Antique Books & Eclectic Vintage from Northern California
I grew up on a ranch, built in the 1900's. My cherished toys were antiques and my playground the barn filled with forgotten folklore.
I was still quite young one hot summer day when I stumbled across a box of treasures that changed my life. I was introduced to new friends and they welcomed me into their world.
While other kids were playing the long days away, reveling in their freedom, I was curled up under a tree with a tattered paperback. Fondly I recall, the wind tosseled leaves above; their shadows spilling dappled sunlight. Many a night I came in, chilly and stiff from sitting for hours, yet delighting in the vivid imagery.
I was astonished by George Orwell's Animal Farm. Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 left me speechless . Luckily Tolkien, Mark Twain and C.S. Lewis were there to soften the mood!
Every book-lover will tell you; It was the beginning of something wonderful.
I seem to be specializing in Modern Lit - though it also seems that I can't pass up Readers and Metaphysical texts. In fact, I seem to have a little bit of everything; Children's, Poetry, Sci-Fi, Mystery, Theater.... Anything that strikes me as interesting. Anything that speaks to my heart.
Every book I have to offer you is a friend of mine. I have carefully flipped through the pages, noting the history and its physical character (condition) in great detail. I have learned the author, their works, their life and whenever possible make notes on the listing, sometimes a lengthy synopsis.
Every book is treated with the utmost care - they are mine, after all....
...until they are yours.
New books are listed often, it's well worth coming back to visit the shop.
I welcome inquiries and comments,
Owner, Curator, Shipper
