Westport Friends Meeting House

Exciting news update on Wednesday, July 6, 2016:
2,000 records, LPs and 45s, were recently donated by the estate of a local record collector. The records from the collector are in reported to be in "good" to "very good" condition. Some of the LPs have plastic covers over them. The vast majority of 45's have paper sleeves. The Book Fair has also received another 1000 from other donors.
A volunteer who viewed some of them recalls seeing categories of country, pop, early rock ‘n roll, and a big collection of Sonny and Cher. Undoubtedly there are other categories. They will be sold in the Macomber Community House next to the tents and the Meeting House. This sounds like a once in a lifetime chance for vinyl record buffs to add to their collections.
A seeming miracle: from these boxes and poles hauled up from the bunker under the Community Building, volunteers figure out how to erect this tent...logical minds and great teamwork!
Melinda Marsello does last minute pricing...books are still arriving! "Often when I open the cover to price a book, there's one already written in. People keep donating their books back to us and pick up new choices this year."
Melinda Marsello explains the secret of why the Friends Meeting Used Book Fair has a consistently and reliably outstanding collection of books for sale. It's why book lovers claim it's the best used book fair in the land
Paperbacks - 25 cents each and 6 for $1.00 are loaded onto the benches in the Meeting House. Unsold books will be stacked onto the tables under the tents at the end of the day. The weekly Friends Meeting takes place at 10 AM the next day, July 10, 2016!
Books still arriving on July 7; Reuse/Recyle bin - all books not selected to sell are taken by this company which finds other resellers or recycles the books; hundreds of paper bags for shoppers who will need them, having found way more books than they planned to buy. With prices like these, it happens every year.
