Second-Hand Book Sale

Named as ‘Manchester’s best second-hand book sale‘ by one of our visitors,  the Elizabeth Gaskell’s House second-hand book sale is a must visit for book lovers.

Two rooms packed full of second-hand books of all genres, including a wide variety of contemporary fiction, classics, OS maps, biographies, history and children’s! With new stock every month there are treasures to be found.

Included in admission to the House (tickets valid for 12 months).

All money raised from the sales of books goes towards running costs and ensuring the House stays open to the public.

The House accepts donations of fiction including poetry and plays (sorry we cannot accept large quantities of non-fiction books at the moment due to a shortage of storage space).  Please call in advance on 0161 273 2215 if you have a large donation of books – Please note books can only be dropped off on public open days (Wed, Thurs and Sunday).
