Description: Bidders will note that lot(s) with very low Staring Bids & lots where the per item cost is $1-$5, should in no way see those Starting Bids or per item cost of $1-$5 as the Book Barn's judgment on the value of the item(s) contained in the lot(s). We have been in the Used/OP book business for 30+ years & have a LOT of inventory, with more piling up weekly. (Sometimes it seems to us that books breed at night, so there are always more of them over time!) These low Starting Bid/low per item lot(s) are meant to lower our inventory by providing bidders the opportunity to buy material at a low prices—we call it the "Eek" price; as in "Eek! That's all in sold for?" Our lack of storage is your opportunity to buy material at a low price.
