Announcement: EAFR will be closing Oct 15, 2016.
It has been a wonderful (almost) four years of meeting all who came into our humble abode and who visited our booths at various conferences. The friendships and acquaintances made were an unexpected corollary benefit to running this business.
For the month of July, we will be restricted to having open hours only, and appointments will only be made for bringing in consignment or quick order pick-ups. We will have open hours and appointments available throughout August and September for you to browse and select curriculum, so please check the calendar. Watch for our BIG sale October 11th-15th.
Our school board purchase order policy has changed. If you wish to use a school board purchase order, your items will be held here until approval has been attained. The last day we will accept purchase orders is October 8th, 2016.
We will no longer be placing orders with suppliers, however, we are still processing consignment. We may still take in select curriculum on consignment in August if there is a demand for it. Please contact us for details.
If you currently consign with us, it is business as usual, and you will be contacted closer to the date regarding pick-up procedures after October 15th. Your cheques and leftover items will be ready for pick up between October 24th-29th. After that week, consignment cheques will be mailed out and your left over items donated.
The good news: There will be an abundance of consignment to choose from in the coming months. Email us anytime to see if we have what you are looking for. Or come by to browse during our open hours.
The fine print: Nobody in our family is sick, and we are not moving. Simply put, sustaining our business is no longer viable due to one of our key suppliers going out of business this summer. Time will tell if there will be other exciting endeavours to pursue, but for now, we are here to serve you to the best of our ability until October.
Educational Adventures & Family Resources is a humble home-based home school bookstore providing both a place for home school parents to find resources for their family and for home school families to conveniently sell their resources to others through our consignment program. We have been serving home school families since 2012.
We sell more than just curriculum. Since we believe the way a family chooses to home school is as unique as the family themselves, we carry other goodies such as family friendly movies, games, puzzles, novels, science kits, journals, and...puppets!
We are located 20 minutes west of Edmonton in Spruce Grove, Alberta.
(Just a quick note for anyone coming from a distance, we do not have public washrooms and would ask to please take care of that, especially with little ones, before arriving or be prepared to be directed to the Trans-Alta Tri-Leisure Center located 3 minutes away.)
As we are also a home school family, email is the best way to reach us via the keep in touch page.
