Conditions Of Sale:

The Book Barn is located in Wells, Maine from late May to Late October and in Edgewater Florida from early November to mid-May. My wife and I have been in business since 1985, in a brick & mortar store whose physical property we sold in 2007. We continue to offer books, autographs, paper, and music online at various sites.

We consider our business to be a reader's as well as a collector's inventory. We have an approximate inventory of 10,000-15,000 items---including both hard cover & paperback books----in addition to movies, music. autographs, & prints for both the reader and collector.

In Invaluable online auction mode, we have no reserve prices on items, using our "starting bid" in lieu of a sometimes confusing and always irritating reserve price. Bidders will note that lot(s) with <b> very low </b> Staring Bids & <b> lots </b> where the <b> per item </b> cost is $1-$5, should in no way see those Starting Bids or per item cost of $1-$5 as the Book Barn's judgment on the value of the item(s) contained in the lot(s). We have been in the Used/OP book business for 30+ years & have a <b> LOT </b> of inventory, with more piling up weekly. (Sometimes it seems to us that books breed at night, so there are always more of them over time!) These low Starting Bid/low per item lot(s) are meant to lower our inventory by providing bidders the opportunity to buy material at a low prices--we call it the "Eek" price; as in "Eek! That's all in sold for?" Our lack of storage is your opportunity to buy material at a low price.



My wife and I also author articles on investing for income on Seeking Alpha.com, e-books, as well as publishing scarce out-of-print Public Domain titles in e-book format on Amazon Kindle publishing. Our e-books are also available through Draft2Digital.com for Nook, iBookstore, etc. readers. Our e-books are mostly non-fiction in the area of 1) U. S. Civil War, 2) U. S. Indian wars; especially those in Texas & on the Great Plains, and 3) Texas History; both as a Republic and as a state. Our e-book titles can be found by a Google or other search of my name---Harry Polizzi---for any voracious readers that may be interested.
