The Cross Art + Book Shop in Kings Cross

Sell your books

Sell your books any day of the week. You can drop them off and return later. If you have a lot of books, we can visit your Sydney home.

We buy books that we feel we can resell. We offer about 25 % of the price we expect to get when we sell them, or 30% in store credit. We base these prices on desirability, market value, in-print prices, condition and our current stock levels.

We buy scholarly and academic books – particularly about Asia, Australia and The Pacific. We are always looking for quality books on architecture, town planning & city life; art criticism & theory; art & artists; Australian studies and Sydney's cultural life; costume, fashion & textiles; cultural studies & philosophy; decorative arts & crafts; design history & theory; gay, lesbian & queer studies; gender & sexuality, graphic design, illustration, cartoons & animation; industrial & product design; interior design.

We are not interested in buying: children’s books, cookery books, damaged books, family bibles, out-of-date textbooks, encyclopaedias; novels; book club editions; magazines; self-help books, software user manuals.
