BUYING! BUYING! BUYING!

Thinking of selling off part or all of your collection? I have been paying premium prices for books & collections for many years now. Some people think that because I offer discounts then I must pay low. This is not true, because I work on high turn over and a low profit margin.  My buying partner Dave Reynolds and me have spent over  $300,000 on new stock last year alone. We want your collections so make sure to let us bid.  Selling call 1-800-938-0325
