Ladybird Books To Sell

We are always pleased to hear from people with Ladybird books to sell, and have a reputation for always offering a fair price. The condition of the books is always important, for newer books we would be looking for books in very good or fine condition. The edition of the book is the other main consideration. Mainly we are looking for first editions or early editions, but with more popular items we are always interested in any edition. All books MUST have their spines intact. We do NOT buy Ex-Library copies normally.

Mainly we are looking for hardback books, except where titles were only produced in card wrap editions, and first editions or early editions.

We have a reputation for always offering a fair price and will always respond to your enquiry - but please note that we do NOT offer a general valuation service and we do not purchase everything that is offered to us. Books should only be brought into our shops with prior agreement.

What our suppliers say:-

"I had a wonderful  transaction with Sonia at Stella & Rose’s books in October 2014. The whole process was extremely smooth from start to finish, they were extremely helpful and informative about what I needed to do to make the process easy and swift, they also acted with an extremely high level of integrity throughout and they paid me for my books within hours. If you have quality books to sell, deal with these people. They are excellent in all respects!" D.B.
