Selling books at auction or to Robinson Street books

Over the years we've bought and sold books via auctions.  When consigning books to auction you often have to wait 6 months or more for your books to reach  the  auction room and then another month or two to receive payment.  one book auction house recently had its owner arrested for not paying the cosigners the proceeds from the sale of their valuables.  At Robinson Street Books we pay immediately for books we can use.  No waiting six months or a year nor worry about collecting what's yours.  Some auction house mix books with clothing, furniture pots and pans.  We buy anything paper, books, lietters, manuscripts, but not pots and pans or furniture.  We use our 44 years experience in the business of books to make immediate decisions and pay immediately
