Book Exchange & Bazaar 2015 捐書義賣文創市集
11th Annual Charity Book Exchange 第十一屆捐書義賣文創市集
The Book Exchange is back--now over 2 days and with a bazaar you can join! There will be LIVE MUSIC, GREAT FOOD, A SILENT AUCTION, a KID-FRIENDLY ZONE with PERFORMANCES FOR KIDS and TONS OF ENGLISH & CHINESE BOOKS for only NT$50 each. And now you--the community--can rent a bazaar table for NT$450 for the entire weekend, or a ground blanket space for only NT$250 to sell your arts, crafts or even second-hand stuff. Contact us if you're interested, but note some conditions apply to help avoid this turning into a night market.
