Independent Bookstore Day Bags

Roz Chast bagsIf you are celebrating Independent Bookstore Day on May 2, 2015 and would like to order canvas bags to help promote it, the deadline is this Saturday, October 25.

The canvas bags feature art by Roz Chast and can be imprinted.

Eileen Dengler, director of the New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association says, “The bags will serve as an important marketing and publicity tool for Independent Bookstore Day, help fund Independent Bookstore Day, and contribute to each bookstore’s bottom line.”

Bags wholesale for $7.50 each to bookstores participating in Independent Bookstore Day on May 2, 2015 and must be ordered in increments of 20. The suggested retail price is $15, but stores are free to set their own price. The price to stores includes free freight and the bags are non-returnable.

“We are not planning another print run, so please order what you think you can sell from November through May 2 and beyond,” says Dengler. “These are limited editions.”
