Books on Consignment

We don't pay cash for books, but you can sell your books through us in one of two ways:

1. If you are a local author with a new book, we can display up to three copies in the store. We'll let you know when they sell and you'll get 60%.

2. If you have used books that are definitely, we can list them online. If they sell, you'll get 50%.

online orders

If we don't have a book in stock, we can special order it for you to pick up at the store for your convenience and safety. For this service, we add a $2 fee.
