Donations and Trade-ins:
The vast majority of our stock comes from donations and trade-ins. Please note we do not buy books, but we do give store credit. We carry a little bit of everything. It’s a good idea to come in and have a look around at what we stock before bringing in donations.
For an idea of what we definitely do not want, here is a list:
- Computer books
- Magazines (with the exception of National Geographics which I donate to an ongoing community art program)
- Photo albums
- Audio books
- Books that are water damaged, mouldy/musty, missing pages, littered with marginalia, have large stickers on the covers, or are covered in dust, grime, or animal fur.
Meet the Owner:
I grew up in a house full of books, avid readers, and storytellers. As such I have a deep rooted love of literature. My dad used to take me to the second-hand bookstore not far from our house, and when I was old enough to go on my own I would visit at least once a week. The owners seemed so content, and I always dreamed of doing what they were doing. So when the opportunity presented itself, I jumped at it. I can’t express how happy it makes me to share my love of reading and writing with others.
