Boo Boo Books

Every year at the AQS Quilt Show and Contest in Paducah, Kentucky,  there is a very special event, just down the street from the Expo Center, that is one of the bargain Mecca of quilters everywhere. We call it the “Hurt Book Sale.”  However, I think of it more as a “Boo Boo Book Sale!”  The books aren’t really hurt very badly. There might be a bent corner here, or a scuff mark, there….but, they are unused, unread, and ready to take a place of honor in any library.

The sale takes place at the historic Finkel building on Kentucky Avenue within walking distance of the Expo Center. Free shuttle buses are also available.  Admission is free. You’ll find more books than ever before, some up to 80% off. There is even a $1.00 sale table.

Hours are:

April 24-28, 2012

  • Tuesday 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
  • Wednesday – Friday 9:00 am to 6:00 pm
  • Saturday – 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Don’t miss out on finding your own special bargain treasure!

    Wish Boo Boo internet sales were available with S&H charges. I would definitely purchase books. Can’t zip over to KY from northern MI that easily.

  • Carol says:

    I agree with Bernadette and J Rose. I will be in NH, but love to shop for books!

  • Jay says:

    Texas is a little far too!!! Internet sales are a great suggestion!

  • Yvonne says:

    New Zealand is even futher!! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be there. Never mind my guess is it would be just a big hassle to start packing those poor “Boo Boo”books into bags and posting around the world. Much easier to put ion a table where folk can see what they are gettting. Maybe one day I’ll get there!!!
