How the credit works

Store credit applies toward books we have at our brick-and-mortar store. You can use it toward 50% off our price on used books and 20% off our price on new books.

It's important to note that regardless of how much credit you have, you will still always owe something out-of-pocket when getting books.

Credit does work toward many of our non-book items (such as t-shirts) but does not work toward small paper items such as stickers and cards, book subscriptions, or books purchased through

How to trade

We are currently accepting books on a first-come first-serve basis (no appointments). We aren't offering cash at this time.

With rare exceptions, we take books seven days a week except during the Farmer's Market on Sundays from 10-3.

We accept a maximum, per visit, of:

  • three paper grocery bags,
  • or two medium-sized boxes,
  • or one large box/tub of books

If you have more than a handful of books, we will go through them in the back of the store. To make it easier on everyone, please park behind the store – we have two spots for customer parking – and ring the buzzer on the table just inside the door. One of us will come help you out. :)

If you'd like, we can donate any books we don't need.
