I would like to offer a National Geographic Microscope kit, new in unopened, shrink-wrapped case with your order of homeschooling (and/or other) books from my shelf.  Please send me a PM -- I will respond to the person who wants to place the largest order (and reply to the rest, also!). After I have responded to the PM and the books have been ordered, I'll update this forum message that the deal is done.  Thank you!

The microscope kit is about the size of a shoe box and I'd like to have it go with as many books as possible to make the postage more economical. The box will be sent parcel post or first class, which ever is cheaper. I will also buy DC for the box (as I do with any large order)

I am no longer homeschooling and I would really like to get these books and other materials gone. All the work books are in Like New condition. I knew I would be passing them along right from the beginning, so the ones we needed we worked off photocopied pages. If you are wondering why the kit is unopened -- I bought two because a friend wanted one, then she backed out. I always intended to sell it on ebay, but it works out better if I can move some books, too. If you want more info on the kit, please send a PM

Thank you!

I really have been needing a microscope for our homeschool, so I am interested in this offer. I looked at your bookshelf, and there are three books, maybe four, that I'd like to order. (All Usborne/EDC books.) Unfortunately, I have only one credit right now, but I do have five books that are currently "out there" so I'm just waiting to get the credits for them.  Please either PM me or post on here if/when the offer is taken by someone else, and hopefully I can get back with you in time!

That's one way to get a bunch of orders. ;)

Didn't see anything we need on your shelf. You could offer 2 for 1 or 3 for 1 in the bazaar with good results if you're wanting to clear your shelf, too.

Once I get the microscope offer off the table, I'll probably offer a deal on the Bazaar for any homeschool or children's books to help clear that shelf.

Thanks for the interest! The microscope has been claimed.  I'll be posting a deal on homeschool books and children's books next week.
