We have one of the largest Used, Rare and Out-of-Print bookstores North of Seattle. We buy, sell, and trade a wide variety of titles in a broad range of subjects, from first edition hardcovers to pocket paperbacks. We have a stock of over 250,000 books in our Downtown Bellingham, Washington store. We are proud of our store and the wide range of subjects we carry.

We have a selection of antiquarian books, as well as fine leather bindings, collector’s items, and quality general secondhand stock, on diverse subjects including history, mystery, geography, literature, romance, art & architecture, transport & travel, cookery, nature, automotive, science fiction, religion, gardening, sports & leisure, role-playing games, science & industry, health, new age, and many more.

Due to our proximity to the Canadian border we buy many Canadian and British imports and have them available in our store.

Only a fraction of our inventory is currently represented in our on-line database.
Please don’t hesitate to ask us about titles you don’t see here.

We’ll gladly search our shelves for you!
