Hello boys! I need some help, and I have a beautiful collection of mostly new, unused books to sweeten the pot!

We are still going through the storage locker my husband inherited, and we have this somewhat big collection of like new books we would like to sell so we can continue paying for our painting class for kids in our town.

I have tried selling these here, and either the price was high, everyone has most of these, or well, no love for the Great War…Nah. Can't be that? Whats not to LOVE about Gas, the first Tanks, Flamthrowers, Machineguns, The Red Baron, Airplanes, and Mel Gibson in that WW1 movie?

All joking aside, I have here well over $450 USDusd worth of very nice books and the Panorama Box sets(those are $90 USDusd each, and we have both the original and the updated set included. These were never even looked through).

We would like to offer this entire collection for $100 USD plus shipping. I will certainly include tracking. To sweeten the pot, I will offer my painting services for $50 USD worth of paint work on top of these fine books.

My husband does'nt have an interest in the Great War, or he would have these on his book shelves. The storage locker in LOADED with books that were, as far as we can tell, NEVER even looked through. The local library has turned us down on donating these and the Korean War books. Have you ever heard of a LIBRARY turning down new books?

We would like someone to enjoy them. I have looked all over the 'net and I can find no place to take them(local, at any rate.) So what I would like to do is give someone alot of enjoyment and in return help some kids continue having fun painting figures, which, btw, will be posted on our site. We have mostly been painting Blood Bowl figures, but my husband has had the idea of making small warbands for SAGA, as the kids are having a great time PLAYING games!

Anyway, take a look. Help us if you can.

I will consider offers. It is for the painting class, and if an offer is not an insult, thats fine. Like I said, my husband would have kept the collection is he had interest in the period.
