Consignment at Wellesley Books
As a local business, our consignment program allows us to support local authors and offer books that tie in to our community, which includes Wellesley, Weston, Natick, Needham, Newton, Dover, Sherborn, and Wayland. If you live or work in Wellesley or one of our neighboring towns, or if your book is about one of these communities, it may be a great fit. (Please note: We will not consider requests that fall outside these guidelines.)
We do have additional requirements in order to ensure consignment books can be properly shelved in the store. These include:
- Books must have an ISBN and scannable barcode.
- Books must be recently published (within the last six months).
- The title and author's name must be printed on the spine.
We stock titles for a minimum of 90 days and for as long as sales continue at a reasonable pace. We do periodically discontinue consignment titles in order to keep our inventory fresh and to create room for newer books, and will notify you when we have remaining copies for you to pick up.
We take a 40% discount from the selling price for all copies sold, and you keep the remaining 60%. We issue payment when we request replenishment, as well as a final payment for any additional copies sold when we discontinue your book.
If you wish to proceed, please provide us with the following information about yourself and your book, and we will review your request. If we decide to bring in your book, we will send you an e-mail with additional information confirming terms and logistics.
