Trade Policy

Books brought in can be either donated or traded for a store credit.

If Traded In: Hardcovers are counted at $3 each, Harlequins older than 1 years: counted at $1 each, Paperback and Mass Paperback it's the lowest cover price, and then 15% of the amount totalled.

How that works is like this:

  • a paperback, cover price $17.99, 15% of that is $2.6985. That would give you a credit of $2.75 towards in store books.

  • a hardcover book, $49.99. Hardcovers here are only valued as $3.00. 15% of $3.00 is $0.45. So that would give you $0.50 towards in store books

  • Harlequin book from 2019, only valued at $1.00. 15% of $1 is $0.15. That's $0.25 towards in store books.

  • a paperback / hardcover / mass paperback has the original price at $20.00 but there's another price on it that says $8.00. $8 would be the lowest cover price so, 15% of $8.00 is $1.20. You'd have $1.25 towards in store books

What we don’t take:

We only have so much space! So things that don’t sell well, items in rough/poor/wet conditions or that smell of mold/mildew/smoke will not be accepted

Items we don’t take include (but are not limited to) : most magazines, textbooks, reader’s digest condensed books, travel books, computer/software books, encyclopedias, ex-library books, and books purchased here.
