Sell Your Books

Do you have books to sell?

We are always buying good books!

We strive to pay as much as we can for your books. We want you to be pleased with the service you receive here, so that you always bring your books to us, first. The price we offer is our best possible price and as such is firm. We pay cash or can offer trade credit, according to your preference.

We also offer a consignment program for selected books valued over $1000.00 USD. Commissions on consignment sales are calculated on a sliding scale, depending on the value of the item in question. If you have an item you would like to sell on consignment, please contact us at 204-947-5931, or (ask for Aimee).

 You can bring in your books any time during shop hours. If you want your books evaluated on-the-spot when you come in, please call first to ensure a buyer is on the premises (204-947-5931). You will find a loading zone directly in front of the shop, and several bus stops within a block.

 If you have too many books to bring in, we may be able to come out to your residence to evaluate your collection. Just give us a call (204-947-5931) to discuss the details and make an appointment. We require some information of the scope and quality of the collection before arranging a visit. 

 If you are from out of town, you are welcome to email us details of what you have. We can do some preliminary research to let you know whether or not it will be worthwhile to mail in your books for appraisal.
