A scene from this year's For Your EARS Only, held on Sept. 12-13.
For Your EARS Only
The midwest's biggest sale of all things audio!
We just wrapped up another successful "For Your EARS Only" event on September 12 & 13, and what a success it was!
The sale grossed nearly $28,500, beating last year's biggest sale to date by $2,000!
We had hundreds of people turn out both Friday and Saturday to check out all the items for sale. This year, we had over 7,500 vinyl records, 8,500 CDs, DVDs, Audio-Books and lots of musical instruments including a didgeridoo! We also had over 300 pieces of vintage and modern equipment that included turntables, receivers, amplifiers, speakers and even an early 20th century crank-up phonograph!
All items sold are generously donated by Lawrence, Kansas City and Topeka residents. Then, with the help of many of our dedicated volunteers, all items get cleaned, sorted, priced and put out for our customers. The sale generates crucial operating funds for Audio-Reader and helps cover costs associated with the print materials and technology needed to provide free reading and information services to thousands of listeners.
We are looking forward to another exciting sale for 2015!
