The 2017 CHN Family Expo
Used Curriculum & Family Entrepreneurial Sale
A gigantic Expo Used Curriculum & Family Entrepreneurial Sale will be held on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 11am-2pm & 3pm-6pm at the Great Wolf Lodge. I have 2 tables left for the 11am-2pm shift and 10 tables left for the 3pm-6pm shift. I will try to accommodate time preferences, but only a few left at the morning time.
Plan now to sell your no longer needed books, curriculum, and games, and pick up some great bargains too! Entrepreneurs are invited to sell your wares!
All participants may sell their personal items only (no businesses or foods allowed). Table reservations will be accepted in the order that they are received.
You do not have to be a CHN member, but you must be a registered Expo Attendee to come and shop at the Used Curriculum/ Entrepreneurial Sale. And you MUST be a registered Expo attendee to buy a table and sell items. The sale will be in the Pre-Function of the Conference Area.

Check out the Sale FAQs
This year, the sale will be held at 2 different times: 11am-2pm and 3pm-6pm. When you purchase a table, you will be adding information pertaining to your time preference and items being sold. Each seller, with time and description of items sold will be displayed on this page to give attendees information in advance.
The idea is to have a good time selling!
If you would like to attend sessions, you could pair up with a few friends and take turns sitting at the table, or ask your teen or spouse to do it for you.
CHN will not be collecting a percentage of your profits – it’s all yours to keep! The cost for a table is $15. Add it to your shopping cart in the Expo section of the CHN store.
A comment from past years:
“To be honest, the used curriculum sale was an event in & of itself! There was LOTS of talking about various aspects of homeschooling, pros/cons of various resources, and I even heard a bit of a discussion citing a session the person had been to!”
Family Entrepreneurial Sale
CHN is once again offering an opportunity for homeschool kids to see what it’s like to create a product and sell it.
This year we also welcome crafty parents to join in on the fun!
We view this as an educational opportunity for the children who would like to try developing some marketable products and learn some skills. The kids can have their own table, or sell at their family’s table. You may mix used curriculum with entrepreneurial items on the same table. No food items please! The cost for one table is $15.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I leave early?
A: Sure. This is going to be a very casual and fun sale, and when you sell out or get tired, it’s no problem to leave, and if anyone wants to grab your table to spread out, that’s fine too.
A: As many as you like!
You might be crowded at first, but use the under the table space or just keep putting out new stuff, or take turns selling.
Q: When is the deadline for renting a table?
A: We’ll accept table registrations until the room is full.
Q: Can I rent 1/2 a table?
A: No, we tried that one year, and it caused some confusion. If you want 1/2 a table, you can find someone to share the table and cost with you.
A: No, only Expo Attendees can attend the sale.
Q: Will there be Freebie Tables this year?
A: Yes! Whether you reserve a table or not, you may bring items to place on the Freebie Table.
Q: I have a question that isn’t answered here. Is there someone I can contact?
