    I was wondering if any one knew of a web site specifically for selling
    education books.

    I am downsizing and need to unload a lot of my preschool books and magazines (mailbox) that I just do not use anymore. Some are old and out of print but in good shape. I have two shelves and no more so the rest must go.

    Thanks for your help.

    I deal mostly with amazon- I am not sure of any educational sites were you can sell stuff though.

    Do you please have anything that would help me with the FTCE PreKindergarten/Primary Pk-3 exam? I have the Study Guide from the Dept. of Ed., but am really looking for the Sharon Wynne PreKin book, Teaching Solutions, or Secrets study book?

    I just have basic preschool books.

    We are a private preschool in a church.

    I have childhood development, staff development books.
    Lots of books dealing with alphabet activities.
    Mailbox magazines, monthly theme books.

    What about sending them on to other teachers in your area? You could put an ad in the paper saying you have educational books you would like to sell/get rid of. Is there a local preschool or teachers in your building who could benefit from them or be willing to buy them?

    Yes, I use both ebay and Craig's List often. Here is a link to the page on my website that explains how to buy and sell educational items on ebay. Here is another link to my page about how to buy and sell educational items on Craig's List. I prefer Craig's List because there is no hassle of shipping and all sorts of complicated rules etc. Good luck!

    For anyone that uses these webrings to sell products, here's a site where you can set up an online store. I'm going to do this before I send the items out by e-mail, and then include the weblink to them on the store. People can use their credit cards, and see pictures. It was super easy to set up, and free.
