Two Great Stores. Two Great Pittsburgh Neighborhoods.
Since opening our first location at 929 Liberty Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh in 2013, and our second store at 2030 Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill in 2014, we've offered the densest concentration of well selected used books and records at great prices in all of Pittsburgh.
We've been repeatedly voted Best in Pittsburgh in City Paper, and most recently in Pittsburgh Magazine's 2018 "Best of Pittsburgh" issue.
We buy used books and vinyl records in our stores every day we're open, and so our selection is constantly changing and growing. Additionally, for large collections, we'll come to you. Please see our page here on our site for details about selling us your books, including what we're looking for in particular.
