Our Trade Policy
Trade credit works like a discount program.
You receive 1/4 of the cover price in credit for
every book we take. The credit is then applied
to your purchases: 10% of new items, 50% of
used. You will always pay something! Please
limit yourself to two boxes per visit unless you’ve
made an appointment.

What We Take
We are looking for gently used books.

This means:
- No magazines
- No water damage
- No torn or grimy covers or missing dust jackets
- No smelly or hairy books
We prefer paperbacks and rarely take
hardcovers. We do not take textbooks.

How We Decide What To Take
We are very particular! Books are checked against sales history and
current inventory. They are also under the
scrutiny of our staff. If we don’t have the
readership for a book we won’t take it in.

Some of your books don’t make
the cut?

We are happy to donate them for you! Any
books we can’t take into the store are donated
to the Rist Canyon Fire Department. Please let us
know if you would like to donate your books or
if you’d like them returned to you. Books left at
the store over 12 hours will be donated.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.
