If you’re looking to score some last minute Christmas deals, or if you’re a teacher, homeschooler, or just a book lover, you’ll want to carve out some time to hit the Scholastic Books Warehouse Sale in Auburn.
I have to confess I almost forgot to remind you about this one-it runs today, tomorrow, and Saturday-through December 20th, so make plans now if you want to go.
These events are hosted by Scholastic, and you’ll find new, overstocks as well as, “Scratch and dent,” titles. Now, these used to say they were just for teachers and book fair volunteers, but the wording now includes school volunteers and homeschool groups. I’m pretty sure you fall under one of those categories! It’s very unlikely anyone will ask you, in any case. I’ve been several times, and I’ve never had anyone ask for any kind of id or information.
You can go here for more information, or to preregister and get a coupon if you want to do some serious shopping. The address and hours are below. Note that it’s very much a, “Warehouse-y,” area. They usually have a sandwich board out.

There isn’t an Olympia area event this go-round, but I’ll let you know if they have one in the future.
If you go to either of these, or if you’ve been in the past, feel free to leave us a comment and let us know how you did!
