Vintage & Antique decorator books by the foot and by color by Old New River Books. Choose the color and quantity you need from the right hand drop-down menus.

Why Vintage and Antique Books:
• Decorative book collections make a perfect addition to any home or office by adding warmth, texture and a unique design element as no two collections are alike.
• Vintage and antique books can be used to create your dream library, to tie together a room’s color palate, to add a conversation piece to your coffee table, to style your bookcases, as a plant stand, a wedding centerpiece, or create into something brand new through art. The possibilities are endless.

Pricing:
• Prices are PER foot of books. Typically, a foot (12”) of books includes 8-10 books. This may vary.

Description and Details:
• The books in the listing pictures are examples of previously sold collections to be used as reference only. You will receive different books, though similar in style. Color will be based on your preference.
• Books in collections typically range in height from 8” to 9.5” and width 5.5” to 6.5”. Sizes do vary.
• When purchasing by the foot, each 12” collection is typically between 8 to 10 books.
• Books are selected for aesthetics and color not content. So titles are chosen at random. We try to remove any potentially offensive titles.
• Books are sold by color of the spine. The majority of books are the same color on the covers as spines. This gives you flexibility to decide if you want them to stand up or lay down. There are exceptions to this rule as certain colors are rarer and more limited than others. White, purple, and yellow books are rarer than red, blue, and green books.
• You will receive pictures of your collection for final confirmation prior to shipping, so please make sure your Etsy notifications are turned on or check back. We will not ship without confirmation unless otherwise stated.
• All books have been inspected, dusted and/or cleaned prior to shipment. Please keep in mind that part of the charm of these vintage books are that they have had previous lives and along with that comes signs of aging and normal wear.
• All books are hardcover unless otherwise stated or desired.
• These books are not only beautiful to look at but many are also completely readable.
• Only books are for sale. Decor and props used in photos are not included in the sale.
• Our stock is renewed on a regular basis.

Condition Notes:
• The books we select from typically range from late 1800s to 1950s– putting them in the antique to vintage category. Books are sold as is.
• When purchasing vintage and antique books, please keep in mind that they have had previous lives and are in used condition varying from acceptable to very good with the majority in good condition. Additional condition considerations are:
o Signs of past lives are part of the charm and have not been cleaned away including inscriptions, stamps, or previous owner’s name, address and date on inside cover/page.
o Spines and covers will be intact. Bindings tight.
o Books will not contain any heavy markings or highlighting throughout the text.
o While some older books do have a faint odor that comes with age, our books will not smell of smoke or mildew.
o Books may show slight imperfections to pages and covers such as fading, foxing, soiling, scratches, etc.
o Books will not be ex-library books, unless stated beforehand.

Customization:
• We're happy to help with custom requests. For instance, if you want a full matching set from the same publisher, a specific length of books that's not available in the dropdown, or you're hoping to get completely different colors on the spines. Use the comment box/Note field on the checkout page or contact us (oldnewriverbooks@gmail.com) before ordering to discuss special requests, customization or questions. We have hundreds of books in our inventory and we would be happy to work with you to create something totally unique.

• We provide FREE shipping using USPS Media Mail with tracking. Depending on your location relative to Virginia (where we are), please allow for the 3 to 14 days for arrival.

I love the character these books bring to my bookshelf! I sent in a pic to Heather and she picked out a custom set of books to complement the colors already here. She was extremely prompt in picking out books and shipping. My books did come in a pretty torn apart cardboard box but all the books inside were fine. Maybe use more sturdy boxes for shipping!

The perfect finishing touches to my mantle! Laurel was so great to work with. I sent her two pictures of the space where I used the books and she picked out the perfect shades of blue with gold lettering to draw out various gold accents in my living room. Would highly recommend!

I cannot say enough positive things about shopping with OldNewRiverBooks! I ordered and Heather reached out to me immediately. She was able to specifically match the colors of browns and blues to pictures from my living room that she requested. She followed up with pictures of the exact sets I would receive the very next day and shipped them as soon as I approved. The colors, quality and character of the books are beyond my expectation. I’ve shopped with other Etsy sellers selling a similar product and the quality, price and experience was not comparable to working with Heather! She was so nice and accommodating. I will definitely buy more books!

Easiest 5 stars ever given for a review. Heather outdid herself. I expected to place an order & be surprised with the books. Heather took the time out to contact me and hand select books that matched a photo I sent of my color scheme I had for my vision. I was truly blown away. I’ve never experienced customer service like this on Etsy. She was beyond kind, the books she sent are gorgeous. I would recommend her in the blink of an eye. Get your books from Heather!
