Getting rid of old/used martial arts books

Postby fuga on Sat Jan 26, 2019 11:40 am

Does anyone here successfully sell old martial arts books?

If so, are you selling online and on what platforms?

Way too many books accumulated over the years that never even get looked at anymore...

I don't sell them, but I buy from Half Price Books, who maintain their own inventory (I believe you can bring yours in for credit) and also act as a broker between individuals.

What have you got? I may want to take some off your hands.

I would actually have to organize them all in one place to even figure out what I have - both English language and Chinese language books. Mostly internal arts stuff, and also magazines.

Amazon used to be good for this, but now they are charging a monthly seller fee. You can get it waived for personal goods, but you have to ask.

I usually search abebooks.com when i am looking to buy a used or old out of print book

I don't know what they are like to sell through- I have only been a customer

but might be worth checking out

Abebooks works okay, but the turnover is slower as they get less traffic.

Is Jim still a member of this site? His wife could surely find a use for them.
