I meant buying from the publishers, mainly. But you can go to Half Priced books and buy curriculum too.

Its harder to sell your books with Ebay's policy, but there are swap boards and places like Craigs list or Vegsource. It's just not as convenient.

But it's stupid that you can't sell these on Ebay when you can go online and buy them from the publishers or from distributors.

I wasn't sure if was OK to list some of the venues where regular eBay sellers have gone, but here are some suggested sites to find used curriculum:

www.thislittlepiggystayshome.com
www.blujay.com
www.wagglepop.com
www.schoolbookauction.com
www.homeschoolbid.com
www.onlineauction.com
www.childrensbookmarket.com
www.homeschoolclassifieds.com
http://froogle.google.com/

I hope this helps in your quest for teacher materials! Very Happy

And if you are looking for teacher's editions for homeschooling purposes, inquire with some professors at your local community college. My wife recently brought home 100+ volumes in various subjects from her college here in Nevada. The professors get new editions constantly and the old ones generally are thrown away. Jess (my wife) was collecting them for a group that supplies books to schools in Africa. We went through and picked out a dozen to add to our homeschooling library or to replace editions we no longer wanted.
