How do you sell old books?

How do you sell old books?
« on: October 28, 2013, 10:05:20 AM »
I recently had a moving sale clean out and as part of this clean out I got some pretty old, first edition prints of books. Mostly kids books, most notably a Charles Dickens. I could go the ebay route, but looking up these books, they're selling but only at a rate of 1 a month or so.

So aside from ebay and amazon, how do you guys sell your older, antique books?

Find an independent used book store.  They wont give top dollar, they gotta make money too.   Just be sure to research the books first.   I took some pristine grade books to one and they offered $25, $5/book.  I was like really?  Cause I was just at the antique store and they offered $200 but were honest and said they were worth more but that's all they could go.


I ended up selling them on a used books website.  Not like text book site but old books, forums, Lit people....
Ive looked all over but can't find the site.   I'll keep looking and get back to you.......

Hey, it takes a lot of spine to post things like that.
