Used books at Maitland Markets
Another day in the search for and sale of second hand, rare and used books.
In our search for and sale of used and second hand books , our day begins at approximately 4.30am. We are going to Maitland Markets to sell some of our extensive stock of used books, paperbacks and romance used books, true crime, art and art magazines and children’s books. We are also going to see what other used book sellers have on offer for sale.
We are almost ready to leave , van won’t start, flat battery. No worries though, we ring around to see if some one can come and help us and as luck would have it we had a helper ready with a battery pack ready to charge our vehicle. Job done, van ok it’s off to the Maitland Markets It is a really cold but very nice morning.
We have for sale today 100′s of used children’s used books, various titles by Enid Blyton and lots of other used books to chose from. Clive Cussler, James Patterson, Lynda LaPlante, Di Morrissey, Nora Roberts, the list of used books is many.
We arrive at Maitland Markets at exactly 7am, any later you are not allowed in.
After setting up our own used books and settling in, I went to check out what the other used books the other stall holders had for sale.
As luck would have it I found purchased a used copy of Mallawindy by Joy Dettman. Joy Dettman is an Australian author who writes really good “Aussie” stories. I am quite looking forward to reading these used books. I found several other used books that I was looking for and purchased those as well.
A cold but nice day selling used books at Maitland Markets
The weather remained perfect for the day while we enjoyed buying and selling used books. Quite a few customers put in requests for used books that they have been unable to locate We will scout around through the week and see if we can locate any of the used books they requested.
