The Book Merchant Jenkins pays cash for books, from single items to entire collections.
We are most interested in purchasing books and other materials related to Sexuality, LGBTIQ+, Ethnopharmacology, Dance & Performance, Contemporary Figurative & Surreal Art, Early Printed Books, Fine Bindings, and other books and materials of Cultural or Academic Interest.
Usual in-store buying hours are currently Weekends 3pm-8pm. Weekday times are available by arrangement. These times can change so it is best to phone ahead to confirm. Other times are available by appointment. We make house calls for large collections.
We recommend emailing clear pictures of the spines or shelves or a list of titles and authors to save you carrying them in only for us to turn you away full-handed.
For collectible material we offer a fair price based on what we expect to sell your item for taking into consideration condition, desirability, availability, sale records, market value, and current requirements. For general books you should expect $1-$2 a book.
We offer 50%-100% more when exchanging for in-store credit, eg. $100 cash value is $150-$200 store credit. Credit can be kept on file without expiry.
If you want to donate books they can be brought in during opening hours at West End and 24/7 at the Logical Unsanity 24 Hour Book Shed, 3 Morgan Terrace, Bardon.
