Sell us your books and records! We buy used books and records for cash, and can offer you a larger sum in store credit.
BOOKS: You can bring your books in during daytime store hours, and we will make you an offer for the books we want.
We often buy large collections of books, and we will travel to you. Write us an firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us about your collection, or call one of our stores.
Books we want: We buy scholarly titles in all fields, current and very recent literary and non-fiction best-sellers (less than six months old), classic literary fiction, textbooks in current use, history books, counter-cultural authors, Judaica, philosophy, architecture, chess and more. All books should be intact, free of markings, dirt, discolorations and stains, odors, dog-earing, and rips.
We generally prefer not to buy old textbooks, ex-library books, novelty books, encyclopedias, almanacs, popular fiction hardcovers more than two years old, old Reader's Digest condensed books, or anything marred or stinky. Basically, we most like to buy the books that most people like to hold onto for themselves. Due to the limited size of our stores, we cannot take everything that we are brought.
We buy records! We buy LP's in great condition primarily in the categories of classic rock, new wave, punk, and post-punk, underground, heavy metal, classic soul, R&B, blues, reggae, 20th century classical composers, classical music, electronica, classic country, folk, and modern jazz. We buy large collections as well: from collectors, from estates, from radio stations, from disc jockeys, record reviewers, from stores that have closed, and from people who for one reason or another just need to downsize or let go of their collections. We pay cash at our stores every day that we're open, and we will travel to you for your large collection.
We generally don't buy big band music, easy listening music, Broadway shows, novelty records, and so forth,
