Buying remainders and bargain books
CIROBE doesn't sell remainders, we just run a trade show. We also do not have any way to help you find a particular book. If you are interested in buying remainders and bargain books, your first stop should be our exhibitor listings. Write, call, or email the companies who look interesting to you for a list or catalogue. Good deals and good buys go quickly in the bargain book world, and quantities are finite. Be prepared to put some energy into making contacts who see the kinds of material you are interested in, and be aware that everybody gets something a little unusual once in a while. That's why it makes so much sense to go to a trade show (like CIROBE for example!) and get a chance to see books and people in person. Below is a link to a page listing shows other than CIROBE with a large bargain book presence and how to get more information on them.
Selling remainders and bargain books
CIROBE doesn't buy remainders either. Here you have two options, sell to a buyer of bargain books or perhaps come to CIROBE to sell your book. For finding a buyer of bargain books, if you've only got one book or a small quantity to sell, again the best place to begin is with our exhibitor listings. Contact several remainder companies and give them information on your book(s). Of course, we are extremely interested in new exhibitors coming to CIROBE, and if you have more than one book and/or large quantities of a book, we sure hope you'll consider coming. Our attendees are always interested in seeing new titles and being offered a great deal. Although we can't tell you which is the right choice for you, we sure hope you'll consider coming to meet them.
Our mailing list
We do not sell or rent our attendee mailing list. We also do not pass along attendee names to our exhibitors. (Although of course if you need to contact someone we will give you any information we have on them.) Please come to CIROBE to meet our attendees and our exhibitors.
