Sell Your Books
We purchase books at our store on Richmond Row in Downtown London. We also make house calls in the case of larger collections. We are in the shop to purchase from Monday to Saturday 10-6. It's a good idea to call ahead to make sure we are available if you are bringing a lot of boxes at 226-667-4977 or shoot us a message via whatever electronic media suits your fancy.
We also offer trade as well for books, so if you'd prefer that route then you are welcome to have an account at our store for your trade value to use at your convenience.
We consider our sellers our clients, and our focus is making your life easier. Whether you are downsizing or dealing with an estate, we will find an arrangement to suit your situation. Most of all, we share our love of books with you and we can't wait to see what you have for us! We know that dealing with a book collection, or even just a few volumes you're not sure of, can be overwhelming. Send us an email or give us a call and we'll be happy to meet with you to discuss your situation.
If you've come into our store, you know that we are generous with our expertise and love to talk about your treasures with you. We're happy to help you learn about rare books anytime, but sometimes something more official is required. That's where our appraisal services come in.
We have over 40 years of combined experience dealing with rare and collectible material. Our history includes large antiquarian collections as well as oddball contemporary work such as zines, posters, and artist's books. We have seen it all, and love assessing uncommon material.
Our services are $250 a day for a professional out-appointment appraisal. We can also offer a letter for single items in-shop. This service is $50 per item. Larger collections that take longer are $250 a day as well, although we aim to be expedient, while accurate. We provide all relevant documentation for insurance, donation, and tax purposes.
Please do contact us with any questions. We are happy to discuss your situation.
