Sunflower Books policies
We price most of our used books at around 50% of the new price, depending on condition. This means mass market paperbacks (like you see in the grocery store) average $4 and new trade paperbacks (the larger paperbacks) range from $7-9. Hardbacks are priced based on two factors – whether the book has come out in paperback and the demand for a given title. Generally they vary from 1/3-1/2 the new retail price, or $12-16.
We also carry a selection of rare and collectible books. These books are priced based on their scarcity and the current market price as determined by comparing prices from other dealers. Many of our collectible books are signed and numbered (meaning only a fixed number were printed), and most are first editions. These range in price from $25-$500 and up.
We ship on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, so this means your order will generally ship within 2 business days of being placed. Please be aware that we’re a small operation and during high volume times such as the holidays we can’t guarantee this time. However, we will always do our best to fulfill your order as quickly as possible.
We offer returns for store credit only within two weeks of purchase. Books must be in a condition suitable for resale – this means new books must be unread and used books must be in the condition they were received with no broken spine. Buyer pays return shipping.
