In Store Trade Policy

How the Trade works:
As both a new and used bookstore, we trade gently used books for credit toward other books in our store. We will examine your books and decide whether or not to trade based on content, condition, and our current inventory status.

We may choose to refuse a book due to overstock, but we may accept it next time you come in, so feel free to bring it back! However, if we refuse your book based on the condition, then you should not bring it back. Any marks or writing in the books, dog ears, water stains, tears, smells, or stickers are reasons for it to be refused.

We do not trade encyclopedias, series romance novels, Reader's Digest Condensed Books, textbooks, or magazines, and we reserve the right to refuse any book.

How the Credit works:
For the books we accept, we will give a credit that reflects a portion of the retail value of the book - up to 25% of the retail value. Your credit may be used for a discount of up to 50% off of a used book or up to 25% off of a new book. For example, you may use $5 dollars of your credit on a $10 used book, but you will be responsible for the remaining $5.

You do not have to use all of your credit in one transaction. Your credit is kept on file indefinitely along with your name and phone number.
