Because VNSA wants everyone to have an equal opportunity to purchase books at the sale, we do NOT provide a Preview Sale to the public.  Entry to the Sale is on a first come, first served basis FREE of charge.

Location / Venue

Arizona State Fairgrounds
1826 West McDowell
Phoenix, AZ 85007


Admission from VNSA to the actual Book Sale.
The Arizona State Fairgrounds charges a parking fee.

At the annual book Sale, VNSA sells many different kinds of books and related items at real bargain prices.  Except for books in the Sets Area, books are marked with a price sticker on the spine, upper right cover and/or inside the front cover.  All unmarked standard size paperbacks are $2.00.
And remember, except for the books in Rare & Unusual, all items are half-price all day Sunday.

Payment Options

AZ Check (local checks only - No OUT OF STATE checks accepted)
Credit Card:  VISA and MasterCard

For the 2018 Book Sale, at this time, we do not expect there to be a shipping vendor available on-site.  

Tax Deduction

Books and related items donated to VNSA to be sold at the VNSA Used Book Sale are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  Internal Revenue Code places the responsibility for estimating the value of the items donated upon the donor, rather than the organization receiving the donation.  VNSA does not provide any goods or services in consideration, in whole or in part, for any items donated.  VNSA is tax-exempt under IRS Code Section 501(c)(3). For more information, contact info@vnsabooksale.org.  If you wish to be sent a receipt for a recent donation, click HERE.
