We are trading books for store credit only by appointment only :) 

you can make an appointment by emailing the store at spectatorbooks@gmail.com, or by coming in or calling if you don't use email. 

we trade Tues-Sat, DAYTIME, but our appointment times change daily based on our changing schedule.

we can look at up to two grocery bags of books at a time per visit, one visit per day. we reserve the right to limit visits or to cease trade-ins at any time if we have too much stock. 

thank you for understanding!

 

--Our store credit does not expire and is good for just about anything in the store, and also special orders.

-- We have a small parking lot for your convenience. 

-- As a general bookstore, we will look at just about any type of book, but we do tend to avoid buying the following: 

most encyclopedias;

most magazines;

most books with heavy damage, including water damage, mildew, broken spines, extensive writing or highlighting;

most condensed books (some exceptions for children's);

most ex-library books (some discard-stamped okay)

-- We have many years of experience in buying and selling, but we are a relatively small store, so while we will gladly make accommodations and offers whenever we are able, we generally don't look at huge amounts of books at once, buy entire estates, buy exceptionally expensive or rare volumes, or visit homes to make purchases. You are welcome to ask; never say never! We will also on occasion make an exception to our store-credit-only policy for an unusual collection of art, philosophy, science fiction, metaphysics or other specialty books -- please email for more information. 

THANK YOU for choosing us to re-home your great items! We love playing matchmaker between good folks and good books and movies, and your collective tastes make this place what it is!
