Have you old books you wish to sell?

Unicorn Books are always in the market to buy second hand books. This can be from private sellers having a clean out, estate sales or private collections. Nothing is too large or small and we buy from people all over New Zealand, so if you have books to sell please call us.

Our Managers have 30 years’ experience in the book buying trade – so we can quickly appraise any books that you have to sell.

Just email us some photo(s) of your books and we will quickly provide you an appraisal and price estimate.
