We Buy Books

Are your bookshelves heaving with books? Do you fancy a bit of a clearout to make room for some new ones? Maybe you’re looking to make a little extra cash? Or perhaps it’s just time to let go of some of those cherished books to be enjoyed by someone else?

We may be willing to buy them off you……. and we would love you to get in touch with us.

We specialise in Art ,Photography and Design, Philosophy, Poetry, Film, Travel and Topography, History, and Literary Fiction including Modern First Editions. We need to be selective in terms¬† of the books we buy in order to maintain the quality of our stock and because we have limited shelf space available within the shop. As a result, we only buy books that are in very good / excellent condition (in relation to their age), so please bear this in mind and don’t be offended if we are unable to take some or all of your books.

How it works:

1. Call us on 0114 3270341 or call/text to 07840 088590 and provide us with some details of the type and quantity of books you have available for sale. We can usually give you a good indication at this point as to whether we would be interested in purchasing the books or not. If we are interested we will then either invite you to bring them down to the shop, or arrange to view them at your home/wherever the books are situated Рparticularly when there is a large quantity of books available, for instance in the case of a house clearance.Viewings will usually need to be within easy travelling distance of Sheffield, but we may be prepared to travel further afield for particularly interesting  collections of books.


You are also welcome to bring your books down to the shop at any time and we will just look them over there and then. Parking can be a little restricted. The best option is usually to pull up outside the shop in order to decant the books or to let us have a quick viewing of the books in the car.

2. If we are interested in purchasing all or some of your books we will offer you a cash price for them. We will then pay you in cash upon delivery of the books to the shop/collection by us.
