We do not buy books.


Trade Credit works like a discount program. Books brought in are assigned a price which is approximately half of the cover price. You receive store credit equal to half of the price we assign. 


The credit is then applied to your purchases: 10% off new books, 50% off used books. You will always pay something.  


Please limit yourself to two boxes per visit unless you’ve made an appointment.


What We Take:

We are looking for gently used books.

This means:

  • No Magazines

  • No water damage

  • No torn or grimy covers or missing dust jackets

  • No smelly or hairy books.


How We Decide What To Take:

Books are checked against sale history and current inventory. Also under the discretion of our staff. If we don’t have the readership for a book, we won’t take it in.


Some of your books don’t make the cut?

Those books will be returned to you after we have had a chance to sort them. We ask that you  remain in the shop while we work on this. Typically, this is a pretty quick process. Your cooperation helps us to keep our shelves well curated and our shop clean.


Store Credit cannot be used on rare books.
