Swap Shop

THIS SERVICE IS NO MORE: it has been superseded by the CABP overstocks, wants and offers facebook group. If you’re a Christian retailer/publisher/supplier with stock you need to clear, or seeking stock that you’re having difficulty obtaining, please head over there instead.

 So long, and thanks for all the fish!*

Welcome to the UKCBD Swap Shop!
This section is your opportunity to post details of your dead stock and place requests for those hard to find titles your customers want: surely somebody out there has a copy languishing unsold on their shelves?

As well as full bibliographic details, please remember to include your full contact details:

  • Bookshop name
  • Address
  • Contact Person
  • Telephone Number
  • Email
  • Website

And finally, please remember to come back and let us know when you’ve sold or swapped your unwanted tomes, or found what you were looking for!

The Rules
This is a free service for Christian Booksellers wishing to exchange stock with other Christian Booksellers: it is not intended for private individuals to post details of books for sale or wanted, nor is it for publishers or other entities wishing to promote sale of remaindered products (but by all means leave a message in the feedback section if you’d like to discuss this). No more than ten items or titles per post, please. Non-compliant posts are likely to be deleted without notice.

After six months, details of requests/exchanges (successful or otherwise) will be moved to the Swap Shop Archives.

No endorsement of any entity taking part is implied. Any relationship or transaction established between you and any other entity posting here exists only between you and that entity and is entered entirely at your own risk: it is your responsibility to satisfy yourself that any exchange agreed meets your requirements. You accept full liability for any actions that you take and for any consequences arising therefrom. By posting here you indicate your acceptance of these terms.
