Does Native Books ship internationally?

Unfortunately, at this time, we are not taking international orders. We are looking forward to shipping to select locations soon. If you feel very strongly about having a book shipped internationally try email us at and we may be able to work something out!


Do you buy rare, used, or out-of-print books?

Yes, we can buy your used books that are from and about Hawaiʻi and the Pacific. Please email Lise at regarding selling your books.

If you would like to sell a large amount of books (imagine one bankers box, can your books fit comfortable inside one bankers box? if not, then you might have a large amount of books), just know that we love pictures of the books you would like to sell (on the shelf, off the shelf, spines) and we really love spreadsheets.

We also accept book donations of books that are specifically from and about Hawaiʻi and the Pacific.

Do you sell rare, used, or out-of-print books?

Yes! Please email Lise at if there are specific books or subject matter you are looking to acquire. Many books pass Lise's desk so there is a great likelihood we could have it, and if not we can let you know when we come across it!

We feature Off the Wall, a rare, used, and out-of-print book sale in the Arts & Letters Gallery twice or thrice a year. Follow us on instagram or sign up for our Nūleka (below) to learn about when the next Off the Wall book sale is.
