Today at my FOL store I picked up 3 - 3 book boxed sets.  2 of them are still sealed, the other one still has the plastic on it, but it's been torn open.  They are small bible story books in a carry box with a rope handle.  The box itself does not have an ISBN number, but each individual book does.  How in the heck do I post these?  Help!

You know what I did? I just put a post in the book bazaar forum describing the contents (or linking to them) and asked for the credits to be buddied over. It was the easiest solution I could come up with when I had a similar situation.

Technically boxed sets like that can only be sent for one credit. Unless you enter each ISBN seperately. But then you run the risk of them being ordered seperately by different people.  I would go w/the book bazaar suggestion mentioned by Leeann.  I would also put it in my signature. 

BTW: what age level would you say these books are?

Thanks for the suggestions.  I don't want to break up the sets since 2 of them are still sealed.  I'll check on the age level for you Mary when I get home later this evening.  I have a long day ahead of me.

I would post each book individually since they all have ISBN#'s.  If someone orders one, you can PM them and tell them you have the others in the series.

I posted a boxed set once, and posted each book individually.  Then I advertised in the Book Bazaar that I had a boxed set of 3 books available, and offered it for 2 credits (order 2, get the other book, plus the box, free).  It was taken right away.  It also helps to mention that it's in giftable condition.
