 Oldies but Goodies — Our policies for accepting donations

  1. Teaching resources that are still valid and effective, but are not the most recent edition or at the height of their popularity can still bless other homeschoolers.
  2. As our store is small, we reserve the right to limit donations to items which we expect to move quickly.
  3. Appointments preferred — call 310-590-0846 or use the “Contact Us” form to schedule an appointment.

Our Policies for Buying Your Books:

  1. We purchase recent editions in excellent to good condition. All buy-backs are made by check or store credit. 
  2. Email us a list of the books  so that we can research market value in order to be better prepared to offer you a fair price.
  3. Schedule an appointment to bring your books in.
  4. Your purchase receipt will list a grand total only. If you want a receipt listing the price for each item, please bring your own itemized inventory listing on which we can simply mark each price.
  5. As our store is small, we reserve the right to limit purchases to items which we expect to sell quickly.

      “There was the one book in our curriculum that I couldn’t find in ANY library, I refused to do the extensive reading online, and I did not want to pay more than $20.00 for a new book.   Within 24 hours Penny Ross found it online for me for the fraction of the price AND she also offered to buy it for me! This is what I call exceptional customer service! I didn’t have to search online and deal with unknown websites or vendors, I’ll have my book at a great price, and all I had to do was to ask Penny.

      Penny Ross is a fountain of practical wisdom and experience regarding homeschooling.  If you need a complement to your curriculum at a fraction of the price, Tools for the Home Educator is the place to go. Take advantage of it!”

Highly satisfied mom,

Miriam
