Toys - All of our toys, science projects, crafts are listed by category. I love finding award-winning, unique, educational STEM science and math activities, crafts, puzzles, and developmental gifts for your kids.
Used Books - You can search for specific titles by keyword or by author to see what we have available. When you order on our website we will save the books for you at the store or ship for $3.99 per book order regardless of how many books you order. Everyone gets to choose a free book when coming into our store. Organizations and teachers get to choose free books for classrooms and to give away. We are grateful for your book donations in helping our bookstore grow and to have this ability to connect you and your donations with those that are are so grateful for their book gifts. All books are for sale for $2.

Pictures of books added recently to our used bookstore.
Each day that we add books to our site I will show the sides of the books by category for you to quickly look through on this link! Facebook - On our Facebook page we daily show pictures of Susan's each day. You can see what toys, clothes, and books we are unpacking along with fun pictures of our store. Gift Cards - One way you can help us have our small business is to give gift cards for any reason that go directly to e-mails. These can be sent for birthdays, thank-you's, Christmas gifts, or just to pay the shipping costs for a friend to order from our store in Nebraska. This helps us so much as you help spread the word about our store and help us continue to grow!

Welcome to Susan’s!!  We invite you to come for books that might change your life, find award-winning toys, select almost new children’s consignment clothing, and make friends.  Educational activities, crafts, science and building projects, and toys your kids will love to learn as they play.  Quality.  Educational.  And, of course, fun!

We welcome you to our used bookstore.  History, biographies, fiction, children, mysteries, westerns, cookbooks, sports, religious books, and more.  Everyone gets a free book every time you visit as our gift.  Books are donated by customers to help us have our store and to help us give books away in our local communities.   We desire to get books into as many homes throughout our area as possible.  We believe that a book given in the daytime may change a life when read at midnight.  

Have a beautiful day!  Life is so short…only one grain of sand can make it through the sand timer per moment.  Let’s make a conscious effort to notice each piece as it goes through.  Each moment.  Our gift.  Susan
