About Us

Your Local Indie Online Bookstore

Thrifty Joe’s has been serving Phoenix and the Valley of the Sun with a smile for more than 25 years, offering a unique curation of new and gently used books and gifts. We now serve the broader online community with the same smile and friendly service.

As a small, family owned business, we're big on customer relationships and obsessively picky about quality. We'd love to hear from you! 

We're Growing!

Our website is new, and we're adding products daily. Are you looking for a particular book? Send us a note with your request; we'll get it for you as quickly as possible!

Looking for Vinyl?

Many of our long-time customers are lovers of vinyl records. We've partnered with Vinyl Record Dude, another small local company, to provide you with a wide selection of gently used vinyl. They've been buying and selling vinyl for more than 10 years, and recently opened a brick and mortar location in the Scottsdale Airpark. Check 'em out at VinylRecordDude.com.


We offer free economy shipping (USPS Media Mail) for any order over $25, before sales tax.

Selling Your Used Books

We are not currently buying used books due to the pandemic.
