Bizarre bar­gains at Book Bazaar

POST Newspapers - - Community News -

If you have in­sa­tiable read­ers in the fam­ily, a visit to the Book Bazaar in Shen­ton Park is a must.

It is burst­ing at the seams, with thou­sands of ad­di­tional sec­ond­hand books ar­riv­ing each month.

Run by Paraquad In­dus­tries, the bazaar re­ceives books from the State Li­brary as well as pri­vate donors.

They are sorted and priced to sell quickly.

Fic­tion, bi­og­ra­phy, for­eign lan­guage, health and his­tory are just a few of the cat­e­gories. There are also chil­dren’s books, graphic nov­els and mu­sic.

An­dres Guz­man, who has worked in the Book Bazaar for three years, loves to guide new buy­ers to their favourite sec­tion.

Mar­jan Mostaan, the store su­per­vi­sor, says they are pre­par­ing for the busy Christ­mas pe­riod and many cus­tomers pop in on a reg­u­lar ba­sis to see what’s new.

“Vol­un­teers and sup­ported work­ers to­gether keep re­fresh­ing the ta­bles and shelves,” Mar­jan said.

“Valu­able col­lec­tors’ items turn up fre­quently and are dis­played sep­a­rately.”

The Book Bazaar is open Mon­day to Fri­day from 8.30am to 4pm.

Its next big sale day is Fri­day, No­vem­ber 16, 8.30am to 5pm and Satur­day, No­vem­ber 17, 10am to 2pm, when all stock, in­clud­ing rare items, will be half price.

It is help­ful if buy­ers take their own boxes on sale day.

The Book Bazaar is in El­lis Grif­fiths Drive, off Selby Street, just north of the new round­about and there is plenty of free park­ing.

To be­come a vol­un­teer or for more in­for­ma­tion, phone 9381 0193 or email Richard­son won with a mea­sure af­ter the fi­nal bowl of the fi­nal end, beat­ing Gwenda McIn­tosh, Celia Bakker, Sue Har­ris and Margie Wells.

The plate went to Wendy O’Mee­han’s team of Ali­son Tilt, Jen­nifer Will­mott and Bev Davis.

On Satur­day, the men’s 3 blue team con­tin­ued its win­ning form with an­other vic­tory, this time over Cam­bridge.

Divi­sion 4 gold also had its first win of the sea­son, de­feat­ing Wan­neroo. Un­for­tu­nately the 2 red team went down to Warn­bro 72/79.

On Satur­day, the ladies’ top team recorded its first win of the sea­son with a good vic­tory over Mor­ley 44/22. Divi­sion 3 pink went down in a thriller against Mt Pleas­ant 32/34.

On r i nk o ne, Mike Hatch’s team strug­gled to a 29/9 de­feat and Rob Camp­bell’s team also strug­gled to a 28/12 loss.

Glen Morey’s team fought hard but lost the last three ends to go down 18/14 while on rink four the “gun” team led by Dan Byrne played very well, win­ning the last three ends for a 24/22 vic­tory.

The fi­nal re­sult was a 7-1 win to Yanchep.

The sixth divi­sion side starts play­ing this com­ing week. pre­mier team had a good 5-1 win against Wan­neroo.

The other two teams just need a lit­tle more prac­tice.

The ladies’ mid-week pre­mier team had a 5-1 win against Gos­nells and both di­vi­sions 1 and 2 had good matches but didn’t man­age to bring home the ba­con.

Mem­bers are re­minded that fish and chips are avail­able from 5.30pm on Mon­days.
