If you have Large Volume Donations (more than 1 – 6 boxes)

If you would like to donate rare/vintage/collectible books or items

If you are interested in donating items that you believe are rare, vintage, or collectible, please contact us either by email or by using our secure donation information form below. We will contact you regarding the next step in the donation process within 14 business days.

While we cannot provide a determination of the value of your item(s) due to IRS regulations, we will let you know whether we can accept your donation after a thorough evaluation. While it takes considerable time and expertise to sell  rare/collectible books and items in order to maximize proceeds, we deeply appreciate donors who entrust us with their rare/collectible items.

Email pictures of your item(s) along with your name, phone number, description of item (title, author, edition, copyright date, ISBN and/or other relevant information) to or complete the form below. Thank you!
