All the fun stuff haha! Policies, we all have to have them, we try to keep ours simple, and if anything is not clear, just ask! Things are always changing. If you do not find your answer here please contact us through the contact page.
Don’t let this page make you think we are stuffy and no fun, we just gotta have some guidelines 🙂
We do not have a computer inventory so you do need to come in and look around. This may be a digital world however about 99% of our business is done in person, crazy right?!?
We are happy to special order (with prepayment) any book you cannot find in our store. We have a network of used bookstores we order from and help each other fulfill orders or order new from our site and have books delivered to your door.
Prepayment can be made with cash, card or even PayPal if you can’t get in right away. We do not take checks.
Store credit may not be applied to special orders.
Monday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Tuesday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
After hours shopping appointments are available by texting or calling the shop at (509) 888 – 6306 to make arrangements. We will happily stay late most nights to meet your shopping needs.
We are open several holidays throughout the year that fall on our regular days, except Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day. We also close on Apple Blossom parade days.
For the last week in October we will be closed for VACATION! YAHOOTIES 🙂

Book Donations and Drop-off Schedule
Donations and drop-offs will be taken during store hours, preferably Mon.-Thur., 12-4. We are not able to process large amounts (estate clean outs, yard sale leftovers, etc.), please limit to one small box or bag. Books must be clean and in good condition before we will consider taking them in the store.
If you need to make other arrangements email email@example.com
Please, do not leave your books outside after hours.
Our book needs change with the seasons however books we can almost always take are: Children picture books, children to young adult books, classics, new age, history, and science, Stephen King & Harry Potter. Fiction hardbacks are limited in several categories, and most need to have the dust jacket and be no more than two years old (in most cases). Title and author do need to be visible on the spines of the books. Self Help, Parenting, Health, Financial, and most Christian non-fiction books need to be from the last two years.
We do not take encyclopedias, textbooks, computer books, travel guides, used crossword or coloring books, or old game guides. We do not take water damaged books, books with mildew, smelly books (stinky stuff, smoky, cat urine, etc), or books with damaged and/or missing covers.
We do not pick up books or purchase books. No exceptions.
We give store credit for books in good condition that we can put out for immediate sale. We do not pick up books, trade books, or pay cash for books.
Book credits are subject to approximation when there is a large amount brought in or if the buyers are particularly busy. CURRENTLY NOT TAKING LARGE AMOUNTS OF BOOKS, LIMIT ONE SMALL BOX OR BAG PER CUSTOMER UNLESS OTHER ARRANGEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE.
You may use your store credit for up to half (50%) off the purchase of used books in our inventory. For example If you’re buying a $10 book, you can use $5 of store credit. The other $5 must be paid with cash or card.
Store credit (up to 10%) may now be applied to purchese of new books in our inventory, new merchandise in the shop, and books in the rare bookcase. Credit may not be applied to items sold on consignment. Maximum discount allowed for these items on store credit is 10%.
Store credit may not be combined with coupons or other offers.
The amount of credit issued will depend on a number of factors: format, condition, subject matter, presence or lack of a dust jacket, availability, and salability. Please bear in mind that excessive wear will always reduce the trade-in value of a book. That having been said, a book in “practically new” condition might have very little trade-in value due to the other above-mentioned factors.
Trade credit may not be “cashed out” at any time. Accounts will be closed after two (2) years of inactivity.
Coupons and discounts
Coupons and discounts may not be combined.
No returns on any items.
We do some consignment sales for local authors and artists and crafters. Please bring in your items so we can see if they are a good fit for our store, if we have room at the time, and discuss the details of consignment. We love working with local authors and artisans who help promote shopping local!
We do not purchase your items wholesale. We do not promote Amazon in any way, nor do we allow marketing materials to be included in your items promoting Amazon. No phone calls or emails please, you need to bring your items in person, thanks.
