Final heads up

Well, this is the last chance I get to announce this before the whole thing actually starts.

Chuang Yi Publishing Pte Ltd will be holding a massive warehouse bazaar this year end (meaning tomorrow). According to their website, there will be ‘hard to find collections’ (i.e outdated and old beyond most stores’ willingness to keep stock), ‘massive discounts’ (this one you can believe, looking at their mid-year sale at expo), and ‘lots more’.

According to their poster/pamphlet, they’ve got more than 200 titles for sale, and prices start as low as 50 cents. Free gifts with every purchase.

Date: 1st to 10th December

Time: 10am – 6pm

Location: Blk 2 Pasir Panjang Road. Alexander Distripark. #06-15/17

Ok, my thoughts? Well, this isn’t quite the first time Chuang Yi would be having such a sale, even if I’ve only been to one other one. The time they set up a booth within the Singapore section of Popular Bookstore’s Chinese Book Fair at the Expo.

Judging from that experience, bring lots of cash. Lots of it, you’ll need it. The poster says prices as low as 50 cents, it is most likely true. The problem will be that you’ll have to buy the books by series, which well, adds up the cost somewhat…

Given that this is more a warehouse sale than a promotional booth, it should be pretty safe to assume that Chuang Yi’s very old titles will be appearing. If there was ever anything you missed out in the past, take this oppurtunity to grab it.

There may be a chance that Chuang Yi will also hold a small manga/anime merchandise auction at the place. If so, you’ll need even more money. The last time they had an auction, they even sold off figurines…means you need double, no, triple digit amounts of cash…But the small stuff, some of it is pretty worth it as well, especially if you snag it at a much lower price than original.
