Thrift Books was started in July 2003 in a small storage unit in Kirkland, WA with a commitment to provide quality cheap used books at the lowest prices anywhere.
Just two months after founding the company the first book was purchased and shipped: Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White for $4.74.
Thrift Books has
emerged from its modest beginnings to become the nation’s largest online seller of used books with a growing international presence. The Thrift Books’ marketplace
has grown to include third party vendors such as Green Earth Books, Motor City Books, the Atlanta Book Company, Books Squared, Yankee Clipper Books, Blue Cloud Books,
Silver Arch Books, Free State Books and Sierra Nevada Books. A national presence and anticipated future growth will ensure a continually growing selection of used books
and even faster shipping to Thrift Books' customers.
