We Buy Books!


Tin Can Mailman buys thousands of books (including TEXTBOOKS) year round. Come sell or trade your books 5 days a week. We offer cash or credit for your gently used books. We evaluate your books based on condition, salability, how current, how popular, and how many copies we have. We cannot stress enough that condition is very important to your books being accepted.   We do not take smelly, moldy or dirty books so please take the time to make all your trades are in good, clean condition!

On average, we give twice as much credit as cash. Please note that once you opt for credit.  All customer accounts that have no activity for the last 5 years will be made INACTIVE, so please come in and use you credit on a regular basis.  We will always have a huge and varied selection to choose from!  Should you choose to opt for cash, we require a photo ID in order to pay you out.

 We will be continually adjusting the trade limits to accommodate inventory volume. 

The Tin Can Mailman is not purchasing books at this time.

We will resume book buying on Wednesday, June 26th

If you are coming from out of the area or have more boxes than we are currently accepting, please call ahead of time to speak with the manager and book buyer to schedule an appointment so that we can accommodate you.
