* I Get By with a Little Help From My Friends

The Cow and Friends Photo Gallery

While there are plenty of books posted on Kijiji, few sell quickly if at all there.

What was I to do?

I had an ah-ha moment. Gotta savour those and remembered Lee, a web developer that I've worked with on many projects, had built a nice bookstore for his sister and she was selling online. So with some help from Debra from Trylinski Books, I was able save a ton of time and trial and error and get great advice about best bets for selling online.

Looks like we'll try selling on I also have the books on display at the front and hope to attract impulse buys when folks pick up other Kijiji items.

Cover of White Trash Cooking
Some of the books people donate for the cow sale are great. Some are downright unusual - anyone interested in a copy of White Trash Cooking (cover is no longer pristine like this one - it's dogeared, frayed with a few crinkles but it could be considered a feature and in keeping with the book's theme?).

Hi Darlene,

I am glad to have been of help. I hope that your book sales on do well. Merry Christmas and best of luck in the new year raising funds to buy more "cows".

Debra -- Thanks for popping by and for your best wishes. It would be mooore that I can hope for - funding a whole cow with book sales, especially as I haven't found the time to post them yet. LOL. I'll get to the posting, soon ;-)
