A. No. After 12 months of running Book Fairs we have realised re-orders are a giant pain in the butt for everyone involved. As a result we have decided not to offer re-orders for titles that sell out during your book fair. We will use our intel to make sure you get enough copies of all the hot titles up front, so hopefully this is not an issue moving forward.
Q. DO YOU SUPPORT AUSTRALIAN AUTHORS?
A. A big yes! Not only do we support Aussie authors, over 70% of Larrikin published titles so far are first time Aussie authors!! But wait, there’s more… We stock products from a broad range of Aussie publishers too, including small micro publishers. Did we mention we’re a fully Australian owned family business? yeah, that too.
Q. WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES LIKE?
A. Think BigW. (Except you won’t find too much of what we offer actually at BigW) As one of the largest children’s booksellers to the education market, our buying power is very good, and we pass those savings on. Also, for simplicity, we only have a few different price points too. They are; $1.00 / $2.50 / $5.00 / $7.50 / $10.00 / $12.50 / $15.00 / $20.00 & $25.00.
Q. DO I NEED TO USE BOOK FAIR STOCK TO SPEND MY COMMISSION.
A. You’re not limited to the book fair stock, so you can use your commission to purchase anything on our website. And there’s no expiry either. After you’ve taken what you like from the book fair stock, we’ll add your commission balance to your online account as a store credit so you can spend it anytime you like.
Q. DO I NEED TO COUNT STOCK?
A. No, life’s too short! Counting stock is boring, so we don’t count it either.
Q. IF YOU DON’T COUNT STOCK, HOW WILL YOU KNOW IF WE STEAL IT?
A. We won’t, so knock yourself out! – Seriously… after 30 years in this industry, I think Australian educators are some of the most conscientious people alive. (James)
Q. WHAT’S LARRIKIN’S CONNECTION WITH LEARNING DISCOVERY?
A. Larrikin House started as Learning Discovery’s publishing imprint. We are now one and the same, and in 2021 we officially merged both businesses under the Larrikin umbrella, so we’re now simply Larrikin House.
