The Book Trader is a second-hand book store located in Philadelphia's historic Old City. We are currently celebrating more than 40 years in business! Located on the corner of 5th and South Street for nearly 30 years we moved to 7 N 2nd Street in 2004 and have been a fixture in Old City ever since. Stop in almost any time! We're open seven days a week, 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas.
