Selling off all of my duplicate BSC books!
by Becca (rainbowgirl28)
at February 20th, 2012 (10:22 am)

Hi everyone! My husband is getting laid off, and since our housing is provided by his work, we need to move in less than 2 weeks! 

Unfortunately, because of the time crunch, I am only taking PayPal. I am really sorry, I know that doesn't work for all of you. I promised him that whatever I didn't sell here would go in a big lot on eBay or given to charity. He's really tired of taking a massive stack of duplicate BSC books with us when we move. 

I will ship for free within the US if you buy $10 or more worth of books, otherwise you pay shipping. I am happy to ship overseas, but be warned the shipping gets really expensive (they recently raised rates). Let me know if you want to see my feedback on eBay/Paperbackswap/Bookmooch.

I don't have time to take and post pictures of everything, but if you're curious about what some of the foreign covers look like, let me know and I can probably find links to pictures. I am happy to answer questions about the condition of specific books. 

This is long, but read through the whole thing, there are lots of goodies

Friends Forever - COMPLETE SET, includes both specials. All in Good condition. $20 and free shipping in the US. 
California Diaries - COMPLETE SET. All in Good condition. $20 and free shipping in the US.

UK editions (text changed to British English, different covers than US editions) - $1 each, they all have wear, ask if you want a more specific condition.  
1 (2 copies), 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 20, 40, 43, 72, 101, SS4, BSLS 11, 

Folio Junior French editions (these are the French ones that were sold in France with really awesome covers, unique artwork)
Une vengeance pour Claudia - $3 very good condition
Mallory et la malle mystérieuse - $3 very good condition
La nouvelle aim de Claudia - $3 very good condition
La rêve de Jessica - $3 very good condition

Italian editions - These have unique artwork, some of the best of the foreign editions
 - #6 Kristy alle noose della mamma - $3 very good condition does not include the tattoos
 - #7 Un'estate movimentata per Claudia - $3 good condition, does include tattoos

French Canadian editions (Heritage jeunesse) - These are basically the same artwork as the US editions, just a different border around them. 
 - #6 Christine et le grand jour - $2 good condition
 - #7 Cette peste de Josée - $1 light creasing on cover, a bit more on the back cover
 - #10 Un amoureux pour Anne-Marie - $1.50 Good condition except for a random barcode sticker on the cover.

 - M3 Marjorie et fantoms - $1 Creasing on cover
- SS5 Les baby-sitters en Californie - $0.50 Heavy wear and creasing to cover. First 1/4 or so of book has wavy pages, probably from water damage. The book is all readable, there's no obvious staining to the pages or anything like that. 

Videos - I have decided to sell off my entire BSC VHS collection :( I haven't watched every tape. They all _look_ fine… Many have unique artwork that may be by Hodges (it's certainly in the style of the books) that was not used on the books. You should be able to see what they look like by googling them. 
They are all $1 unless listed otherwise.
#1 Mary Anne and the Brunettes - 2 copies of the yellow Goodtimes edition, 1 copy of the blue Kidvision edition
#2 Dawn and the Haunted House - All 3 copies are the Goodtimes edition, but two are lighter pink with a black border around the artwork, and one is a darker pink box with a blue border.

#4 Kristy & The Great Campaign - 2 copies, both Goodtimes editions
#5 The Baby-sitters Special Christmas - 1 Goodtimes edition, 1 Kidvision with heavy wear to the box $0.50

#13 The Baby-sitters Remember - 1 Kidvision edition 
Bonus - One empty box that was a double feature of #6 and #7. I was sad to find that the tape inside did not match the outside! FREE with any order. The box is fairly beat up. 
The Movie - 2 copies of the VHS tape in the plastic case. $0.50 each.

How much would shipping [in the U.S.] be?

Posted by: Becca (rainbowgirl28)

I will ship for free within the US if you order over $10 worth of stuff.

If it's less, the shipping depends on the weight. A single book might be around $2. Media mail starts at $2.47 for less than a pound, less than 2 pounds is $2.89. less than 3 pounds is $3.31... it's really not too expensive.

If you wanted like $9 or so worth of stuff, I would just charge for shipping whatever it took to round the total price up to $10. So if you're ordering less than $10 worth of stuff, you won't pay more than $10 total.

Yup! It looks like shipping will be about $2.29, and the book is 50 cents, so if that is the only one you want, send $2.79 to paypal@polevaultpower.com

If you see any others you want, the shipping would only increase a small amount.

Thanks!

Oh wow, I did not realize you were in Canada. Let me refund the money you sent me and recalculate the shipping cost...

Shipping to Canada should be $3.60, so it would be $4.10. If you're still interested, go ahead and send that amount, otherwise let me know if you want to cancel.

I'll take the $1 Mystery #30. Paperback, right?

Also, how on earth did you end up with so many of every book???? Makes me wish I still needed more, I paid way more than what I'd pay for these to finish my collection.

Years of picking up extras at garage sales, thrift shops, etc!

Shipping should be $2.29, so if you send $3.29 to paypal@polevaultpower.com it's yours!

Ooooh, I'll take all four of the Folio Junior books!

I need to check my collection to see if I need any other books.

All right, may I also have 89, 113, 120 and 129? Thanks!

Great! Let's see, $12 for the four Folio Juniors, and and $5 for the other four = $17 + free shipping if you are in the US. You can send that amount to paypal@polevaultpower.com and I will get them out tomorrow!

Oh my lord, you have so much stuff that I want and can't afford. :P I definitely want the two Italian books, how much with shipping to postal code L8K 4J6 in Ontario, Canada?

And, just so I can talk myself out of it, how much would it be with shipping for those and the school editions (BSC#3 and LS#1-6) and Karen's Adventures?

Restraint is hard... Thanks!! ;)

Posted by: Becca (rainbowgirl28)
Posted at: February 21st, 2012 06:17 pm (UTC)

Shipping to Canada for the two Italian books looks like it will be $4.90.

I should be able to ship all of the books you mentioned for $12.55, first class mail (too many for a flat rate envelope). Canada is cheaper than the rest of the world, but still not cheap.

Posted by: Ashley in the Sky with Diamonds (chicken_queen)
Posted at: February 22nd, 2012 02:16 am (UTC)

Eek, $12.55 + books is a little rich for my blood, but I think I can manage the two Italian books. So that's $6 for the books + $4.90 for shipping, correct?

Posted by: Becca (rainbowgirl28)
Posted at: February 22nd, 2012 05:13 am (UTC)

Yup! So that would be $10.90 to paypal@polevaultpower.com and I can get them sent out tomorrow. Thanks!

I'd love California Diaries #'s 12, 13, 14 and 15! (#14 non-library copy)
Stacey's Book and Dawn's Book
Box Sets #1-4, #5-8 and #13-16
Everything Changes (shiny cover)
Graduation Day (light crease on corner of cover)

That would bring my total to $13.50, correct? Can you just let me know where to send the PayPal payment over to? And thanks so much!

Posted by: Becca (rainbowgirl28)
Posted at: February 21st, 2012 06:47 pm (UTC)

Yup, $13.50 as long as you are in the US. You can send it to paypal@polevaultpower.com
