bluerays. Let's Make a Deal!!!

Kindest Regards,
Ted Canaday

Starting today, Canaday's Book Barn in Carlisle, Pa. will be liquidating their entire stock of bargain books to make room for renovations. Our loss is your gain. Fill a standard size brown paper grocery bag (you provide your own bags) for only $5.00. Buy 5 bags worth of books and get a 6th bag for free!!!

This sale will run until the books are gone. Hurry to get the best selection. Dress warm (coats, hats, gloves) as there is no heat in the bargain section.

We will accept cash only for these bargain sales, so come prepared.

Our Closing Sale in the main Book Barn will run as normal, so plan on taking advantage of 50% off of our inventory of over 70,000 books. (VISA, MC, Discover and Debit accepted for these purchases).
