About Our Shop

General Information

McDowell's Emporium is an open shop, located in a little old house off N. Main St. in Anderson, South Carolina that is brimming with used, out-of-print, and select new hardback and paperback books. Our inventory includes most major categories with large selections of Literature/Fiction, Juvenile, Religion, Mysteries/Thrillers, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Romance, Christian Fiction, Regional, and Cookbooks. We currently have 5000+ books in our ever-growing online inventory with more than 35,000 in our open shop. We package our books with profound care and ship daily during weekdays.

Here's a blog about our shop by one of our customers:

Book Images

All images are actual scans of the books. New listings that are added to the website daily will contain images, however you will notice a rather large back log of books that do not contain images. While we are working steadily to have all books on the website scanned, it is a long and tedious process. If a book you are interested in does not have an image and you would like to see one, please send us an email to and we will be more than happy to send you one.

Book Conditions

We use the Independent Online Booksellers Association's standard grading system to describe the condition of our books. Click here for a complete explanation of their grading system.
