A different approach
We now offer a "sell through"
scheme for local residents (Kuwait) that will help you maximize the return
from selling your books.
How does it work?
The system is suitable for small collections of books from 25 up to
300. (If you are selling a larger collection then please contact us
directly to discuss in further detail)
How do the books reach us?
You are welcome to deliver the books personally or if that is not
practical, then we can arrange to collect the books from you.
On receipt of the books we will provide you with a count and a
confirmation of our receipt. Over the following weeks the books will
be valued, catalogued and made available for sale at our store and
through this website. You will then receive a full list of the books,
with the sale price, as confirmation of your stock held by us. Those
books that we do not consider worth selling can be returned to you.
In general, condition of books should be very good or better. In the
case of unusual or rare items, we would consider a lesser condition.
The current demand is
for books under the following categories.
Art & Crafts, Architecture, Biographies, Business, Cooking, Comics,
Health, Home & Garden, History & Politics, Music, Non-Fiction,
Science, Self-Help, Religion & Philosophy, War & Military.
As we already have a fairly abundant collection of Children's Books,
General Fiction, Romance, Western, we are not interested to
stock them at the moment. If in doubt please call us before you
bring your books to the store.
What you will
Stock Time versus Cost Per
1 - 3 Months 60% Of Sale Price
4 - 6 Months 50% Of Sale Price
7 - 9 Months 40% Of
10- 12 Months 30% Of Sale Price
Why does the return decrease? Certain books take longer to sell than
others and takes up valuable space at our store. That costs money.
At the end of the 12 month period there are two options. Firstly,
all remaining stock can be returned to you against a nominal fee of
100 fills per book to cover our initial cataloguing costs.
A catalogue of the remaining stock will be sent along with them.
Alternatively you may wish to accept our offer to take them into our
Terms & Conditions
1) At no point do we take ownership of the books until 12 months has
elapsed and an agreement as to the termination of the selling
arrangement has taken place. The books remain yours and can be
returned to you at any time should you wish to have them or sell
them elsewhere. Please note that to do so will require you to settle
up with us for the listing fee (100 fills per book) that would be
deducted from the sale price of the book.
2) At any time you can request a list of current books for sale, and
books that have been sold and the amount due to you.
3) Payment can be arranged monthly, or whenever a mutually agreed sale amount
has totaled up. You may collect it as cash or use it as store credit
that can be redeemed at our store.
4) All books are priced to sell, rather than sit on our shelves. Any
book whose value is disputed can be re-evaluated. However, our
experience is in selling books and, to sell, price and condition are
