WHAT AND HOW WE BUY

As of 8/24/19 until further notice,
we are currently buying ONLY:
Kids Books, Teen Books, Comic Books, Graphic Novels, Manga, Video Games, DVDs, CDs, Local Yearbooks, 
Audio Books, Vinyl Records   
& Paperback Fiction!

WE DO APPRECIATE YOU OFFERING US A CHANCE TO LOOK AT YOUR BOOKS!

WE BUY FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY & MONDAY FROM 10-12noon & 2-5 pm

LIMIT 6 BOXES/BAGS PER DAY BY ANY ONE INDIVIDUAL. 


There will be items of yours that we are unable to pay for. A donation bax will be outside the rear entrance to the buying area of the store for your convenience. If you would like us to dispose of it for you, you can simply dump it in there on your way out.  Otherwise, we heartily recommend donating to Salvation Army on Union Avenue. They happily take books while many of the Goodwills

do not. 

 

*All items left with us, due to them being over our 6 box limit, will be repurposed within 48 hrs. so please be sure that you do not donate or sell to us anything you may want back.

 

**If you feel you have more valuable items to sell, we would be happy to individually assess your items and offer you the best we possibly can and double that amount in store credit.

 

***Cash or store credit is offered at time of drop off unless the timing or quantity requires you to leave it and have it processed at a later time. In which case, the items left will become ours and the cash or credit will be available to be picked up after 48 hours at our store. Any unusable items will be disposed of. 

Planning

 

Sometimes even all the books we buy from our customers aren't enough to stock the shelves. So we must hunt...

Strategy

​​

When attacking a box of books larger than yourself, a knife to cut the box down is good, also ladders, step stools, tennis shoes, gloves & someone to pull you out in case you get stuck! Our manager Don once found a live snake in one of these boxes!

Results

​​

Sometimes we get asked to buy whole storage units or garages full of books... it can be a beautiful sight! (Some restrictions apply.)
