Between those in the family and a large recently acquired collection, we have 7,000-10,000 books. These encompass all genres and age groups.
We have fiction and non-fiction; hardbound, paperback and coffee table; toddler, early reader and young teen; history, textbooks, manuals, self-help, religious texts, political, scientific, cooking; historical fiction, sci-fi, romance and harlequin, classics; books of poetry, comic books, graphic novels, vintage magazines; even TimeLife series, National Geographic, coffee table books and even antique books in German.
The list goes on and on and publishing dates are from present day to the 's. There are first editions from recent (past 40 years) authors like Stephen King, Nicholas Guild, Danielle Steele, John LeCarre, Forsythe, Follett, Cook, and Tom Clancy and first printings going back a century or more.
We are still trying to organize and get a general sketch of the inventory, but have a few purchase options right now:
100 mixed hardbound books for $125
100 mixed paperback books for $75
All vintage or antique books which value at $10-25 I'm selling in bundles for $5 or boxes for $4. There are quite a few books which could appraise at $30 - $150 or more.
There are 150 or so children's books which I will divide by broad age range. I've currently separated them into one box of toddler, two boxes encompassing 2nd grade to young adult and children's books published pre - email for more info.
All textbooks (approx. 200) for $350 or get smaller batches for $2.50 - $3.50/book
There are hundreds of nice (not just inexpensively bound spiral) cookbooks. Make me an offer on all or a portion of them. Some are even quite vintage ( - ) and in good to great shape.
There are also tons of Playboys from - s, vintage and antique magazines like Family Circle, Time, Women's Day, etc.
I would also love to speak with anyone out there who is a collector, aficionado or otherwise knowledgeable on the value of antique books. There must be around books hailing from the s through the s.
There are a few craigslist post which feature many images - message me and I will send you the links.
This is a great opportunity to round out your library, purchase inexpensively for resell, boost your bookstore's stock, give to a nursing home, church or school library, etc. We are VERY motivated to sell and will work with you within reason. We might even accept some payment through bartering. We are always interested in gold, silver, firearms/ammo, antiques in good shape and many other collectibles and items which could provide some profit from resell.
Thanks for checking this out and look forward to hearing from you!
