We buy books every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday
between the hours of 12pm - 3 pm.
We ask that you bring one box at a time and wait while we go through your books.
We offer store credit for buybacks. Credit expires after two years of the date issued. It can be used towards anything in the store, both new and used books as well as merchandise. You may not use store credit on special orders or to purchase a gift card.
What we buy and how we evaluate your books:
General Rule: The books we buy are books we can sell in the store. If you’ve frequented our shelves you should have a pretty good idea of the types of books we take. We primarily buy books for our general inventory, but we are also interested in buying books for our vintage book section upstairs.
Credit Offerings: We offer about 30% of what we can sell the book for. That usually comes to around $2 for paperbacks and $4 for hardcovers. On some occasions we come across more valuable books, in such instances we will offer you a greater amount in credit for the book.
Condition: We are looking for new and gently used books with very little to no underlining, highlighting, or annotation. Please make sure your books are in clean and sellable condition before bringing them in.
We Do Not Take: Maps, Magazines, Time-Life Books, Reader’s Digest, Chicken Soup for the Soul Books, For Dummies Books, Romance or Erotica, Westerns, Hardcover Mysteries, Classroom textbooks, books that are dirty, heavily underlined, moldy or falling apart, hardcover books without dust jackets, or books that are irrelevant or outdated (i.e. past years travel guides).
Estates: Occasionally we purchase large collections and will come out to a residence. If you are interested in this service, please call or email.
