If you’d like to talk about scheduling a book-donation pick-up, give me a call at:

(315) 480-0890

Because of space-limitations in my home,  I only pick up donations of books, magazines, comic books, etc. that I’m interesting in adding to my online storefront inventories. However, there are a few other options you might want to check out:

  • Purple Heart Donations (provides pickups!) = Phone # 703-256-6139
  • Nana’s Attic Thrift Store – in Broomall PA (they love book donations, but you have to deliver them) = 610-325-0768
  • Goodwill – Any goodwill store accepts book donations, but you have to deliver + provides great tax-write off amounts for your books.
