Sell Your Books

Do you have books to sell?

 We are always buying good books!

We strive to pay as much as we can for your books. We want you to be pleased with the service you receive here, so that you always bring your books to us, first. The price we offer is our best possible price and as such is firm. We pay cash or can offer trade credit, according to your preference.

We also offer a consignment program, available on request for books valued over $500.00. Commissions on consignment sales are calculated on a sliding scale, depending on the value of the item in question. If you have an item you would like to sell on consignment, please contact us at 204-947-5931, or mail@bisonbooks.ca (ask for Aimee).

 You can bring in your books any time during shop hours. If you want your books appraised on-the-spot when you come in, please call first to ensure a buyer is on the premises (204-947-5931). You will find a loading zone directly in front of the shop, and several bus stops within a block.

 If you have too many books to bring in, we may be able to come out to your house to evaluate your collection. Just give us a call (204-947-5931) to discuss the details and make an appointment.

 If you are from out of town, you can email us the details of what you have and we can do some preliminary research to let you know whether or not it will be worthwhile to mail in your books for appraisal.
