Special Orders

Looking for a new book that we do not have in stock?  No problem!  We are happy to order it for you.  The orders usually arrive in the store within 3 days.  There are no extra fees or shipping costs to place an order.  However, if you are ordering more than $60 and/or during the holiday season, pre-payment is required.


We do not special order used books or textbooks, sorry!

Buying Books

Unfortunately, we are not buying books at this time

Looking to sell your books?  Please see more information here on our buying policies. 

Since we're a very small store, unfortunately we cannot accommodate walk-in offers.  We request that you call in advance to discuss and schedule an appointment to view your books.  

We highly recommend donating your books to the Kennett Square Resale Book Shoppe at 113 S. Union St.  All donations help to support the Kennett Area Senior Center
