Ashay by the Bay is an Independent Minority Business that specializes in African American and Multi-Cultural Children's Books. We are certified by the State of California and the main core of our business is with public and private schools. Your business is important to us and we are very interested in building a relationship with you to provide the best educational materials and services for your school. Add us to your vendor list and let us help you build your libraries.
We are really excited about our Ashay's School Collections, however we have over 550 Books Online in stock and 2500 in our database most of which meet Core Curriculum Standards. We only sell picture and chapter books, we do not sell textbooks. But we can locate and supply any book you need because we do business with all publishers and distributers. This is one of the many added services that we offer our customers. Also you will notice the way our book collections are categorized and displayed online. Viewing multiple titles in each category will save you time and allows for a complete visual of all the titles. And in the African American children's books we added several additional themes in the Youth Development and Social Situations category that Parents and Educators both find helpful. Oh and If you need teaching manuals and reference, we can supply you with these too..
Book Fairs and Fund Raising
We also offer Online and Onsite Book Fairs for schools and organizations. Sales commissions range from 10% to 15% of sales. You can also suggest a Gift Card and make your own selection. Online book fairs can be scheduled with schools throughout the United States. Onsite book fairs can be arranged for the Bay Area of California and surrounding cities only and are based on distance and sales potential. To get started download an application click here.
