Trade Policy

Bring us your gently-loved, well-read (or unread!) books for store credit.

We happily accept used titles for store credit! A few important notes:

We do accept books in every genre, with consideration to our inventory needs.

We do accept books that are in gently-worn condition (a few creases or bit of marginalia is fine with us).

We don’t accept old textbooks.

We don’t accept ex-library books or books in unsatisfactory condition.

We don’t take hardback books that are missing their dust jackets

If you leave the store while we're assessing your trade, any books we do not take (and the containers they were brought in) will be recycled.



How do I use my credit?

Your in-store credit is stored in our system and can be used when purchasing other used inventory. Simply check out the price sticker to see how much of your credit can be applied:

  • USED: 100% credit can be applied.
  • USED+++: 50% credit can be applied.
  • NEW: 0% credit can be applied (but we'd love for you to bring it back once you're done reading).

Do you purchase estates?

If you have a large number of books to sell, please get in touch to discuss details and coordinate a time and day to evaluate your trad
