its funny reading the previous comment. I had a somewhat similar experience a few months back. I actually saw the same crazy owner lady in an argument with someone because she didnt want to take any of their books for trade- just wanted them to buy. Isnt this a used book store? Dont they need used books? I was not impressed by how unprofessional she was, and after noticing that their used books cost almost as much as new books from Amazon, I decided not to buy anything and leave before she started yelling at me for some reason! She really has no business dealing with the public- a real nut case. Or maybe business is just bad and she is tired of people bringing books but not buying? I noticed the place was pretty empty on a Saturday afternoon, which should be a peak time for them. I can only guess that she has chased away a lot of customers! Who needs that kind of stress when buying a book!

This has place has gone way down hill since it moved. Small location, over priced books for the condition, and they try yo lowball on trades. The woman, likely the owner, is horrible and unprofessional and actually tried to lie to me about the price of her books when I questioned why trade value was so low. When I showed her the same book at higher price, she got angry and told me to leave! Don't go here!

An excellent second hand bookstore. I have been going there for at least 15 years!
