We will buy books from estate sales or individual collections. We can come to your home and give you an estimate. Just call the store to make an appointment.
Please consider DONATING your items if you don't especially need the store credit. Bookstores won't be around forever and every donation helps us stay in business longer. Books we can't use are re-donated for charitable purposes as we find need.
Why shop Indie?
When you shop at an independently owned business, your entire community benefits:
Spend $100 at a locally-owned business and $52 of that stays in your community.
Spend $100 at a national chain and keep $13.00 in the local community.
Spend $100 online with a remote vendor with no sales tax collected and keep not one penny in your local community.
Local businesses create higher-paying jobs for our neighbors.
More of your taxes are reinvested in your community--where they belong.
Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint.
Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify your community.
Local retailers are your friends and neighbors—support them and they’ll support you.
Local businesses donate to charities at more than twice the rate of national chains.
More independents means more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community.
Now is the time to stand up and join your fellow individuals in the IndieBound mission supporting local businesses and celebrating independents.
