Let us help you find the perfect book

Welcome to Vashon Bookshop! We have a friendly, experienced staff and an eclectic inventory of new and gently used books, including extensive children's and mystery sections. Come in to browse our shelves, read on the couch, relax, or play a game of checkers.

Special orders

We are happy to place special orders. Ordering through us is as quick and easy as ordering online—most books arrive within 2 to 3 days. And we don't charge shipping! Call, email, or simply stop by.

Book trades

  • We offer store credit for your gently used books—we do not offer cash.
  • No appointment needed—but no drop-offs.
  • Please wait briefly while we sort through your books—those we can’t use go home with you.

Our main considerations:

  • book condition
  • current inventory
  • is book outdated?
  • no hardcover fiction (if available in paperback)

Store credit

Store credit can be used for:

  • The full price of used books in stock
  • 20% of the price of a new book

Unused credit expires after two years of account inactivity.

Book clubs

We have a table dedicated to island book clubs. Let us know if you'd like us to carry your book club's selections. Book club selections are 20% off.

Gift certificates

Gift certificates make great presents and are always available.
